Customer Q&AAsk a Question

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.

This is a nice pastry brush! Sauce sticks to it really well, and I love the one side has tiny little nobs that act as feet so you can set the brush down without the bristles touching the counter.

We bought these as an experiment. We were trying to find brushes to use for butter basting. To our surprise they work extremely well. They hold the butter for basting and most importantly they clean up easily. Cleaning kitchen utensils is always a challenge and the silicone makes that easy.

Brian W. from Moonraker Enterprises LLC on 01/23/2022

These work great for brushing oil. The thick silicone strands on the brush dont fall out. When we used a traditional basting brush we were constantly have issues of the bristles getting into peoples food.

Mischa S. from Piesanos on 07/01/2021

I love this basting brush it is very wide so it covers a lot of surface. It is very sanitary because when you said it down it doesn’t touch the counter it’s also rubber so super easy to wash. Love it.

Michaela F. from Hhbc on 07/09/2020

I was in the market for a silicone pastry brush to butter and put egg wash on breads and this is large enough that it covers the items evenly.

James B. on 10/28/2019

This basting brush can handle all different types of things. We use it for our barbecue sauce and it can really baste different types of meats. It has a hook that can be used to hook the brush in a bowl so it doesn’t slide in the sauce and it is super easy to clean. I would buy more of them once I have the need to.

Carissa D. on 10/17/2019

I love these brushes to brush garlic on our pizza crust. it is too big for the smaller pizzas but still do the job. i went and ordered a smaller one just for that

Shquita I. from Davincis Pizza on 08/28/2019

Good sized brush and a good price. The wide head makes it ideal for buttering or egg washing large breads and the bristles seem durable.

Nicolas A. from La Fonda Paisa on 08/10/2019

I've had it for a couple of years now and it has held in pretty good shape, I don't use it frequently but the quality is there.

David F. on 06/24/2019

These brushes work great. I use mine for spreading butter oil. They hold spread out the oil very well. The only down side is some of the bristles can break from washing after a long time of being used.

David B. from Papa Murphy's Pizza on 06/17/2019

Good baster. Ridges on brush help capture whatever you are applying. Seem to work well. I will recommend this to anyone who needs a basting brush.

Matthew S. from The Village Butcher on 06/09/2019

The silicon bristles on this brush are extremely durable and can handle lots of abuse. The handle is also quite strong and will last us for a while. An excellent purchase as it is great quality, but cheaper than the competition.

Jeremy W. on 03/18/2019

This Carlisle 3" pastry brush is just right for chicken breast of fish fillets. It's about the same width as a piece of chicken breast so brushing oil on the chicken is simple. I just pour a little oil on the meat and brush away.

Victor C. on 03/06/2019

This pastry brush is easy to use, easy to clean and is of good quality. I would recommend and I would buy it again if I needed another one.

Giovanni C. on 03/03/2019

This product lasts! We've used these silicone pastry brushes in our restaurant for almost 2 years and they work great for spreading olive oil on pizzas, pretzels, etc. I would recommend purchasing.

Charlie I. from A&K Neidert LLC on 01/05/2019

Durable little pastry brush. Washes easily, and is a lot more hygienic than a imitation bristle brush. Easy to clean up and dries quickly for storage.

Shaun M. on 10/20/2018

This pastry brush holds onto things you want to brush very well, and it cleans easily. I like the way it coats things - it's nice and wide and can coal pasties and breads in a small amount of time with minimal effort.

Richard F. on 08/26/2018

We have hot honey we deal with. This brush really holds up! The holder on the side so it sits on the lip of the pan nicely. Very durable. So happy I bought this product!

Jen Z. from Hell Fire Foods on 03/30/2018

A great pastry brush and perfect for buttering our rolls. The silicone pastry brush is well constructed and its great to keep clean. The best item for our bakery.

Jerry C. on 02/07/2018

Great Brush I am happy to have this in my fleet. I will recommend this brush to anyone and every one. Thank you for a great product.
