I haven’t actually used these silicone ties, but what with the upcoming holiday roasts and fowl it seems like as good a time as any to check them out. Spiceblog likes them and though I’ve been unable to find them very many places online, here's one source. I've also seen them in some local cookware shops. I have noticed that skin and meat tend to stick to regular kitchen string and these do seem very easy to use. So far, my only experience with silicone kitchen gadgets is the Orka Oven Mitt, which I find unwieldy and useless for any task other than sticking one’s hand in boiling water. Aside from cooking crab and lobster, how often is that necessary? And even then...Anyone out there tried the ties? Have an opinion on this product?
