I sell Handmade Artisan Pottery ware made in America with American manufactured supplies. I sell dishes, bowls and oven safe bake ware and can supply a fact data sheet from the American manufacturing company for clay and glaze information that will state what is in the product it and if it is safe for food storage. Other American Potters can supply this information too.

Pyrex and Anchor Hocking glass bakeware, Lodge Logic pre-seasoned and unseasoned black cast iron cookware, Corelle Livingware and other Corelle lines made of Vitrelle (the mugs are imported stoneware), CorningWare SimplyLite Vitrelle bakeware, Columbian Home Products Graniteware, Homer Laughlin Fiesta Ware, Range Kleen ovenware.

Two big Hispanic specialty cookware makers, Tremontina and Imusa make some of their cookware in the USA, and it seems EVERY tortilla warmer you find at Mexican restaurants are made in the USA.

For American-made CorningWare Pyroceram and VISIONS amber glass-ceramic cookware, look into online dealers like www.classickitchensandmore.com. You can buy new CorningWare Pyroceram and VISIONS at www.shopworldkitchen.com but it's now made in France with Pyrex lids from the USA.

It's out there. You just gotta know where to look. Expect frequent updates. :)

The more expensive pieces that All Clad sells are made in America, but some of the lower-end pieces are made in China. You just have to check the box before purchasing.

From All-Clad's FAQs:

14. Is All-Clad made in the USA?

All-Clad has a policy of manufacturing all of its bonded cookware in the USA. This means that it purchases its metals only from US suppliers, and bonds them at its own rolling mill on-site in Canonsburg PA, and then forms them at the same location into high performance cooking vessels.



All-Clad is the originator of bonded cookware technology and is committed to investing in bonded cookware manufacture solely in the USA.



There are areas in which All-Clad does not manufacture in the USA. These are:



1. Where the bonding of metals is not required for superior cooking performance (E.g. tools, accessories)
2. On regular non-bonded components where making in the USA would add to the retail price but not generally to performance (E.g. loop handles)
3. Where manufacturing constraints exist at the Canonsburg plant (E.g electrical kitchen appliances)

All-Clad's tools, accessories (including the roaster combo's), lids or electrical kitchen appliances, are manufactured by select partners overseas qualified carefully by All-Clad with highest quality specifications.

All-Clad Metalcrafters LLC has a strict policy of selecting and working with reputable and responsible suppliers that strive to consistently manufacture materials, components and products worthy of the All-Clad brand name, in addition to being in total compliance with applicable environmental and product composition standards.

All-Clad items manufactured overseas are subjected to, not only, strict U.S. Food & Drug Administration testing; but also stringent third party testing to ensure products are free of lead or any other contaminations. All-Clad maintains its policy of providing consumers with safe, high-quality products that are backed by a lifetime warranty.

A surprising number of kitchen gadgets sold at Williams-Sonoma and Crate & Barrel stores are made in the USA. They're not as cheap (and most likely not as cheaply made) as the Chinese stuff but if you're willing to make a trip to the Galleria (or in our case, Victoria Gardens) instead of WalTargMart for kitchen gadgets, you know where to find them. Their websites give the country of origin for everything and it looks like Swing-A-Way can openers are being made in the USA again.

Vollrath cookware - available at resturant supply stores is made in USA.
Lodge cast iron is made in USA, but I believe that their enamel coated stuff is made overseas.
Cutco cutlery is made in USA.
Tattler reusable canning lids are made in USA.
Several websites list made in USA products - Google search "made in USA".

In October 2008, Coast Products USA opened its doors and began a new chapter of a story that started in 1946 with an all brass fill valve branded the "Gem". It was the first of twenty-one generations to be developed by the Coast Foundry and Manufacturing Company of Pomona, California. Known as the innovators of the industry, these fill and flush valve solutions were developed individually for different toilet manufacturers from around the world. In the 65+ years since, over 500,000,000 of our fill valves, flush valves, and flappers have been purchased by both OE manufacturers and consumers. (Records from 1990-Present). Our 1B1TM fill valve line, which includes the Mark II, III, IV, 1B1X, and 1B1 Master, as well as the Ultra BlueTM Coast Flapper line, are trademarks of Coast Products and continue to be found in plumber's toolkits around the world.

