Carlisle 21 Key Brushes

Keep your kitchen clean with the help of Carlisle's 21 key brushes! They're easy to use and are designed specifically for foodservice applications.

Well, you know how to cook a gourmet meal, but you don't have a clue what brush to use to clean up afterwards. Our Carlisle 21 key brush guide helps simplify all kitchen clean ups. Keep it clean with Carlisle. Our 21 key brush guide includes everything from pastry brushes to floor care, to general cleaning. Today we're going to talk about three of these essential product groups. Let's start with the basics--hygiene. The first thing you want in the kitchen is a worker with clean hands. 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. Another kitchen basic is the pastry brush. Carlisle's line of Sparta brush products have been around for over 100 years and are known for their quality. 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. If you don't see what you're working for here and want to find out more about our 21 key brushes, contact a Carlisle representative.

    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.
    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.
    This is a very great product! excelent quality, easy handle, resistant, easy to use, high temperature resistant, the best in market, great for any bakery!!!
    We bought this brush for butter on our grill It has held up great to the heat for nearly a year now. you don't have to worry about bristles coming out on your food!
    The pastry brush is excellent. It works well, is silicone ( which is heat resistant, and doesn't absorb odors/flavors), and has a comfortable handle. The price is excellent, especially for the high quality of the brush, and the large 3 inch brush is perfect for bigger jobs like water glazing bread loafs.
    Great brush. Durable and easily cleanable. We use it for many applications from sauces to butters. I always used the bristle brushes but this last much longer from a sanitary standpoint clean better then any bristle brush will. I will continue to buy this product as I need it.
    I honestly do not have anything bad to say about this brush, but i do wish it would spread the ingredient more than it does. Other than that i am happy with it.
    Nice, wide silicone pastry brush. Does the job for applying marinades or glazes to meats and to baked goods. Washes in the dishwasher just fine.
    Got tired of wooden-handled pastry brushes that always seem grimy and past their expiration. This brush works better and lasts longer and was a solid investment for us.
    A really well constructed pastry brush that has a 3" brush span. It is great for buttering biscuits and wiping egg wash on our breads. Easy to clean and really easy to use.
    The silicone "bristles" take some getting used to but I do love the hook on the side that catches on any insert so you're brush doesn't fall in the sauce.
    The Carlisle Spart 3" Silicone Pastry Brush is a handy tool to have in any kitchen. It is very durable and versatile. It does a great job of spreading butter on rolls.
    We ordered these in several different sizes. They are perfect for pastry and our savory courses, preparing and finishing. Be sure to grab a few extra, because once another person uses this tool, you may not get it back.
    I ordered this thinking that silicone would be far superior to fiber brushes, but it has been a bit of a disappointment. It doesn't brush on egg washes as easily as I thought, or hoped, perhaps it will take time to adjust but the cleaning and food safety is still satisfactory, and the amount of liquid it will hold does outrank a straight silicone. Given more time I think I'll enjoy it more, just needs more practice in use, only reason for missing a star is ease of use for first time user of a silicone pastry brush.
