Customer questions about this product

Is this wooden-handled utensil dishwasher safe?
Utensils with wooden handles are not dishwasher safe; exposure to hot water can cause the wood to warp or splinter. These items should be hand washed and dried thoroughly. For optimal results, use a wood conditioner periodically to prolong the life of the wood.
Is a pastry brush different from a basting brush?
Both brushes are the same, however you should only use your brush for either pastries or for basting and not both prep tasks. Using separate brushes for baking tasks and meat basting is important, as it ensures that flavors are not being accidentally transferred between your pastry and meat products.
What type of pastry brush material is best?
The answer all depends on your intended application. Synthetic ones are highly resistant and can be used on wet or dry surfaces. Silicone ones can even withstand high temperatures while resisting stains and odors. Meanwhile, boar or natural style bristles do a good job of retaining fluids, which is helpful for preparing large quantities of product.

Ateco 60040 Details

Tackle a variety of cooking and baking tasks with this convenient Ateco 60040 4"W Boar Bristle Pastry/Basting Brush! Featuring a 4" wide brush, it can be used for coating fluffy, fresh-baked pastries with butter, oil, or water. It is made with natural white boar bristles, epoxy-set in a stainless steel ferrule to help prevent bacteria and the shedding of bristles. The stainless steel ferrule is a durable, more heat-resistant alternative to plastic or composite ferrules.

Compared to nylon or silicone bristles, boar bristles have higher heat resistance and greater absorbency, both important for a kitchen tool! Plus, the natural bristles work better for spreading olive oil, thin marinades, or butter onto product.
