According to the product's website, The Food Loop is: made from silicone; food safe; heat resistant to 675 degrees; non-stick; flexible; reusable; and it can be used on the stovetop, oven, freezer and microwave. You simply slide one end of the cord into the other, pull it to desired tightness - from a 1-inch to a 4-inch loop - and snap it in place. It comes packaged as six "loops" inside a little mesh bag that can be used for storage or for washing them in the dishwasher.
Used for trussing a chicken
We know we're sounding a little bit "As Seen on TV" here, but if you are sick of struggling with kitchen twine, you should really get this thing. We loved it so much that we used it again only a few days after the chicken, when we made a pinwheeled pork roast. Look, ma, no knots!

Yup, The Food Loop is our new favorite gadget. For now anyway.
