The name 'pastry brush' might indicate that this is a kitchen aid just for baking, but this isn’t so. Pastry brushes are one of those versatile tools a kitchen can not do without. Yes, we use pastry brushes to egg wash pastry and bread, both sweet and savory. But, they also have other uses like:
Using a pastry brush to grease a baking tray or pan with oil or butter.
Using it as a basting brush for grilling meats and chicken. Check out our useful longer handle BBQ basting brushes; great for adding that extra sauce or glaze.
A pastry brush is a great way to remove any excess flour, herbs, salt, or sugar from a surface.
They are also convenient in candy-making for wiping down the sides of the pan.
It is always a good idea to have a few different styles and sizes at hand for versatility in the kitchen. You also need different brushes to use with sweet and savory foods.
Buying a natural bristle pastry brush is not your only option. You can find silicone basting brushes in all colors to match the rest of your kitchen in our collection. All the brushes need are soft bristles so they don’t damage the surface you are working on. The bristle in natural bristle pastry brushes is from pigs, which is the reason silicone basting brushes are so popular with Jewish households.
