Question about kashruth

Are brand-new, just-purchased dishes (pots, pans, storage containers, etc.) considered to be kosher out of the box, or do they have to be koshered by the purchaser / recipient?

What if they are purchased, taken into a non-kosher home, and wrapped and mailed to a secondary recipient without being taken out of the box in which they were packaged?
