Customer Q&A Ask 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.

Keep it clean with Carlisle. Our 21 key brush guide includes everything from pastry brushes to floor care, to general cleaning.

The Sparta hand and nail brush is the industry standard. Its ergonomic design is easy to use. The long side bristles clean fingernails and knuckles and the short, stiff center bristles clean under the fingernails. You can even get it with a cord for hanging near sinks.

The Sparta Chef series and Sparta Media pastry brushes are designed specially for foodservice use. Chef series brushes have epoxy set bristles to eliminate food traps. The Sparta Media brush line have bristles molded into the handle to prevent contamination. Both are available with boar or nylon bristles for hot and cold applications. Finally, let's get that broiler clean. Carlisle's broiler master is the workhorse of the industry. It features a specially-treated wooden head with two-sided stainless bristles. Broiler master has a metal scraper on the end for power scraping burned off food build up. That's the highlights of our 21 key brush guide, the key to maintaining a clean kitchen. Carlisle's Sparta brush line includes thousands of brooms, brushes, mops, squeegees, and specialty brushes.

    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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!
    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.
    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.
    I use these every day for brushing hand pies! They work great and I much prefer these to traditional brushes. They don't come apart and they are very easy to clean.
    I like this brush so far. It holds thin basting liquids very well. I've put it in the home dishwasher a few times and it has gotten clean even though it was covered in greasy, grill bits.
