Basting Brushes

Basting brushes are the paintbrushes of the culinary world, but instead of smearing a canvas with vivid imagery and striking colors, they paint your food with exquisite flavor. Like artists, chefs own an extensive collection of basting brushes depending on their medium. Silicone brushes are commonly associated with meat and poultry, whereas boar bristle brushes work more efficiently when dipped in fine sauces and glazes. Parts Town carries a chef’s dream selection of basting brushes in our extensive online catalog for you to peruse and examine at your leisure.

Silicone Basting Brushes

Meats, vegetables, seafood and pastries all need to be cured with flavor by adding sauces, marinades and glazes. However, certain brushes prove more useful for different dishes. That’s why Parts Town carries a diverse range of basting brushes:

  • BBQ Basting Brushes
  • Vegetable Brushes 
  • Pastry Brushes
  • Grilling Brushes 

Whether you're an at-home or professional cook, you’ll need a basting brush to help coat your vegetables in oil, grease the bottom of pans and marinate meat. But what brushes are best for preparing BBQ ribs vs. glazing a fruit tart? Small brushes with boar bristles are better equipped for detailing delicate food, such as fruit and dough, whereas larger brushes are more efficient at coating large slabs of meat. 

Heat also makes a difference in which basting brush you’ll select from the drawer. If you need to slap on more flavoring after pulling meat off the grill, be sure you use heat-resistant silicone or Teflon basting brush. The handle construction is also a deciding factor when it comes to choosing the best basting brush. Plastic provides a sturdy grip, is extra durable and easier to clean. However, wood-basting brushes are said to be more comfortable for longer jobs.
