Lining the fridge/ freezer: Saran wrap is a great shelf/drawer liner if the standard refrigerator liners are not the right size for you. Keep it in place with Mavalus tape. Door shelves can be slipped into bread bags and hooked back into place. If you have food in the fridge that is still being used with food in the chometz corner, pour or spoon the amount you wish to use into a clean plastic dish, replace container in fridge and take only the plastic dish to the chometz corner so you don’t have to worry about chometz coming back into the fridge. Cabinet and oven knobs, and handles: Cover with saran wrap and secure with Scotch tape. Make sure Scotch tape goes only onto saran wrap so nothing else gets sticky. I cover only the cabinet knobs that have items being used on Pesach, so everyone can easily tell which cabinets may be opened on Pesach. Once everything is covered, you can finally pull out those cookbooks and get cooking. Do you start with the fun stuff, such as desserts and cakes, because the soups and chicken will happen anyway? Or are you very practical, and do the basics first, hoping to squeeze in some extras “if you’ll have time?” Either way, enjoy your kitchen; you’ll be spending quite some time there now! Note: Make sure to ask your rav about waiting 24 hours before kashering.
