Sparta® Meteor® Pastry/Basting Brush, 3", nylon bristles, molded into-the-handle hook. Molded into-the-handle hook hangs on lip of crocks or other containers to prevent bristle burn, melt, or distortion from resting against hot pan bottoms. Hook elevates bristles off of counter tops to keep bristles clean and to help prevent contamination. Nylon bristles provide excellent chemical resistance. Soft bristles are molded into handle to prevent bacteria harboring air pockets.
