While most of our family and friends are breaking out their winter clothes and saying goodbye to their grills for awhile, here in Arizona we are moving into our weather “sweet spot.” If you have had your fill of burgers and ribs, you can now celebrate the flavors of fall on the grill with a little hep from a COOKINA Reusable Grilling Sheet.
Think of all of the fabulous fall bounty that can be elevated when grilled: peaches, squash or Brussels sprouts.

The sheets are non-stick, easy-to-clean and provide a tool for healthy grilling and a headache-free cooking experience.

You are still able to achieve those coveted grill marks on your foods. The sheets are 100% non-stick, PFOA free, reusable, reversible, easy to clean and can be cut to size and will only cost you $14.99.
