I’m fond of silicone baking products, which are highly heat-resistant and yet have excellent flexibility. You can get everything from oven mitts to cookie sheet liners to baking molds made out of the stuff. But a relatively new product really intrigues me.
The Food Loop looks something like a large plastic cable tie, but it’s made of silicone and, unlike cable ties, easy to remove. One of the sample photos shows the Food Loop holding together the drumsticks of a chicken. Having recently explained, in rather annoying detail, how to truss up a turkey using string, this looks like a marvelously simple alternative. Sure, you’d still have to close up the cavities holding the stuffing, but for tying back the drumsticks, this’d be way easier.
You can pick up a package of 6 from Amazon.com for about $15.
