    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.
    I love this product because when i am making my cookies every friday i use this product to cover my cookies with butter. Awesome brush.
    I'm so happy I ordered this brush because it holds the liquid in like butter and egg wash. It's made out of silicone so it the Brussels won't fall off
    This brush works great with butter that is not completely melted. i do wish it was a little wider, and that i could use it with completely melted butter.
    This brush has a very wide head, making it good for full pan items but worse for smaller, individual pastries. The bristle density is also low, and the bristles are pretty large, on an individual basis.
    I need to get the other one too for a match, I wanted to buy this one first before I thought about the other now that I see this quality for that price, I need to find its mate!
    This is a great brush, we use it as a bbq mop and for coating some breads before they go into the oven. Has many uses and is well made.
    We use our pastry brush for buttering the breads. We use texas toast for all our burgers and sandwiches. The brush is great to evenly spread the butter onto the breads and tortillas.
    We use this pastry brush for our flat top griddle. It is adequate for our needs although I think there can be more bristles for better coverage. However, the low price the WebstaurantStore sells it for makes it a great buy!
    We use these brushes daily for our home made pies and they work great. The 3" size is nice to cover an area faster. Easy to clean.
    This is a great basting brush for those big pieces of meat you are needing to cover larger sections at a time! London broil is no problem with this basting brush.
    Main use is for butter, or egg wash, sometimes a soy sauce glaze for fish and chicken, the brush works well, and no bristles to clean!
    We used these brushes for the flat top grill, and while they held up to the heat, the design didn't allow for much even coverage.
    This larger size brush works perfect to brush thick pieces of bread or cakes with butter we use it for corn bread with butter and honey.
    Actually bought these for use with heavy sauces which they are great for but surprisingly they're pretty decent with lighter liquids - bristle might still be better for pastries but this brush isn't too bad and is definitely the best silicone brush I've used.
    we use this to brush butter onto our panini bread before grilling. Doesn't work as well as a bristle brush but is much easier to clean.
    I use this brush all the time... for grilling, not for baking. I make teriyaki sauce and brush it over chicken skewers; it's great It's a lot easier to clean (toss in the dishwasher) than my regular pastry brush, it picks up thick liquids really well, and the hook on the side is so handy for preventing the brush from slipping down.
    This brush is so great. It's durable and has held up well. It is easy to wash and because of the silicone, you don't have to worry about it getting smelly. It's a great buy!
    I love this brush. Normally these silicone brushes are garbage not holding anything. These little bristles and ridges seems to really hold the sauce or whatever you're using. Definitely recommend.
    perfect for brushing bbq sauce over ribs, clean up nice n easy as well. my wife also use it for brushing melted butter on items.
    I purchased the 3" Carlisle silicone pastry brush. This brush is great with the extra wide surface. It cleans easily and the fibers stay firm.
    This pastry brush may not have traditional looks, but it works great. The silicone surface and unique shape of the bristles help hold liquids when basting, but also allows for easy clean up at the end of the day.
    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.
    The idea of silicone pastry brush is brilliant. However, shape of the bristle is a bit odd and it leaves its mark when I brushed top of a homemade bread loaf with some honey. It would be great to be able to get a silicone pastry brush but with just straight bristle.
    Thank you for your feedback! We're sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    This is a must for saucing hot items in the smoker or on the grill. he extra inch allows more coverage of large items. The hook on the side is handy when dealing with deeper containers of sauce.
    These wide brushes are very useful for lots of applications in our kitchen. The silicone is heat proof and easy to clean, and the handles are durable.
    I bought this to put a glaze on bbq ribs and it works great for that task. Its easy to clean and has a hook on the side to hang it on a bowl.
    We recently switched to these brushes and moved away form the standard bristle style brushes. The brushes have 2 major advantages. they clean up very easily and they do not lease small bristles on the food.
    Perfect for brushing on a sauce to your roast, or move butter around your saute pan, excellent heat resistance. Easy to clean, and sturdy in the dishasher
    We should've switched to silicone basting brushes long ago! Our restaurant sells a lot of ribs and after one too many comps for "hairs" that came from the bristle brushes we'd been using, I finally decided to switch to silicone. The brush holds the sauce very well and it stands up to the heat of the grill. We're never going back!
    Durable and useful. It washes well. I've used this for spreading glaze on cakes. I prefer the control of natural bristle brushes better, but the silicone brush is more durable and handles heat and dishwashers much better.
    When you think of 3 inches, you think of something relatively small, but this item was larger than I had imagined. Regardless of that fact, it is very useful and versatile. Just make sure you check the size you need, this is not a petite tool.
    This is an excellent substitution for a boar bristle brush. Its a must have for any type of brush work from washes to spreading BBQ sauce on meats. I love the fact that it doesn't lose bristle like the other brushes available on the market.
    as soon as I received I wanted to test the heat ability and boy was I surprised. Past silicone brush have not held up and this brush does the trick. Grillers love the feel and ease of cleaning the brush at end of shift.
    We got this for several uses and have found that it works best to brush olive oil on our dough before it goes into the cooler to age. I like that it cleans so easily! And did you notice that they hang on the edge of the bowl? Nice!
    Use it to oil bread on a hot griddle. Doesn't hold as much oil as a boar-hair brush, but I can foresee this lasting forever. You can touch this on the hot griddle and it isn't phased in the least bit.
    These brushes are great for basting items while cooking because they silicone holds liquid long enough to properly baste! I like them for egg washing items!!
    I prefer these silicon bristled brushes to traditional brushes any day. They hold barbecue and other sauces very well and cleaning is a breeze. Both the 3" and 2" are great products!
    This brush is SO much better than a traditional bristle brush. The silicone tassels have enough room between them to make cleaning easy. The knobby texture holds the sauce you're brushing on very well. Again, this is WAY better than a tradtional bristle brush.
    Another great Carlisle Brush. This time this silicons Pastry brush will work on all desserts. My mom even tried this product and she wants some for her house. LOL
    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. Love them!
