After being really impressed with other Nove products I gave this a try. It's quite a large brush which is great for rinsing as your brush hand doesn't even get wet! The bristles are soft and gentle on dishes, but surprisingly they manage to scrub off almost anything, even burnt on nasties that would previously require a steelo! As with all of the Nove products I've tried, a really good quality item that I enjoy using, and go NZ made!!
