These are absoluty great in the kitchen . I like to use them when basting meat and it is good for bbq. You can but them at the dollar store for a lot cheaper
I have tried the el-cheapo Basting Brushes, Basting Brushes that twist onto BBQ Sauce bottles, and even acrylic basting brushes – with results that do the job, but do not do the job well.
My OrBlue basting brush is beautiful. It has a sleek design, long handle, separate bristles, and matches my other main kitchen utensils – matching sets are important to my husband, and quality is important to me.
The bristles work smoothly over a multitude of surfaces – whether it be applying BBQ sauce on the Bar-B-Cue, basting a chicken that is roasting in the oven, or even slathering butter on corn on the cob – these bristles do not fail. For example, last night we had corn on the cob, and the comparison of applying butter with our old brush vs this brush were quite evident. The butter doesn`t get stuck in the bristles where they meet the base, excess butter easily rubs back into its container, and it allowed for an easy full application of butter instead of the sporadic and clumpy layer we normally have.
The handle is also quite comfortable to grip, having a slight ergonomic angle to it. It also has a nice length, allowing your arm to stay at a distance from hotter surfaces if you are basting in the middle of cooking a meal.
With respect to cleaning – just as we learned with our butter experience, the bristles are so easy to clean, we do not have to worry about excess butter or sauce remaining in the crevices between the bristles.
You cannot go wrong with this basting brush – it will be the last one you will own!
I have many OrBlue kitchen products, and they never cease to please our family – sleek in design and quality, you just cannot go wrong.
*** I received this product at a reduced cost for my fair and fabulous review ***
This silicone brush really does everything you can ask of it. In the past I've been let down by brushes with bristles that came loose, that didn't pick up much liquid, or that were a nightmare to clean, and this brush solves all those problems
The silicone bristles clean easy, pick up lots of liquid, and since they aren't inserted into the brush there's not chance of them falling out. The handle also has a strong grip, so no sloping or dropping it, and an opening a the end for hanging it up, which I love as a bonus feature.
The brush is very heat resistant, so you can use this on food on the grill even if it's burning hot, and it's dishwasher safe! I tried it out with a variety of liquids and was happy to find it didn't let me down with any of them, from oil to sauces. It spreads smoothly and evenly, and holds a lot of liquid on each pass.
When it comes to the comparison between traditional pastry brushes and silicone, I do feel traditional brushes spread slightly better, but silicon has the edge in ease of use and cleanliness since it doesn't stay wet for long or harbor germs.
Finally, and this is just personal taste, but I really love the look of the brush. The colours are beautiful and it looks great in my kitchen .
-Easy grip handle with hook for storage.
-Very heat resistant.
-Bristles pick up lots of sauce or liquid.
-Easy to clean.
-Silicone not as effective as hair/fibre brushes.
