"Disappointed" star star_border star_border star_border star_border We bought this pastry brush as a replacement for one we bought about 15 years ago. We are disappointed! This brush isn't going to last long. The bristles shed easily, often over the food being brushed. My husband, the 'chef' in our household, doesn't like the non-bristle brushes but I guess we will have to order one & he will have to get used to it. Always a shame when something that does what you want it to do very well eventually has to be discarded only to be replaced by something which doesn't do the job half as well! Mrs Bate - 09 March 2021 support_agent A note from the team Thank you for your review. We’re sorry to hear this has happened but due to the nature of the product some of the bristles may come away from the base. We’d also recommend to hand wash the brush. We’ve been in touch to help further.
