This is from Pesachbox.com:Trying to figure out what that means. Is everything exempt from Tevillah? Or are they relying on the same heteirim I would use if I bought something on Amazon?

Gotcha, but seemingly no longer an option.

Either way,
@aygart can keilim be toiveled in lake carasaljo? If not is there any better places around?
That is what I am currently advising people based upon guidance I recieved.

https://425737ce-f973-4dfc-9489-f94594893f71.filesusr.com/ugd/628775_27264a5995c941e586cedcbdd2982b90.pdf

These are the instructions from https://www.pesachbox.com/
Quote
The Kailim Mikva is closed. Tevilas Kailim for dishes or appliances requiring tevilla may be done at Lake Carasaljo in an inlet that is not in the main flow of water (one such spot is area near Lakewood Avenue and 5th Street, as the Rosh Yeshiva Reb Aharon Zt”l allowed Tevilas Kailim along that area.) Extreme care should be taken to find a separate spot with full social distancing and to not be near anyone else.
(The guidance I received did not include anything about an inlet)
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

I just made an emergency pesach order on Amazon. Pots, pans, urn the whole chibang. Everything is being delivered this Wednesday. Make sure to check off prime when searching.

If you need help with a specific item I’ll be more than glad to help.

Why Amazon when others can deliver quicker?
I sometimes think we are addicted to Amazon.
I personally found wayfair, wallmart & macys to be cheaper...

Which goy would be selling those?
there's a non-jewish hardware store in Brookline MA across from The Butcherie that sells many items that say "אין צריך טבילה"

usually I would do some shopping around on those sites however in this situation I’m not risking anything arriving too late, return issues if needed etc. In this situation, Amazon fits the bill. Sometimes there are pretty good deals actually.
