3M N95 Masks made in the USA

Amazon has N95 masks on sale from 3M at a great price. https://amzn.to/39t9wsS At 58 cents a mask it's the cheapest I've seen these since the pandemic began. Hopefully we don't have to deal with another pandemic--worst comes to worst use them for cleaning and painting and construction, which is what...

Zojirushi travel mug made in Thailand

Great deal going on now for a Zojirushi Travel Mug Rare to find them under their list price of $29.99. These are made in Thailand. The prize is to find one made in Japan, but those are usually just found in Asia. They’re slightly pricier than the garbage made in China ones, and will last forever and...

Toaster from Japan

Here's a toaster I saw a poster on Slickdeals rave about today. I'm so impressed by the reviews I added it to my "best of" list. For the time being it's under $300. https://amzn.to/3wdG8Qb Here's the original post https://slickdeals.net/f/15787132-mitsubishi-electric-to-st1-t-luxury-japane...

Frying pan set made in the USA

I had to do a double-take on this one, but it looks like Kohl's is selling a Calphalon Frying Pan set for only $65. https://fave.co/3LAKIxp You can apply promo code GOSAVE25 to bring the price down to $48.74. That's about $20 less than the normal price Calphalon makes so much of their stuff in China...

Re: Toaster Ovens

Sadly, this is one category where I searched for days and weeks and can find nothing. Breville uses the weasel words "Designed in Australia, Made in China", as if that means anything. Wolf is made in China. Cuisinart, of course, is made in China. Balmuda is made in China. Instant Pot is ma...

Re: Ladles not made in China

Yes, the story of OXO is the story of so many American companies that were founded in 1990. They started out making super high-quality stuff. The founders sold to General Housewares Corporation in 1992, which was acquired by World Kitchen LLC in 2000. In 2004 Helen of Troy Limited (who also owns and...

Re: Ladles not made in China

Thanks for the information, Paul. It's reassuring to know that there are still European brands that have not completely sold out to China. It pains me to say this as an American, but it was the USA that almost single-handedly built up China to be the monster it is today. Politicians and corporate ex...

Ladles not made in China

After years of dealing with sellout brands like OXO and Kitchenaid for my kitchen utensils, I was thrilled to find a brand called Westmark . It's amazing what a racket brands like OXO run. After moving all their manufacturing to China, their utensils dropped in quality (for example, our set of plast...

Kites not made in China

I've been looking all over for kites not made in China. h/t to someone on Reddit for this one. https://www.taitdesignco.com/all-kites TAIT products ripstops in Torrance, California; carbon fiber in Elbridge, New York; grommets in Houston, Texas; hand-sewn bags in Detroit, Michigan; and assembles the...

Tiger Rice Cooker from Japan

If you’re a Costco member, here’s a great deal. It’s a Tiger 5.5 cup Micom rice cooker, made in Japan. It’s only $80 after a $20 rebate. It’s not as advanced as Zojirushi, but it’s still worlds ahead of the cheap made in China models by Black and Decker or one of those new brands no one’s heard of. ...
