The best for oiling my cast iron - beautiful construction and just works!
on 29 January 2013
I love Le Creuset pots and pans and also I love Lodge cast iron. I needed something capable of handling the oiling of extremely hot cast iron without me doing myself an injury or the brush disintegrating with the temperature of the cast iron. As I love Le Creuset anyway, thought I'd give this professional quality basting brush a go.
Superb! The best, forget the rest is my opinion. Might cost a few pounds more than cheaper brands but you get what you pay for in cookware as you do in all things.
Handled the oiling of my cast iron skillet at top temperature effortlessly, also I've used it to baste a chicken with hot fat. The bristles are cleverly designed to collect and 'hold' the oil so it ends up where you want it to, not all over the kitchen. Spreads easily and also washes easily with hot soapy water later when you have finished with it. It also looks so nice that I didn't want to just sit it in a drawer so I threaded a piece of string through the hole at the end of the handle and made my own string handing handle so I could hang it from a hook on the kitchen wall. Looks pretty and also its handy and just there for when I want it.
I'll use this to care for (oil that patina baby!) all my precious cast iron cookware, for basting chicken and turkeys and any number of other uses.
Invaluable and excellent value for money.
