Having the right basting or pastry brush for every type of dish is essential for all commercial kitchens. This 9-3/4" Silicone Basting Brush (40405) is ideal for use in a variety of different situations. It is made with red silicone bristles, which spread liquid better than most brushes. The red color can be used to indicate that it is safe for high temperatures, up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. This brush is 100% dishwasher safe, and BPA free, making it popular in busy kitchens. The convenient molded-in hook keeps the bristles off the counter while not in use.
