Item #: 27140403

Uniquely engineered to spread thick liquids better than ordinary silicone basting brushes, the Carlisle 4040305 Sparta 1 3/4"W Silicone Bristle Pastry/Basting Brush with Hook is perfect for large and small pastry items alike, including pie crusts and layering dough. Now available with a shorter handle, the 1 3/4" pastry brush is perfect for smaller treats. Thanks to its smaller size, this brush is even useful for other detailed kitchen tasks such as sealing the edges of stuffed pasta or pierogis. The convenient handle allows you to reach corners with precision while the molded hook hangs on the lip of crocks or other containers to keep the brush clean and cool and prevent contamination. The red bristle color indicates that this brush can be used for high heat cooking applications. It withstands temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, making it perfect for high heat situations, from candy making to grilling. The brush's silicone bristles are stain resistant, odor resistant, easy to clean, and they won't fall out, so you can use it over and over without losing the crisp appearance. The Carlisle Sparta 40403 silicone pastry brush features a 1 3/4" brush width and an 8" long handle with an oval loop at the end for easy storage.

brush silicone pastry clean brushes Great bristles little hold easy
    Neat little brush. Does not hold the way bristle would, but it certainly is super easy to clean and I never have to worry about heat and dishwasher ruining my bristles.
    These are perfect for our smaller size pizzas. unlike the brushes with bristles these do not fall out and get in to your food or product
    This is a good little brush. I very much dislike traditional brushes as they bunch up or lose fibers over time. This will last us a while.
    These silicone pastry brushes are amazing! They hold up well to heat and evenly distribute whatever your're using it with! Bonus, the bristles don't fall out like traditional brushes and it's plastic handle is so much easier to clean that a wood-handled brush!
    This is a very well designed brush. The brush is wide enough and the silicone bristles are just the right amount of density and flexibility.
    This is a decent brush, but the structure of the strands is a bit funky. I found it grabbed thicker sauces or sauces with particulates decently, but thinner sauces it may struggle with. For what you are paying though this is a strong contender.
    The silicone bristles on this pastry brush are very high quality and do not rip or tear after multiple uses or washes. The silicone is also very easy to clean.
    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 is a nice silicone brush. Instead of being smooth strands, the bristles are a series of little dots that hold oil or butter so much better than other silicone brushes.
    I really like this silicone brush. I use it to apply marinades to meat. It holds the marinade and applies it very well. This is super easy to clean, which is my favorite part about it. I detest using real brushes for applying marinades because it's impossible to get them 100% clean. I also really like the hook on it, so you can hang it from your bowl. Would purchase this again in a second!
    Great pastry brush. Silicone makes it easier to clean. I've used it with egg washes and glazes with no issues whatsoever so far. It is an essential baking item.
    Use this brush for buttering my garlic bread sticks. The hanging hole at the top of the handle, as well as the little hook on the side near the bottom are great features. Super durable, been using the same two brushes for a couple years. Can definitely give this product the highest recommendation.
    Dishwasher safe!!! I love that feature because most of the time you are using fat along with a pastry brush. The heat of a dishwasher makes these so much easier to clean. The brush coats well, too.
    I was looking for a unit that could go in the dishwasher and opted for this. Used a couple of times for basting and it more glops liquid that painting it on like a real brush.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    I like it that this pastry brush has a hook in the back. The hook hold the brush from slipping, and it locks and stays in place on side of bowl where you rest it.
    I bought the Carlisle Silicone Pastry Brush to replace my old silicone brushes. I really like that this brush is one single piece. (My old silicone brush heads were removable and constantly coming apart every time I used them.) This is a solid brush and perfect for applying melted butter. I also like the fact it is dishwasher-friendly, which makes clean up a breeze!
    Brush works good for putting butter on already cooked items, but not good for putting egg wash on unbaked goods. The quality is good on these would recommend.
    I like the shape of this pastry brush, the handle is much more comfortable than most pastry brushes. But i don't know if i like the bristles, I haven't had a problem with them yet but on soft things like pie dough im always afraid im going to break the dough. The bristles re really easy to clean too which is a plus, there's no egg chunks getting stuck in the hairs.,
    This silicone pastry brush is exactly what I was looking for. Previously I had a brush that shed way too much, but this brush is great and easy to clean.
    These little brushes work pretty good. They hold a lot of butter but it runs off pretty quick. a regular brush might hold less but it stays in better. probably a wash.
    the egg wash sticks to it at first but then frequent re-dipping is necessary. Handles the dishwasher temps fine which is great. I like that the handle has an opening so I can put it on a hook on the wall with spatulas
    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 2 inch brush is perfect for smaller, more precise work like water glazing rolls.
