Made in the USA
I went to Fleet Farm and looked at frying pans because the warden said one of ours is pretty beat up now. They had a couple made in China, and one made in Brazil, one made in the US. The Chinese ones looked the best, heaviest, strongest. The One made in Brazil was the only pan on the rack, in fact all the other pans by that manufacturer were labeled 'made in China' except for that one. The USA made one was the cheapest build of all. I easily bent the handle in my hands. I read the label again. 'Made in the USA with parts from other countries'. Well la de da... There are two parts on a frying pan, the pan and the dang handle. So someone bought the parts in China and screwed the handle on in the US and called it 'Made in the USA. Dodgy All the prices were the same, $14. I didn't buy any of them.

Why can't a store stock a good pan made in the USA and then tout it as such? Maybe it will cost $25, but it will be better and I'd feel better buying it. Maybe I should open a store of things ONLY made in the US like WalMart USED to be.Exclamation
