Shopping List: No Fuss Brushes

The November 2004 issue of Gourmet features an article highlighting these space age pastry and basting brushes. Unlike traditional brushes with natural or nylon bristles, which can get gummed up with butter and oil or melt on contact with a hot pan, these ultra-modern brushes have bristles made of silicone, making them easy to clean and resistant to high temperatures. I’ve never tried them, but the arrival of turkey-basting season provides a timely excuse for an equipment upgrade.

Silicone pastry brushes and basting brushes are $14.95 each at Additional shapes and sizes range from $9.99 to $14.99 at
