Breadcrumb: Break that pot!

According to Lev. 6:28, if a sin offering was cooked in an earthenware pot, the pot needed to be broken after the sacrifice was made. Furthermore, if it was cooked in a bronze or bass pot, the pot needed to be scoured and rinsed with water. In this situation, at least, modern society is not the first to have a disposable-products culture. Why did the Israelites need to dispose (or at least thoroughly clean) the pots used to cook the sin offerings? Yet again, we may never know.
