That 7 quart mixing bowl is not exactly old WMF quality. In the course of washing it this AM I discovered how thin it was and that its handle flexes ominously. The four small spot welds are not exactly confidence inspiring. At least the manufacturer was upfront enough to emboss the inside of the handle 'MADE IN INDIA'.
Guess that's why a spare bowl 'only' costs $32.77, a pouring shield $18.83 and a container of gear grease $20.25

Don't blame India. They made it to manufacturer's specifications.

I did not blame India. It was more of an oblique reference to KA's hype- 'Assembled with Pride in Greenville, Ohio'

I wonder if there is an aftermarket manufacturer of KA bowls?

OK, I took it the wrong way.

I got the impression from your quote, "...how thin it was and that its handle flexes ominously. The four small spot welds are not exactly confidence inspiring. At least the manufacturer was upfront enough to emboss the inside of the handle 'MADE IN INDIA'..."

This suggested to me that the bowl was thin and flimsy because it was made in India.
