Useful Kitchen Utensils - Basting Brush

A basting brush is designed to assist cooks with basting, adding liquid to food for flavor and to help keep it moist. The classic basting brush is made from a wooden handle and boar or plastic bristles. Some cooks complain that these brushes tend to hold stains, odors, and flavors, however, and they are also potential bacteria traps, since the design often includes nooks and crannies. The natural fibers and wood should not be cleaned in a dishwasher. To keep this type of brush sanitary, it should be periodically dipped in bleach to kill potential organisms. A baster is designed to be heat resistant so that it can be used in and around ovens and grills. The bristles can be natural or synthetic, with most cooks preferring synthetic ones, especially those made from silicone. Silicone brushes can be washed in the dishwasher.
