The blessing “…Who did command us to burn the leaven” is sewn out from the shovel and the saying “All manner of leaven that is in my possession, that which I have not seen, as well as that which I have not removed shall hereby be annulled, and accounted as the dust of the earth” is sewn out from the rear roller. The pipes on the top serve as candle and feather holders. The rear roller ensures the crushing of all unfound leaven into dust of the earth. All these features enable a wonderful and cheerful fulfillment of the commandment. By using this design, the person performing the Mitzvah of collecting the leaven has to crouch down closer to the floor, thereby better fulfilling the search for leaven.
