Our professional-quality brushes are designed for basting foods as well as oiling or buttering bakeware, waffle irons and griddles. The brushes are also handy for cleaning coffee grinders and spice mills. Made from sterilized natural boar bristles that are neither bleached nor dyed. Bristles are tightly bound to the handles with plastic bands to prevent shedding. Hardwood handles are lacquered for moisture resistance.