    The Carlisle pastry brush is just what you would expect. It runs through the dishwasher easily. The staff uses it daily and it still has all the brissels.
    I really like the fact that you can clean this better than the bristle brushes. The handle is nice and long. It also has the hole to hang it which is convenient.
    A really nice 2" silicone pastry brush that works great on adding sauce to our chicken on the grill. The bush holds up well against high heat and does a great job.
    The Carlisle Sparta 2" Silicone Pastry Brush is sturdy and durable. It spreads evenly and the bristles don't come off evenly. I would purchase this again.
    This is a great silicone pastry brush. Because it's textured, it holds a lot of sauce and the little feet on the bottom allow you to set it on the counter without making a mess.
    Perfect little tool for drizzling pastries at our small bakery. Good size and works well. The brush end holds up to hot ingredients and is a breeze to clean.
    Great all purpose pastry brush, silicone bristle style is easier to keep clean but don't seem to hold quite as much as a traditional bristled brush. Great price of course!
    We use this to baste avocado oil on chicken and spices on fish and the little brush that has bumps to hold the liquid on so it gets it done quickly! Great that it holds up to heat too so can be used when the fish is hot or chicken is baking!
    This 2 inch silicone pastry brush is pretty nice it's got a nice red silicone brushes to it and I really like the plastic handle with the hook so when you don't feel like just laying it down and making a mess you just hung it on the side of your bowl or whatever your sauces in really like that
    I got silicone brushes for the mere fact that I wouldn’t have to worry about the bristles showing wear and that you can just throw these in the dishwasher for cleaning. This 2” size is perfect for egg-washing edges for crimping, or brushing the tops of small pastries.
    We use this for brushing sauces on bbq, and it works great for that. You might be better off using a natural bristle brush for pastries, but I like that this is a little heat resistant which is good for bbq.
    Work great for pastry and adding sauces to steaks while still on the grill. Definitely recommend for anyone needing to use for egg wash or sauces.
    I love the pot clip that's built into the brush head. It eliminates the mess of a spoon rest and it always stays handy, too.
    This 2" silicone basting brush is perfect to spread the marinade on the steaks. You can use it for BBQ chicken and other foods like fish to keep from drying out while cooking, this high temp brush will help you keep in flavor by constantly applying during cooking.
    This brush is great because it will not lose its bristles into any food it picks up butters very easily so you can brush them evenly.
    Not my favorite Pastry Brush. It is really easy to clean so I like that but it really doesn't hold things like butter like I think it should A little disappointed.
    This brush is perfect for basting our chicken on the grill. It has a little hook on it to attach to edge of a 1/9 size pan.
    Wow, these brushes are game changers. I'm not sure how long they've been around for, but our dishwashers certainly are happier simply running these through the machine rather than the work required to get stuff out of the old school brushes. Very high quality and little change in usability over the old school brush. Only struggle is very thin substances like olive oil, so it will require a few more strokes, but overall great!
    This is my second silicone pastry brush, and I love it just as much. You can't really go wrong with silicone products, and this gets the job done very well.
    Great butter brush for breeds. This brush is made of silicone bristles and so easy to clean. I recommend this for its ease of clean.
    Way easier to clean properly than the standard bristle ones, but they don't hold a lot of whatever you're brushing on, so my staff tend to want to use the bristle ones despite the cleaning.
    I purchased the 2" Carlisle silicone pastry brush model #27140403. It is sturdy and easy to clean and the fibers are firm without falling apart.
    Really like the design. There's little knobs on the silicone bristles that help hold oil, sauce, etc. Also has two knobs on the white part to help prop up the brush and prevent it from touching the counter when it's not being used.
    This is a great pastry brush that can be cleaned in the dishwasher. I use it for more than just pastry...It is also great for basting marinade on meat for the grill. Good price, too!
    The bristles on the silicone brush or sicker than a lot of the other silicone brushes that I had but it works really well with carrying the whatever you are needing baste like butter or egg wash. I do recommend it for any pastry brush needs
    These are definitely not the cheap ones you find in stores. Great quality, I love the puddle handle hook for pots and pans. The silicone makes it super easy to clean.
    Needed a pastry brush but not with regular bristles due to safety reasons. Carlisle makes good quality brushes and this has a hook to hold to sides of things.
    No more nylon bristles in the food! These work great for egg wash for baked goods, buttering toast, and saucing grilled items on the broiler.
    This brush is much easier to clean than other pastry brushes I have had in the past. As others have said, it works better with more viscous substances.
    These are very useful brushes. Hold up well to being used on hot surfaces and product, and are very easy to clean. The best brushes available from this site IMO.
