50 Products That Are Still Made in America
As the economy has become increasingly global, it's become steadily more difficult to find products made in the United States when shopping at retailers across the nation. For many consumers, "Made in USA" is a mark of quality that makes a purchase more worthwhile. In a 2015 survey by Consumer Reports, nearly 8 in 10 respondents said they prefer to buy American-made, and more than 6 in 10 said they're willing to pay 10 percent more. Although many popular brands seem to be stamped with "Made in China" labels, there are still companies whose products are manufactured right here in the USA.
Gibson guitars are among the most iconic instruments in popular music, and the company is fittingly based in Nashville, also known as Music City. The company was founded in Michigan more than a century ago and now manufactures its guitars at factories in Tennessee and Montana. Prices vary widely, from around $100 on the low end to well over $10,000 for new guitars on Amazon.
The KitchenAid mixer has been around in one form or another for more than 100 years now. The mixers are still produced at the company's flagship plant in Greenville, Ohio, even as KitchenAid has come to manufacture many non-American-made appliances, as well. The iconic stand mixers (starting at $200 on Amazon) are noted for their performance and durability.
From the same man who invented Tupperware, Sterilite makes plastic storage containers, as well as a host of other home storage products. The company's product line has expanded consistently since its founding in 1939, and it continues to manufacture its products exclusively in the USA.
