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 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.
1) it goes in the dishwasher- Yay! ( don't you hate trying to get the gunk out of your regular brush?)
2) I can actually use it to brush oil on to a hot iron skillet without it melting
3) the oversized soft handle feels nice in my sore hands
The only thing that might be a drawback is the size of the "bristles". It doesn't do quite as good as a job as regular bristles, but a second pass usually remedies this.
The unique feature of this brush is the middle row of "bristles"--three 1/4-inch-wide flaps with four large holes in each one. It is these holes that "hold liquid like a bubble wand. It easily trapped watery egg wash, was delicate enough to paint pastry without damage, and brushed barbecue sauce evenly and thickly. Its handle felt comfortable and secure; the angled head helped reach tight spots and kept sauce off the counter when we set it down." (from America's Test Kitchen review.)
This story is of course mere conjecture, but it is a reasonable explanation for the thought that went into the basic design of this OXO pastry brush. Over the years I've used many sorts of wretched brushes to slather glaze on my loaves of bread, but now that I have this OXO brush I feel like I am on the cutting edge of science whenever I use it. The OXO brush holds an amazing amount of whatever liquid or goo that you are spreading. It spreads the goo around without disturbing even a delicate surface. Best of all, it cleans up easily under hot water or even in a dishwasher.
Hats off to those people who observe something interesting... and then think up a useful purpose for 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.
