HIC Roasting s Turkey Baster is an invaluable addition to cooking utensils and chef tools to keep foods moist and juicy. Basting helps foods cook to a golden brown outside and remain moist and juicy inside. It s the ideal cooking technique when foods are exposed to heat for prolonged periods of time, like roasting, grilling, rotisserie, and other slow cooking methods. The Baster tube and injector tip are made from 18/8 stainless steel to be sturdy, durable and resistant to rust. The squeeze bulb is made from heat-resistant silicone (to 500-degrees Fahrenheit) with a safety grip that offers a secure grasp while keeping fingers away from hot contents.
