Dear Barbara: I like using a basting or pastry brush during grilling season for meats and other foods. I hate the fact that the bristles come off on the food. I have tried replacing the brushes with new ones, but still have the same problem. — Adrianna from Lockeford
Dear Adrianna: I was having the same problem when I noticed on TV that some of the chefs were using silicone basting brushes. It seemed like they wouldn’t hold enough sauce, but they do! I couldn’t be without mine now. The one I use is by deXas, but there are many other brands. You will never again have to worry about having bristles getting stuck to the food.
