Unlike conventional basting brushes that never quite come clean, this professional-quality kitchen tool features patent-pending silicone bristles that will never melt, shed, fray, or stain. The basting brush resists heat up to 500 degrees F, and its length provides extra reach over hot coals or into an oven for basting. Channels in the bristle design hold more sauce and capture all marinade ingredients--great for sauces with herbs. For added convenience, the tool's soft-grip handle with a contoured thumb groove fits comfortably in the hand, while a hole at one end facilitates hanging for storage.
In his campaign for accessible, delicious food, Mario Batali is one of the most popular chefs and restaurateurs in the world. Created by Copco and inspired by Batali, the Italian Kitchen line of cookware and tools reflects the famous chef's philosophy that great food needs no gimmicks. Durable, versatile, and high quality, the collection is perfect for the active home chef.
Today's home chef reaches for a silicone basting brush like this one because it's heat-resistant, long lasting, and easy to clean. With a markedly lengthy design to keep fingers out of the flame, this brush features channeled bristles that cup marinade for efficient distribution. Like many Italian Kitchen pieces, it has a Soft Grip handle and a grommet for hanging storage. It is safe in the dishwasher and comes in a variety of colors. Smaller Batali-inspired basting brushes are also available. --Emily Bedard
