DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME arrives on
March 8, and spring follows on March 20,
so, naturally, thoughts are turning to garden parties and outdoor barbecues. At least
for me. Costco has a grill that would make
a welcome addition to anyone’s backyard
or patio. The KitchenAid Five Burner Grill
looks great and cooks even better.
First, the stainless steel construction
makes it stylish and solid. KitchenAid grills
sold by other retailers use lower grades of
stainless steel in the construction of the
lid, control panels and doors. The stain-
less steel components on this grill are AISI
304 grade, providing the highest corrosion
resistance available on an outdoor grill.
The four individually controlled main
burners each rock 10,000 BTUs (British
thermal units) and a searing side burner
puts out 15,000 BTUs. The grill provides
plenty of room, too, with almost 700 square
inches of total cooking surface.
The firebox and the flame tamers
are porcelain-enameled. Why? Porcelain-enameled steel increases corrosion resistance, which helps to keep your grill in
tiptop shape, even in harsh weather, and
helps to retain and radiate high heat.
The grill comes ready for liquid propane fuel, but a conversion kit (available
on Costco.com) for natural gas can be
purchased separately. But the grill can be
found only at Costco warehouses. It’s a
great value when you consider the quality,
cooking performance and endurance.

$679.99 (price varies based on location and
shipping costs). Item #639646. Available

THE DEMAND FOR organic foods is growing
rapidly, but sometimes you just can’t find—or
afford—all of the fruits, vegetables and herbs
you’re looking for to feed your family. Growing
your own organic garden guarantees you the
produce you want, and Costco has just the soil
for this task.
Miracle-Gro Organic Choice Moisture
Control Potting Mix with Compost, which is
exclusive to Costco, contains the optimal mix
of ingredients—including sphagnum peat
moss, coir and yucca—to provide the nutrition, water retention and aeration required for
Sphagnum peat moss is well known for
regulating moisture. Super-absorbent coir,
made from finely ground coconut husks, and
ground yucca augment the sphagnum peat
moss for better moisture retention in dry
conditions. These special ingredients protect
against over- and underwatering.
Another ingredient that helps this
Miracle-Gro product really excel is compost,
a rich organic material that improves the
chemical, physical and biological characteristics of the soil. The majority of the compost
in this potting mix comes from yard waste,
including leaves and grass clippings that are
diverted from landfills, and it goes through a
screening process to make sure that it meets
the highest standards.
The soil feeds plants for up to two months
without the need for supplemental fertilizer.
This potting mix enables you to conveniently provide your family with great-tasting
homegrown food. The fun and the pride you’ll
derive from growing and harvesting your own
crops are a bonus. At Costco, a 55-quart bag of
this wonder soil costs only $9.99.
