Do any of you have a silicone pastry brush? I've tried a small paint brush for basting as well as a regular pastry brush and I hate them both. They are so hard to clean and I never feel like they are clean enough. Opinions please!
I've heard of the SilPat that you can use in place of parchment paper on top of your regular cookie sheet. It's supposed to be great. I haven't tried any bakeware made entirely of silicone though; I'm skeptical of it for no reason I can put my finger on.Have any of you ever tried those silicone baking pans or cookie sheets? I was curious about those. I have a silicone mitt that works really well for grabbing hot pans.