The original Coast Foundry was forced into bankruptcy at the peak of the 2008 recession. Coast Products USA was formed to purchase the company at auction and thus obtained patent rights, molds, and assembly equipment for all products of the Coast lineup. We were lucky enough to retain a number of the best and most experienced management and workforce from the former Coast Foundry, to ensure the the products would be made as they always have been. In October 2008, we began manufacturing and assembling the same high quality products to the same standards. Since then, we've begun a process of vertical integration, allowing us to innovate faster at a lower cost, but never at the cost of quality.

Currently, Coast Products has the largest selection of toilet trim components to choose from in the industry. The Coast line-up includes 112 different fill and flush valve solutions for toilets around the world, making Coast the plumbers' most reliable, go-to solution for decades.

Mission Statement

Our chief goal is to develop and produce world-class products using the highest quality talent in the United States of America. Coast Products guarantees that our fill and flush valve solutions will provide customers with long-term performance, reliablity, and sustainability.

We are proud to say that 100% of our products are manufactured in the U.S.A and still able to compete globally. We have recently partnered with Amazon and our products will be available for purchase on Amazon very soon. Until then you can purchase directly from our website at http://www.coastproductsonline.com

All of the recent "Made in USA" discussions taking place this past year repeatedly bring the words of Ross Perot to mind. "You're going to hear a loud sucking sound and that's all the jobs leaving this country and going to Mexico"
Many said he was crazy. Doesn't seem so crazy now, does he.

DLVann, while I do not think that Amazon encourages anyone promoting their own website/interests on Amazon discussion boards, I will take the time to visit since you so kindly and eloquently stated why we, as Americans, should.

Demand Amazon start listing country of origin on their pages.

Posted on Oct 22, 2011 10:29:06 AM PDT
LanceP', On the "O" site they have a Made in USA symbol if it's made here - let's hope that Amazon follows suit.

Now that it's been mentioned a few times I think I'll drop a line to Amazon requesting that.

I 've noticed a LOT of books now are printed in China, particularly cooking/craft books with lots of photos and glossy paper. I realize that publishers are trying to give customers what they want--a nice, affordable book--but it saddens me to see that now books aren't even made here in the USA much.

The concept of "Buy American" is somewhat blurred. I have a Honda motorcycle that was made in Ohio and my wife drives a Honda Odyssey that was made in Alabama. Honda is a Japanese company but the product was made in America. I also have a Dodge truck that was made in Mexico. So what does " Buy American" Mean?

I would also like to comment on the "Made in China" hatred. China is making products cheaply because the labor force is being paid peanuts. But people still buy their products because the first thing most people look at is the price. Quality takes a very back seat to the point that you usually can't buy a quality product. It really doesn't matter where something is made. American products can be just as crappy, or even worse, then those made in China, or India, or any other third world country. The situation of jobs leaving America isn't China's fault it's Americas fault. Or rather the American worker. People thought that they would get to work in some plant like dad did and have a job forever. Well that was dumb. Then the unions killed off manufacturing by the droves. US Steel is a perfect example. The workers just want more money. They don't care that the market is open to foreign pressure. So US Steel union went on strike. That was when Japanese steel was bought by everybody that needed steel to make everything from toys to trucks. They found out the steel was good and cheaper then US Steel products. And BAM US Steel was no more. The union should have told the workers that there would be competition from other companies. But that didn't happen. And same thing is happening all over America. Unions are killing jobs.

And what about integrity??? Amazon used to show what each item cost to ship. Now they don't tell you the shipping is until the last moment. This is so you can't drop the item that is being over charged for shipping. I refuse to buy from Amazon any more. If I can't get free shipping I don't buy. So if you want to complain about something that you can effect there you go.

Posted on Oct 22, 2011 4:48:22 PM PDT
Why don't you get free shipping? The only Amazon purchases I pay shipping on are from outside vendors.
I even get super saver shipping on my orders of canned dog and cat food both of which are very heavy.

Do you check the 'super saver' shipping on your orders?

Joseph Ekaitis,

You might want to read the "exploding cookware" thread at:
http://www.amazon.com/forum/cooking/ref=cm_cd_pg_pg1?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=Fx211KPGGBLHNC6&cdPage=1&cdSort=oldest&cdThread=Tx105CBKW8EWL0A

Supposedly, Corningware is now owned by a Chinese company and there have been a lot of people injured by exploding cookware due to a change in the manufacturing process. I'm not claiming any of this is true, because I just don't know. But the thread on this topic offers a lot of persuasive information. Read it and draw your own conclusions. Personally, I'm glad I have an adequate supply of the old stuff.
