I replaced my old, wooden, hairy bristled basting brush with this silicone version and am SO HAPPY! The wood of my old one was getting soft (and I'm sure not too hygienic) but most irritating was the hairs it used to drop in my melted butter or marinade. No more! Silicone bristles of dreams and super easy to clean in hot soapy water. Also does not retain "flavours". Win, win, win!
I would recommend this product to a friend.
