Due to the nature of the sale of Chametz, some Poskim argue one must sell the Kelim that one’s Chametz is stored in, because, in order for the Kinyan Chatzer to be effective, the movables must be stored in the buyer’s vessels, not the sellers. As such, great debate has spanned centuries of Halachic history with Poskim taking a variety of approaches to this issue, which remains unresolved today. Although nowadays, most of the Shetarot Mechirah don’t sell the kelim, as we cover Chatzer’s deficiency by combining it with other Kinyanim, such as Agav and Maot, there are still some that do. LeMaaseh, Rav Ovadia says even if one did such a thing, a beracha would not be recited when taking the kelim to the mikveh. See full shiur for details.
