To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I replaced my old wood and nylon brush with this silicone brush. I wish I had done so years ago. The silicone brush smears oil evenly, and washes and dries reasonably well (oil does seem to adhere to it so I have to wash it numerous times to get the oil out of the bristles). It does not alter the flavour of food (not that I can tell, anyway) and does not smell once clean, in the same way that the wood brush could. I have not washed it in a dishwasher; I have only handwashed with washing-up liquid, but I suspect that it would be fine inside a dishwaswer.
