Q. Is it necessary to kasher meat utensils in a meat pot, or dairy utensils in a dairy pot?
A. The only requirements for the kashering pot are that it be clean and not have been used for 24 hours. Once those requirements have been met, you may kasher any dishes in it, regardless of whether they or the pot were previously used for kosher, non-kosher, dairy, meat, chametz or Pesach. Some have a minhag to have a designated “kashering pot” which is used for nothing else but kashering; families with this custom should continue to follow it.
