Thread: Pastry Brush?

    Default Pastry Brush?

    I think I have searched EVERYWHERE.

    What I am looking for is the old type, like my Mom and both grandmothers
    used.

    It had a thick twisted wire handle, with a loop large enough for my thumb
    to go through on the end opposite the bristle end. The bristle end is the
    important part. The bristles were stiff enough to get into corners of pans
    and into the smaller indentations of ornate mold type pans. It wasn't so
    stiff that it would ruin the tops of pastry when it was used for it's
    originally intended purpose.

    It was NOT one of those limber, practically useless silicone rubber things
    that every place in the world sells today. It was NOT a small, softer
    bristled brush resembling a natural bristle paint brush that you might use
    for painting the rungs on the back of your chairs.

    If anyone has a link to such a thing, I would really appreciate it. I
    really don't want to go through Christmas baking like I did on Thanksgiving
    and in previous years.

    Like I said, I think I have searched everywhere, this is hoping that I
    might have missed a place or two.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you looked in hardware stores in the paint department? A very
    wide variety of paint brushes are made for various purposes. I'm sure
    you could find one to suit your needs.

    That sounds more like an old fashioned basting brush-the type often used
    on poultry during roasting. Try looking in the grilling section of your
    local hardware store.

    Did you actually read my post? I said that I did NOT want a paint brush.

    GO back to bashing google gropes. At least you are in your own environment
    there.

    OK, maybe I'm using the wrong term here, that makes more sense because you
    really did have to be careful when brushing uncooked pastries, but pastry
    brush was what Mom and both Grandmoms called it.

    Yes, I have looked at grilling departments and @ BBQ/grilling stores and
    all they have is the silicone ones and the ones that can be bought in the
    paint department for much less.

    Thanks. I am off to Google Search (not to be confused with google gropes)
    to look for "basting brushes".

    will report back with any success and pictures if successful

    Yes I read your post. I don't think there is a substantial difference
    between a paint and pastry brush, except that a pastry brush is one
    type of paint brush among many types. My point was with the extremely
    wide variety of paint brushes made for various purposes, I'd bet you
    could find one to suit your preference.

    Or are you hung up/fixated on the label "pastry brush"?

    Oh notbob, that will not suit nonnymouse at all, who specifically said
    "...with a loop large enough for my thumb
    to go through on the end opposite the bristle end"!

    Wait a minute, those little holes in the handle may fit a mouse
    thumb!!

    They don't make 'em anymore. Some of the old stuff was the best but no
    longer available for lack of demand or the "better" way of doing things.
    If you find an old one on Ebay or the like, it will probably be nice and
    rancid with brittle bristles if any.

    The type of brush you are looking for probably will be found with the
    barbecue tools - that's where mine came from - just as you described,
    actually.

    I know exactly what you are describing. My mother used to get them as free
    gifts when she bought items from the Fuller Brush door-to-door salesman. I
    still have a couple of hers. They are great! So, you might be able to find
    one if you do a search for pastry brush and attach Fuller Brush to your
    search.
