Basting Brush

Basting Brush

Basting—brushing, spooning, or pouring liquids, sauces, and marinades over food—is one way to add additional flavor to grilled food and help keep it moist. The classic basting brush is made from boar or plastic bristles, which are potential traps for bacteria because they can’t be cleaned in a dishwasher. To keep the brush clean, you’ll need to dip it in bleach periodically to kill any bacteria. The newest brushes are made of dishwasher-safe silicone, but because they don’t hold as much liquid as natural bristles, you may need to dip more frequently in the basting liquid.
