Pastry brush

Glazing, basting, brushing! Meet the one kitchen tool which will help you out in various tasks: The pastry brush/basting brush. It is a kitchen utensil made up of natural or silicone bristles used in pastry preparations and is usually used to apply a glossy brown finish to pastries or to add the magic finishing touch to your preparations. Also known as the food brush or kitchen brush, this cooking utensil can also be used as a spatula for topping barbecue sauce or uniformly spreading butter, oil or any other seasoning in your cake pans, baking trays and salted or sweetened preparations.

Silicone basting brush or natural bristle food brush: finding the best pastry brush is a tough business. How to choose wisely among these clever kitchen utensils?

The pastry brushes and brush set presented by AZ Boutique are professional quality baking and basting brushes that will accompany you in the kitchen for many years. The quality of a good brush is the ability not to lose their bristles and manufacturing materials’ quality over time. A brush with strong bristles gives a much better result. The brushes sell on our website are brushes with natural fibre bristles and nylon fibres. There is not a big difference between these two materials. Brushes with nylon fibre allow easy washing and faster drying than natural fibres. However, natural fibre brushes, unlike nylon, do not harden over time and sometimes even become softer. It is not necessary to choose between the two materials because both types of brushes are equally effective, and both are used in professional kitchens.

Like the kitchen whisk, it is important to have good grips on the handle of the kitchen brush in order to obtain a perfect result without the task being cumbersome. We offer wooden, silicone and plastic handles. The wooden handles are less slippery. If the work is delicate, be careful not to drop the brush on the cake! It is also a heat resistant material that ensures a long-lasting use. Quite often the wood used is a reusable material, so its use contributes to the protection of the environment.

Then we have the heat-resistant silicone basting brush. Silicone is a material that has become a must for many cooks: silicone mould, wringer, peeler, silicone cutting board, silicone spatula/scraper, silicone ladle, and the list is quite long! Silicone brushes are flexible and non-stick kitchen utensils. You can spread butter in a better way with a silicone brush. The advantage of a silicone brush is that it is an easy to clean material. In addition, it is a very modern food brush that stands out from other pastry brushes as it may come in many colours.

Finally, we also offer pastry brushes with plastic handles. Knowing that it is food plastic material, the risk of food contamination is reduced. It is a hygienic material that is easy to clean and totally dishwasher safe.

Culinary ideas using basting brushes/ food brush

To brown your pastries and other sweet treats (such as the famous cream puff pastry), simply dip the brush in a marinade of beaten egg (or yolks only). Avoid immersing the brush entirely in the marinade so as not to have an excess of liquid, usually the brush in the kitchen helps to bring a beautiful shine to the preparation of croissant, pies or even brioches.

It can also be used to decorate, apply icing, coat a preparation and even grease a dish using various elements such as egg yolk, butter, oil or even sauces. It's really the final touch that makes all the difference! The golden look of a cake makes you want to eat it right away. So, put on your kitchen apron quickly, take your pastry brushes and create masterpieces worthy of the great chefs.
