My first thought was the handle is not going to hold up because it's plastic. It's 18" long which is a good length for cleaning your grill. If you're trying to clean it right after everything is cooked (which is the perfect time so what's left behind doesn't get caked on) you're able to use the brush without getting burned. We have been using it for about a month and have grilled weekly. We've used it to clean the grill after every dinner and the brush is actually holding up very well. We've even tried putting pressure on it while cleaning and it hasn't broken. So I have to say that this is a very sturdy brush.
I love that this grill brush comes with the bristle part and the scraper part. It really comes in handy when you have those hard to remove chunks of BBQ sauce that has baked on to the grill. I thought the clean up of the brush would get pretty messy too since it's that way with our other brush but it was super easy to clean. I just ran a sink full of hot soapy water and let it soak for about fifteen minutes and then used a greenie to remove what was left over. It looked as good as new.
The one thing about our old brush was the bristles didn't stand up to the test of time. They started bending and getting matted down. That hasn't happened with this brush so far. Like I said, I've used it for about a month. After about six months, I will come back and update on how the brush is doing.
Another thing really quick before I wrap up this review. When you order the BBQ brush, you get a book of BBQ recipes. This recipe book is all inclusive. It starts out by telling you what every great griller needs in their "toolbox". There are recipes for Cry Baby Wings, Shredded BBQ Wings, Grilled Stuffed Zucchini and even a recipe for Apple Salad. That's just to name a few. I know I was curious when I noticed an ebook came with it so I figured that would let you know a little bit of what was in it.
Bottom line? We loved it and would buy it again.
I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
