If you grill and roast food a lot, then you probably keep a baster somewhere in the kitchen. Whether it’s a bulb baster for turkey or a basting brush for barbecue, we highly recommend throwing them all out now in favor of Ototo’s new Mark-Eat baster.
A baster that looks like a highlighter pen, it lets you moisten your steaks, kebabs, and Thanksgiving turkey with the same writing instrument you use to mark passages when reading a textbook. Well, one that looks like it anyway. Seriously, the darn thing looks like it belongs more in a classroom or library than right next to the grill, but that’s exactly what this thing is rigged for.
Aside from the unusual looks, the Ototo Mark-Eat actually performs double-duty as both a basting brush and a bulb baster. I know, there’s no bulb anywhere in sight, but it can suck up any marinate or sauce with a simple squeeze-and-release move, all while dumping it straight onto your target with just another squeeze. You can, of course, also use it like a regular basting brush, dipping onto your barbecue and spreading it onto your steaks like a painter laying strokes on a masterpiece. Or something like that.
