1" 100 % Pure Bristle Pastry Brush

When cooking with the UPAN and getting the best results we recommend the use of a 1”(24.5mm) natural bristle pastry brush, as they provide the best distribution of butter or oil and fit easily along the channels.

The design of the UPAN utilises all of the surfaces to cook the sausages, so making sure all the surfaces have an even coating when greasing the pan is essential in ensuring no split skins.

This also helps protect the surface of the seasoned cast iron and allows you to use the minimum amount of butter or oil needed.

Once you start using a pastry brush for oils and butter you always seem to find another use from basting chicken to oiling baked potato and roasting vegetables. They are great for getting great coverage with minimum butter or oil. For this reason we recommend buying them in pairs.

How long does it take to cook the sausages?

The UPAN takes between 9-10 minutes to cook the sausages fully once preheated. Watch our video comparing the different results between the UPAN and a traditional cast iron skillet here  Pan vs UPAN

What is a seasoned cast iron coating and what happens if it gets damaged?

The seasoned finish on the UPAN is 100% flaxseed oil that is been heated to 800c. This bonds it to the cast iron to form a natural non-stick coating free off PFAS (poly-fluoroalkyl substances).
