What Bakeware is Made in the USA (& not made in China)
It can be difficult to find any product these days that is not made in China. This also applies to bakeware and most other types of cookware.
Now, buying from China does not necessarily mean that the product is bad or of poor quality but many have concerns that labor practices may not be ideal, industry standards may not always be at their best or they simply prefer to support their own country by buying a product that is made in the USA.
With this in mind, I have created a big list of bakeware brands and some of their products that are made in the USA.
This includes only the most commonly used types of bakeware and the best of the best of those since there are hundreds, if not thousands, of bakeware items I could include.
IMPORTANT: Always check the description of the product you are buying before you purchase it to make sure it is made in the USA. If you see anything in the list below that is not made in the USA, please let us know by clicking on the Contact link in the menu.

From what I can tell people love it. It has excellent reviews on Amazon at least for certain pieces. I have noticed that the bakeware with folded corners gets mixed reviews. People complain about rust developing in the corners and the difficultly in cleaning. But as I said, there are mixed reviews so do your research.
