This is a great little kitchen tool.
For healthy cooking, this is so useful as obviously, you can make ingredients such as melted butter, margarine or oil go much further with a brush, therefore reducing your precious propoint or calorie useage.
I love it because, unlike bristle or hair brushes, it doesn't 'shed' so there is no chance of finding an unwelcome stray bristle in your food. I think it's more hygienic too as it can be washed in the dishwasher and there are no lingering smells...so the brush can be used for both savoury and sweet dishes.
It's particularly great for applying my garlic and soy concoction onto the aubergines in my RECIPE:'Hasselback' Aubergines post.
These last for years, so although slightly more expensive initially, a good investment for your kitchen utensils collection long-term.
