It’s important to keep certain meats moist throughout the cooking process. One of the easiest ways to get this done is with a little help from the Carlisle 12 inch 20 degrees Sparta® Flat Brush (4037000). The two inch wide epoxy bristles easily pick up a portion of the liquid or sauce, making it easy to cover a large surface in a short amount of time. Water resistant and double-boiled, the Carlisle - 4037000 - 12 inch 20 degrees Sparta® Flat Brush is something that every chef needs to have on hand at all times. The lacquered hardwood handle adds a little bit of appeal to the overall look of this basting brush.
