kitchen utensils made in the USA
Actually, anything of great quality NOT made in China. I'm trying to buy products from the USA. I apparently first posted this question in the wrong section. I am new to this so thanks for the redirection.
These are the american made products I am hoping to find and hope someone out there can help me.
measuring cups and spoons
pie slicer ( was recently told Lamson & Goodman)
If anyone knows "where" I could find these american made utensils, please let me know. Thank you!
I worked in a kitchen store for years and we tried out best to carry Made in America products because some people insisted that was what they wanted to buy. The difficult part was they didn't want to pay more money for it since the items made in China were often so much cheaper. For the items you've listed, they tend to be lower cost to start out with so there is even less incentive to make them here when the profit margin is low. You might want to start at this site: http://www.stillmadeinusa.com/kitchen... which has a very long list of manufacturers. But don't be surprised if the prices are high.
Here are the pie servers
You may be able to locate them elsewhere for less.
You are going to have a fairly sketchy kitchen. Regalware, USA Pan, All Clad for cookware. Sadly Doughmakers is starting to farm out stuff to China. We put it on clearance and are done with it. Utensils? Unless you haunt garage sales, thrift shops for stuff made in the 60's and earlier etc you SOL.
Thrift stores, Goodwill, Salvation Army, garage sales, fleamarkets, Craigslist.
Vintage EKCO, and Flint will give you good service.
