Made in the USA: Best Homegrown Household Products for Your Family
American-made products seem harder than ever to find these days. But several tried-and-true items that are actually household names are still made in the good ol' U.S. of A. Stock your home with these all-American products for your kitchen, dining room, and more.
Weber Charcoal Grills
What's more American than a backyard barbecue? Weber's classic dome-shaped charcoal grill hasn't changed much since it first appeared in 1952 — including where it's made: in the USA. Fire it up!
KitchenAid Stand Mixers
First sold in 1919 as the "Food Preparer," the KitchenAid stand mixer remains a culinary dream machine. These days, the mixer comes in two dozen colors (swoon!) and is still made in the company's Greenville, Ohio factory.
Lodge Cast Iron Pans
Lodge's hearty pots and pans have graced American hearths and stoves for more than a century — with some of the originals still in use today. All of their seasoned cast iron products continue to be made in an Appalachian town in Tennessee.
Homer Laughlin Fiesta Dishware
Fiestaware is highly collectable, sturdy earthenware that comes in a rainbow of colors — from Marigold to Flamingo. Two brothers, Homer and Shakespeare Laughlin (destined for greatness!), established their pottery business in the Ohio Valley in 1871, where the Homer Laughlin Company maintains its roots today.
Nordic Ware Bakeware
When it comes to bundt pans, bakeware, and other kitchen supplies, Nordic Ware is an old pro. Established in 1946, the family-owned company employs more than 300 people in Minneapolis — and goes the extra mile, using local suppliers for their packages and boxes, machinery, metal, tools, and nonstick coating and paint. Bravo!
Anchor Hocking Company Glassware
Anchor Hocking started out in 1905, and it's clear that they're sticking with their roots. They produce quality glass canisters, drinkware, bakeware, serveware, and tabletop accessories in their original Lancaster, Ohio facility and at a newer Monaca, Pennsylvania site.
As many moms can attest, dishes don't get much more kid-friendly than Corelle. Most Corelle dinnerware is made from the company's special "Vitrelle" glass, which is break- and chip-resistant. Corelle plates and bowls (with the exception of the Hearthstone collection) are still proudly made in the U.S.
All-Clad Stainless Steel Cookware
Cooks drool over All-Clad stainless steel pots and pans, handcrafted from American-made metals by American workers in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. Metal expert John Ulam founded the company in 1967 and also landed a contract for making dimes, quarters, and half dollars for the U.S. Mint.
Something about using Pyrex products makes you feel just like Grandma — probably because little has changed about the company's glassware products in the past 60 years. In 1998, the company changed hands from Corning Incorporated to World Kitchen, an American company based in Illinois, and manufacturing still happens stateside.
Liberty Tabletop Flatware
Finding flatware that's not made in a faraway country is like finding a needle in a haystack. Liberty Tabletop stainless steel flatware comes in nine different styles to suit your taste and is made in Upstate New York. They also produce baby spoons with (BPA-free) Soft-Bite coating on the end, just like Mom used to use for you.
The Company Store Down Comforters
Since 1911, The Company Store has crafted its high-quality down comforters in its La Crosse, Wisconsin factory. Many of their pillows, fluffy mattress toppers, and Primaloft (down alternative) products are also manufactured in the U.S. Talk about the American dream!
