GS in this case (so far) they have worked just fine.

I've even worked seasoned butter into the bristles and brushed it on salmon towards the end as a finishing touch.

If they really are that heat resistant, it would be cool to see a stiffer version for cleaning porcelain grates. Kind of like the plastic bristle brushes you use for washing dishes.
If it aint broke, Break it!
Then rebuild it better.

YB,
Speaking of brushes, have you tried these silicone ones. They’re heat proof up to 625 degrees and they’re so easy to clean: http://www.alltvstuff.com/beb1.html


The web site says they can withstand up to 562 degrees. My grate temp is higher than that when I oil my grates. Back to the paper towel.

If you don't like the food, have more wine

I thought of that but is that the ambient heat of the grill area, or the actual heat of theburners. Either way would the be instantaneous melting at their max temp or only after prolonged use. I don't know the ansewrs.

Either way I'm thinking that they would be great for basting purposes!

I wasn't considering them for oiling purposes.

They do a great job with thick or thin sauces and clean-up is breeze.

The also don't waste a lot of sauce by holding it in their bristles.

I don’t know if that’s a typo on the web site? But the place I bought them from claimed that they withstand temp up to 625. Either way, I agree with YB, they’re mainly used for basting food. Silicon is nothing but sand, it is similar to glass and not plastic. If they do melt, it wouldn’t be like plastic dose. I have not notice any deterioration on the brushes, and I’ve had them for over 6 months.
