Customer questions about this product

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.

Carlisle 4037900 Details

This basic but functional, Carlisle 4037900 3" Sparta Meteor bright white boar bristle pastry / basting brush with hook can be used for coating fluffy fresh baked pastries with butter, egg wash, or water, or for coating meats with delicious marinades and sauces. It is made with soft, flagged white boar bristles that are double boiled, bleached, and sterilized to insure the highest quality and sanitization, and are molded into the brush's base to prevent bacteria. Plus, the boar bristles work better than alternative brushes for spreading thin liquids such as olive oil, butter, and vinegar-based marinades.

With its wide and flat design, this brush is ideal for jobs like basting a roast, buttering phyllo dough sheets, or applying an egg wash on large loaves and pastries. The larger size of it is even helpful for spreading liquids or sauce, making it great even for tasks like making pizza. Easy to use, this pastry brush is sure to become a go-to kitchen tool!

To clean, simply dip the brush in a commercial cleaning solution. Its durable construction can withstand temperatures reaching 500 degrees. A hook has been crafted onto the outside of the base allowing the brush to hang on the lip of crocks or other containers, preventing contamination and bristle burn, melt, or distortion, often resulting from resting against hot pan bottoms. The Carlisle 40379 boar bristle pastry brush has a 3" brush width and a 7" handle with an oval loop at its end for easy storage.

Overall Dimensions:
Handle Length: 7"
Bristle Trim: 1 7/8"

    I was very happy with this brush initially. It still works better than most other brushes I've bought but the bristles are starting to come off and it looks pretty much used up. I've used it about 12x. See the photo.
    These brushes are durable and last a good length of time. We use them for buttering bread and buns. I would say they are great for pastries as well!
    you can't go wrong with a carlisle product. these are nice because the hook allows the brush to hang above the melted butter we use it for. quality is very good.
    Great product at a good price. We use this to brush garlic knots with garlic butter and it works perfectly. This should hold up well over time.
    It is a Durable brush that is easy to clean. It will lose an occasional bristle. The built in hook feature is very useful for us.
    These great brushes, we use pretty heavy. They last pretty much forever The price really matches the quality as well! They clean up very easy
    I purchased this to use for basting butter on garlic knots, etc. This works wonderfully! It absorbs enough of the butter to give a good coating each time.
    Nice simple boar pastry bristle great for using on pastry or even just spreading butter on biscuits or toast and for the price can't go wrong.
    A great quality brush it I have found that the bristles do not break off very easily and they last for a good 23 months and for the price you're able to be able to change them out without breaking the bank.
    This brush is high quality and does not fall apart like others. I use it daily and its held up great over time with no ware.
    Item is exactly as described. Good quality and comfort. After use with flat top applications item will slowly deteriorate as expected when dealing with hot surface applications. Have continued to reorder item and never been disappointed.
    If you're looking for a wide pastry brush - then look no further! This is a favorite of mine as it makes quick work of brushing pastry dough with egg wash, butter, or water (as the case may be). It is dishwasher safe, and as will all bristled brushes, I like to gently tug at the bristles before each use to make sure none are loose.
    these are the best brushes that we were able to find. We are using them every day and they hold up well to the daily use. They don't loose their hair like other brands did. Since we are using them on a daily basis we change them out for new ones every 3-6 months.
    Perfect to butter fresh out of the over loaves. Held enough butter to need only initial dip. Brush had no loose hairs. Easy to clean.
    We have this brush on our flat top in a pan of drawn butter. for toast and sandwiches The bristles have held up nicely to a lot of use and abuse. You can brush the grill directly and the bristles don't burn or melt. It can get knocked off the hook fairly easily, but other than that it's a good brush.
    I use this brush a lot. I love the little hook on the side. The bristles are soft which makes basting and brushing easy business.
    Great wide and soft bristle brush - the hook is great for sanitary storage in between uses hang it on a 1/6th pan - the bristles will melt on high heat
    These are wonderful and i love the little hook to hang it on a pan. The bristles are light enough that it does not deflate my proofed rolls and they hold a surprising amount of liquid. Love love love this.
    Man, I really wanted to buy the more expensive version of this, but common sense prevailed. It works great, and the hook on the side of it keeps it out of the butter spread that we use. NOT very heat resistant - it melts pretty quickly on heat.
    Used with a 1/6 food pan and oil. So far no hairs have come out after many washes. The little hook is a good feature to avoid leaving a mess.
    Awesome brush! Very well built and sturdy. The bristles are well attached, and don't come out. Also, being Boar Bristle, they hold up well to heat, so great for oiling our flattop griddle.
    I use this product on a daily basis and it has been great. The best part of it is the hook feature. It really sets this product a part from its competition.
    I use this brush everyday on the line. Whether its buttering bread or brushing egg wash on empandas, this brush gets it done. And its easy to clean.
    We use these for oil, egg wash, and garlic butter in preparing our pizza products every day. The life of the product has far exceeded what I expected for the price. The hook on the side is awesome, especially when we start out with a full pan of product.
    These are great. I worked in the bakeshop at a hotel and i was constantly making breads and pies etc... I used this brush all the time to coat everything in an eggwash or milk. Great buy.
    This brush is perfect for saucing ribs! Hook is great for storing the brush on the side of a container for ease! Great for basting meats too!!!
    The 3" is a great value for the money.The brush is big enough for applying bbq sauce to ribs for glazing. Very happy with the quality.
