This brush held up to all the abuse i put it through. I used it this past weekend when I was grilling for about 200 people. I like to always keep my grill clean and in between every couple of batches of food, I brush and oil my grates. When I brush, I use one hand to hold the handle and I use the other hand to apply downward pressure. I use a tong to swab the grates with a rag soaked in olive oil and repeat the brushing process. The pressure didn't bend the handle like I thought it would and the bristles cleaned up easily. Clean grates = good grillin.
