Basting brushes are a great tool to have in the kitchen because they can be utilised all year round to baste all kinds of food. In the winter, basting brushes are perfect for roast dinners, pies, pastries and desserts. In the warmer months, a basting brush is essential for coating juicy jerk chickens, sumptuous sirloin steaks and kick-a*s kebabs when cooking up a feast on the barby!
A couple of fine examples include the Jamie Oliver Basting Brush - a pioneering kitchen utensil with special silicone bristles that will not fall out or change shape over time. It also has a mesh in the centre of the brush that is uniquely designed to hold and release sauces easily. We also feature a nice collection of basting brushes from Swiss pioneers, Zyliss, which have a superb feel, a choice of striking colours and, best of all, are very simple to clean.
