OXO Good Grips Silicone Basting & Pastry Brush
Brush it off or on, with the OXO Silicone Basting & Pastry Brushes
Multiple layers of silicone bristles tackle all tasks.
The OXO Good Grips Silicone Pastry Brush works like a natural bristle brush but with the added conveniences of heat resistance, odor resistance and cleanability. Gaps in the center bristles hold liquid as you transfer from bowl to pastry surface, and tapered outer bristles let you brush delicate pastry with ease. The silicone bristles are heat resistant to 600ºF so you can spread butter in a hot pan, or baste a turkey right out of the oven. The angled Silicone Pastry Brush head keeps bristles off the countertop. Cleanup is easy in the dishwasher, and these bristles won't clump, frizz or retain odors.

Here's a Good Tip!
Use a pastry brush to butter the pan before you bake your next cake. You’ll get better coverage than with a piece of butter in paper—plus, it makes buttering parchment a breeze. Simply swipe the brush over a tablespoon of very soft butter, then onto the pan or paper.

This cleans like a dream in the dishwasher.
This brush may not work well for some things, like brushing chocolate into molds, but it works especially well for brushing on butter and is also good for wetting the sides of a pan you are making candy or caramel in or for brushing on glazes. I am thinking of ordering a few more just like it.
So if you're buying this to use for actual baking/pastry applications, I'd say this is not a good brush for you. However if you're using it for brushing melted butter on a pan, waffle iron, etc. then this brush would be fine for the job.
The downside of silicone brushes is that they don't hold the liquid very well. OXO has solved this by adding a layer of silicone between the bristles that suspends the liquid. The liquid is released by the pressure of brushing the food. Cook's Illustrated likens the technology to the bubble wands we used to play with as kids. Who knew?!!
The brush feels comfortable in my hand. Although it is not as nimble as bristle brushes or my William Bounds Sili Gourment, this brush has replaced the William Bounds Sili Gourmet brushes as my favorite.
This one is okay. I'm not going to call it great, but it's better than most. The photo here is misleading. It looks (keyword is LOOKS) like the "bristles" are much more tiny than that of a usual silicone basting brush. The few that exist are indeed smaller, which is the whole point of a brush being a brush. However, the pictures do not show you the yellow blocks of silicone, with holes in it, in the center. I just uploaded two pictures to demonstrate.
It appears to be an attempt to hold more oil (or basting substance) at a time so as to make basting more even. It's a good idea and I will say that it does help a little, but a real brush still wins over this one.
I will use it since I have nothing better, but I was still a bit disappointed. All in all I would recommend this to others, but with caution that it still isn't the perfect brush.
Good product although I made the mistake of also using it to baste chicken and it retained the odor. I may have to get another one to use exclusively for pastry.
If you've ever used a natural bristle pastry brush, you know this is an item you will have to replace again and again because the bristles will start to clump up over time and retain odors. Not to mention the shedding.
This brush is amazing! For its trial run, I used it to spread olive oil over a chicken I was roasting. This brush picked up all the oil and coated the chicken nicely. Clean-up was also enjoyable as no soaking in soapy water required. This brush cleans up in a jiff.
I'll still keep a regular pastry brush for delicate jobs such as brushing cake molds with chocolate but this new brush will be used for the messier jobs.
PROS: Easier to wash clean and dry. Doesn't stain.
CONS: Wimpy silicone means you have to have a liquid for this brush to work.
