Best Basting Brushes
Basting is a cooking process that adds liquid to food to increase flavor and keep the food moist during the cooking process. The most often used kitchen tool for this basting process is the basting brush. Basting brushes are typical long handled brushes with bristles made from natural or synthetic materials. Silicone basting brushes are really popular now and most cooks seem to prefer them due to how well they work, how long they last and how easy they are to clean.
Using a basting brush is a great way to control where the basting goes and how much of it gets applied. Most of the time basting brushes are used for glazes, marinades, and sauces but they are also very popular as pastry brushes. When you are looking for good basting brushes to add to your kitchen tools, look for several different sizes so all of your cooking needs can be met. If you’re using silicone bristled brushes, you will not need to have separate brushes for pastry and basting due to the fact that they can be thoroughly cleaned to avoid contamination of any kind.
