Check out my segment on #GreatDaySA @KENS5 for Back to School Parent Hacks!
One of the most important things about back to school is getting back into the routine of things. When I think about hacks to make my family’s life easier I’m looking for activities that are fast, easy, and cheap.
NEW T-fal Stainless Steel OptiGrill Plus
one-of-a-kind way to grill indoors, featuring a cooking sensor that guarantees a perfectly cooked meal every time. The built-in sensor automatically adapts to the thickness of your food and delivers perfect doneness from rare to well-done for six different programs (burgers, poultry, sandwiches, sausage, red meat and fish). The OptiGrill Plus’ unique temperature gauge allows the savvy home cook to have total control when cooking foods on the manual setting.
- Beat the heat and bugs – no need to go outside in 100+ degree weather!
- Get great grill marks on veggies, meat, and fruits!
- Make sure you let it
