WTB: USA made stainless measuring spoons - December 3, 2016, 10:31 AM

So where in the hell can I find any? I want to get a little stocking stuffer for the wife and we need them anyway. I can find Rubbermaid brand all day long and they are made in the USA. I really want to get a set of stainless steel ones. The only stainless ones I can find are made by some half-naked slave kid wearing mismatched sandals using questionable materials (Chinese) with an unknown lead content.

If you want to select them in person

Sur La Table

William Sonoma

Macy's

Bed Bath & Beyond

Ikea


(but to be confident of the content you'll probably want the pricier ones)

Well I guess you should get off your "too lazy to google" ass and go check some of these in person to judge for yourself what the build materials are.




(iirc - the stainless measuring spoons and cups at Sur Le Table & William Sonoma have "Made In USA" stickers on them. I gave you other choices cause I don't know how cheap you are.)

You might try searching on websites that cater to "Made in USA Products". The website....

Still Made in USA.com - American-Made Products for Home and Family

is run by a woman who lives in Alexandria. And there are quite a few others as well. Here is the Kitchen & Dining page link from her website, you might try looking there.

Still Made in USA.com - American-Made Kitchen and Dining Wares

Good luck, I wish just a fraction of Americans would buy on quality or location rather than buying the cheapest chinese POS they can find only to be disappointment when it doesn't hold up...or poisons them.

The only metal ones made in the US that I know of are these but they are pewter not Stainless. Unfortunately, I think all of the Stainless ones are made in China. Even the top line brands. You can find a few plastic ones made in the US, as backwards as that sounds.

Not lazy man. I've been searching. It's pretty damn hard to find them. I don't give a rats ass if they are made of unobtanium if it's from China. I won't buy shit from there. Unless it's a last resort. I'll have to check WS out. Didn't see anything bin their site indicating country of origin.

I think you might be able to find some Japanese made ones online, but they might be metric units

Step 1. google item. I had a dozen possibilities in under 20 seconds

Step 2. notice that, even though you included "stainless" and "made in USA" (maybe you typed murrica?) none of them specifically stated place of origin on a website

Step 3. pick the best/closest(whatever?) three or so and go to those stores and actually look at the item. Some (all?) will have the place of manufacture indicated on the item or it's packaging (even these days most "Made In USA" products will have that on them somewhere)

Step 4. if you're still unsure then ask a salesperson

Shopping is like troubleshooting, there's a method but it's surprising how many people don't know it. Kinda like knowing how to say "thank you" to someone that takes time out of their day to provide you information you asked for.

Yup. Wasn't on the site, it was on the item.

Instead of giving him a hard time for not googling what he wants, I tried to find it, and it's not easy. I couldn't find any stainless measure spoons (or cups) that in some way or form stated made in the USA. Even W&S, they have a made in USA section but with no measuring cups or spoons.

So, if you want to give him a hard time then at least throw up some of your 'possibilities' to show how easy it was.

Dude! Really?

Look at my first post. The polite, helpful one. The one with a link to lots of possibilities.
Followed by a list of stores.
Followed by a suggestion on the ones that would have higher quality items.
That would likely meet his (almost) absolute "Made In USA" criteria.

Followed by the OP's (& his bud's) snarky "are'nt we cool and funny" sh!t. So yeah, he got some back.

Cope.

Pump your brakes and 'cope'.

None of your results seemed returned what he was looking for (made in the usa); it's not hard to find stainless measuring spoons made elsewhere.
