I've not given it 5 stars yet, as it's one of those 'time will tell'products. It arrived on time, in good nick,and fairly reasonably priced considering it's rather more than just a brush. Instead of bristles it has thickish rods of rubbery silicone plastic and some perforated sheets of the same stuff buried in the 'bristles'( see other reviewers kindly provided pics). It'll pick up just the same amount of oil,milk,flour, or anything else your old brush did,and put it where you want it.It's supposed to cope with hot oil without damage.I havn't really tested this yet, but it's definately dishwasher safe, so as long as your oils not bubbling and smoking like it's ready to blow, you should be o.k. The angled shape does as advertised, keeping the contents of the bristles off your work surface unless the brush is really loaded.In short,it's just the tool for the job, making all the old wood, bristle, and nylon jobs look rubbish.Get one!Incidentally,just after the product arrived, one of our chairs needed some fixing, and the redundant wood and bristle brush which we'd only used once before it started to go deciduous, got used as a glue brush. It's now exiled to the shed where it belongs. Edit:- 5 months later, 2 of the inner yellow bristles (one each side)have fallen off, dunno why but they're easy to spot before they get in your cooking, and there's still plenty left. If it lasts the year I'll be quite happy. Seemingly simple, commonplace little gadgets like this add just as much to your cooking convenience and pleasure as a drawer full of fancy knives or a food processer so long as they're done right.
