I am thinking of buying Calphalon, here is the thing I was told to not buy the ones made in China How do I know where it is made? I want to switch out my Teflon ones for a healthier Pan. Thanks

Made in China:
Calaphon Contemporary
Calaphon Commercial
Calaphon Tri-Ply Stainless
Calaphon Simply (Some seems to be made in the USA)


Made in USA:
Calaphon Unison
Calaphon One


For stainless, all made in USA, try 360 Cookware (decent cookware surrounded by considerable baloney) and All-Clad.

Yeah, that's what I got, GLC, but Calphalon doesn't make it easy to find out! Outlets like Amazon make no reference to country of manufacture, and an Australian site quoted as saying "Today, Calphalon is made in Toledo Ohio" has been taken down. But the statement is true. It just omits to mention that the majority of its product line is made in China. I tried Emailing Calphalon and was told that two of my Email addies were "invalid", so I ended up calling John at customer service and, after putting me on hold, he came back with an abbreviated version (he didn''t name all of the Chinese lines that you mention) of your list. GLC.
BTW, Leichty, did yr friend tell you of anything specifically wrong with the Chinese cookware, or was it just the popular sentiment that I read so often on Amazon, that if it comes from China, it must be poorly made and probably bad for your health? Well over half a century ago, when I was a lad, we used to say the same thing about the Japanese!

Sadly, some All Clad is made in China.

Sure they do. I was there earlier today looking at sauce pans and Amazon specifically listed "Made in China" and "Made in Italy" for the same pan
Here's the link The goofs...

I agree. Amazon's descriptions for pots and pans seems sorely lacking compared to other items.

I was talking to a women I work with and She buys Calphalon and told me not to buy the ones from China because they are not made as well and her Husband is a Veteran and he make sure that they buy American made products if all possible. I have never owned good cookware and I have no Idea what to buy, We live about 40 miles from Toledo ,Ohio so I thought it would be nice to buy from the area, But if you have any other suggestions Let me know, Thank you for your reply

Find the Calphalon you like on line, write down all the pertinent information, then go to Bed Bugs and Beyond and look at the box to see where the Calphalon you want is made.

Personally I wouldn't care where it was made because Calpalon is guaranteed for life and any defective product will be replaced free-fer-nuthin, regarldless of the manufacturing facility location. Just returned two Calphalon pans last week and got a Bed Bugs & Beyond store credit because they no longer make those particular pans.