    Very good brush. Bought it 5 months ago and have not had any problems yet. The bristles are a little bit too course for egg washes like others have said but works very well with things like BBQ sauce. The hook on the handle is awesome for preventing it to fall in the bowl! Or just hanging up to dry.
    The Carlisle 40403 2" Silicone Pastry Brush is a must have if you are preparing pastries, brushing them with eggwash- constantly. I have a bunch of these and especially this brand is great!
    This is a great pastry brush with one caveat. I like it's little ribbed fingers - they pick up plenty of liquid product. The caveat is that this works better with more viscous liquids. Thinner liquids, like eqq wash, need a brush with thinner strands. But when used with a nice thick sauce (like a fruit sauce), this thing works great. It's also well suited for BBQ sauces. Because it's made of silicone and plastic, it cleans up very well and doesn't pose the potential food safety issues that come with bristled brushes with wood handles.
    I just love silicone pastry brushes and would highly recommend either in commercial setting or residential setting. They can easily be tossed inthe dish washer and also have a long lifespan.
    Sturdy brush, it works best for applying something that is a bit more substantial. I tried using this with egg wash and was disappointed by the results.
    This is great for brushing egg wash on a loaf of bread and you don't have to worry about bristles falling out, like with regular pastry brushes. I've even used it to brush marinade on chicken in the broiler, and then washed it in the dishwasher.
    Little hook very handy to keep brush from falling into product and getting handle dirty. Brush also works great to lightly coat hot Teflon pans.
    Loooove these brushes. There are no loose hairs that can get into your food with these brushes! So much easier to clean and dry as well.
    Love this silicone pastry brush. We place it in a metal container with melted butter on the griddle to easily butter toast. Just make sure the bottom of the brush doesn't touch the container (if it's sitting on the grill) cause it will melt if the temp gets over 400 degrees, use the hook to hook it to the side of the container.
    I have used this for everything from grilling with marinades to a light egg wash on baked goods. It holds liquid without spilling or dripping creating a huge mess, while evenly distributing the liquid. Will buy more!
    These are much easier to clean than their nylon counterparts. That being said, they don't "grip" as much of the liquids that you may need it to (say if it's a thin liquid, like olive oil). It works much better in a heated liquid application, and I do love the little hook! Much more sanitary.
    I am a big fan of silicone brushes. They work great and they are much easier to clean than the traditional ones. Comes at a great price.
    the brush is very well made unfortunately i bought them to use with cakes and simple syrup and they don't work for this but other than that i like them now that I'm using them forBBQ
    I have purchased a couple of the silicone pastry brushes. They are a good quality, are very sturdy and easy to clean.. I highly recommend them.
    I like the silicone pastry brushes, better than the nylon ones. The customers won't find anything they shouldn't on their pastry T it is also dishwasher safe and last forever.
    Love this Silicone Pastry Brush. I use it on many of my pastries. The coverage is good and it cleans up nice and dries quickly.
    Well constructed product that gets the job done. Not quite as precise as traditional pastry brushes, but they are easier to clean, they do not shed bristles, and they do work. Good product.
    Carlisle 40403 2" Silicone Pastry Brush. I use this for basting all types of meat and breads. I know it's for pastry, but it works wonderfully for all liquids!
    I have used these brushes in my stores for quite some time with great success. In fact, I liked these products so much I decided to buy a set for use in my own house.
    These brushes hold sauces and rubs much better than traditional bristle brushes, and they are much, much easier to clean. We don't use the bristle brushes anymore.
    This is a great high heat pastry brush. It works great for basting roasting meats. Also nice for brushing hot sauces on various items. Deffinetly worth the couple of bucks.
    Wow. What a great basting brush for high temperature baking or grilling. It holds and spreads heavy sauces like barbecue sauce easily on ribs or brisket. I've also basted turkeys with it and slathered melted butter on hot loaves of bread with it. It is so easy to clean up with hot water, or I also just throw it in the dishwasher when I'm busy. This is a good quality, good value brush.
    This is a very handy tool to have in my kitchen when baking pastry. I am able to get even coverage when washing my pastries. It helps provide the golden color that we love on our baked goods.
    It is great product, very competitive price. I use this for bbq, it is heat resistance, and also very durable. I definitely will buy more and highly recommend.
    good price, heat resistant, sturdy, doesn't work as well as other hair brush because doesn't pack enough hair to carry liquid. but overall i would recommend this product to others because it was cheap.
    These silicone brushes are the best. We comped a few meals and really struggled finding a brush that would withstand sticky barbecue sauce and a hot grill. These are the only ones that have ever worked. This size is a little small. Go for the 3" one.
