Brush on the flavor.

Basting brushes are essential tools for all kinds of kitchen tasks, from baking to barbecuing, but cleaning out the bristles can be a pain. Not so with these silicone wonders, which are dishwasher-safe and heat-resistant to 550°F. They have a lil’ secret hidden inside the bristles, too—perforated flaps that capture generous amounts of liquid so you don’t have to keep reapplying it. This set comes with two brushes: a long one to keep you away from the heat (perfect for grilling), plus a smaller, everyday one that also happens to be right-sized for little chefs.
