After my “Soap Box” rant I decided to wander about the house and check out some of my wife’s purchases for country of manufacture. Her hair dryers, curling iron, rollers were “Made in China”. Checking out portable fans and portable heaters “Made in China”. Electric can opener and irons “Made in China” All of these items had familiar names – GE, Sunbeam, Black & Decker to name a few.
I have always purchased Craftsman tools. Reasonably priced, good quality and US made. I recently purchased a set of Craftsman branded mini pliers. They were labeled “Professional” and the usual “Guaranteed for Life”. Upon cleaning one up after some work I noticed in horror “Made in China”. Is Craftsman next to slide down the slippery slope of cost savings in China?
Anyway guys here is your challenge. Find 3 products in your home (No Vehicles) that are not “Made in China” The items must be less than 2 years old. I could not do it, see if you can.
