OXO Good Grips Silicone Basting & Pastry Brush
Every kitchen deserves to have the best utensils and tools to ensure a more hygienic and more efficient preparation of meals. And when it comes to basting and pastry brushes, it would be wise to rely on OXO’s Good Grips. This is a basting and pastry brush that looks like any other, yet behaves like no other. OXO’s culinary magicians made sure that this is the last pastry brush you will ever buy.
What makes the Good Grips exceptional is the unique design of the bristles. Conventional pastry and basting brushes look more like paintbrushes. The Good Grips comes with multiple layers of bristles that give the brush amazing heat resistance. The brush can withstand temperatures of up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. It will never melt or disintegrate when you start basting your grilled foods with your delectable marinade. Regardless of how hot the food can be, the bristles of the Good Grips retain their form and function.
The design of the bristles creates gaps in between individual bristles in the center. This allows liquids to adhere a lot better by virtue of hydrostatic forces. What this means is that the brush will not drip of marinade or any other liquids, unless you are already applying them on your food. Most basting brushes drip their marinade onto the countertop, stovetop, and other surfaces. The Good Grips is never going to do any of that. This translates to cleaner and mess-free cooking.
The outer bristles also taper outwards. When you brush it against pastry, the bristles bend in a more natural manner. This helps preserve the aesthetics of your pastry goodies. After all, no one would like to indulge in baked goodies that look like they were scratched by a chicken.
The overall design of the brush head also means that the bristles will never touch your countertop. It comes with an angled head, allowing you to place a small drip dish underneath the brush head. The handle feels sturdy and solid in the hands. It is comfortable enough that you will not feel strained when you’re baking or basting foods for countless hours.
Cleaning and sanitizing the Good Grips is easy. Pop it in the dishwasher and you’re done. This OXO pastry and basting brush will never clump nor retain the odors of your food or marinade. It is a simple system that helps improve the flavors of your food.
