The perfect scrubbing tool for pie irons and cast iron cookware is a traditional Japanese Tawashi brush. Made from natural palm fibers that are tightly wound together to form a strong yet gentle brush that removes stuck on food particles without taking affecting your seasoned iron.

In addition to cleaning pie irons, we find that the Tawashi brush works great for scrubbing off surface rust on that pie iron that you left outside in the rain. Just give it a scrub with some soapy water and it comes right off and ready to re-season.  

We love the Tawashi brush and how such a seemingly simple item can work so well with cast iron. They’re also super handy around the campsite. Use to clean cutting boards, pots, pans and as a vegetable scrubber. We also keep one near the grill just to scrape off grime on the grill grate before cooking.
Since the brushes are made from natural, biodegradable palm fibers they can be used over and over again. Just rinse off and allow to dry.  Under normal use you should refresh it once a month by giving it a quick bath of hot water and vinegar.

The Tawashi brush we sell at pieiron.com is made by the Kamenoko company that has been hand making them in the same traditional way since 1907.

Great Combo

I used the scrubbing brush to remove rust from my pie iron. It worked like a charm. I have the brush hanging from the hook above my sink and my wife found it useful to clean dishes. It is an awkward design, but it does the job well and it small to carry with. You can compare to metal sponge I had before. This is better, keeps its shape, made of natural fibers and will last.
