I always try to buy American-made items too, except perfume, when I'm partial to the French, or leather-ware, which I know something about. Italian is the best.I drive a Civic. I think it was made in Indiana or Ohio. I forget which. I try to buy American made products, if I can. Sorry, I don't mean to offend anyone.
I gave up trying to buy US (or Canadian) made cookware. It is now all being made in China. And sorry, no offense to the Chinese but it isn't the same. I know people who have had Kitchenaids for 30 years no problem, but the new stuff being made in China isn't the same quality.
