I had several of the technique ss disk bottom pans for years and they held up quite well.
I've been upgrading for a while now, but have mixed in a few of their tri ply non stick pans as they are reasonably priced. They are manufactured in Thailand.
Enjoy.. and if you want to give the fully clad tri ply a try .. they offer a few random pieces that don't break the bank such as

Now tell me where you can find another skillet of this quality for less than 20 bucks!!
I got mine in red, but several colors are available.
"Stylish, durable, and multifunctional, this porcelain enameled skillet goes from the stove or oven directly to the table. Its cast iron construction provides exceptional heat retention for superior searing and browning, while the cream, enameled interior helps to resists stains and odors. From Technique(R) Cookware. "
Just thought I'd pass along this great find.
Somebody mentioned Made in China... yep, it probably is. But Le Creuset is also made in China now too. Staub is still made in France as far as I know.

I'd be interested to know the source of this information. I know that Le Creuset and AllClad and other companies do make some items in China, but their main product lines are made in the home countries (France USA etc)

Le Creuset makes several lines of cookware besides the cast iron. But according to their home page the cast iron is still made in France.

All Clad is made in the US, however their lids and non clad items are made overseas.
The boxes inform you of this as well.. I think the panini grill pan I have as a specialty anodized pan is made overseas.. the other tri ply stainless and ltd clad pieces are made in the states. The website will also inform of this.

Le Creuset cast iron is made in France, the stoneware is not, I have a few pieces though not nearby where I can double check, I think thailand is where the stoneware is made. The stainless steel is made elsewhere as well, I do think China was what I saw on them when I visited the outlet.
Interestingly, the LC website only addresses mfg of the cast iron. I don't find any retailers specifying origin country on this SS line either. I will say, what I saw in the shop was very nice though... and I do specifically remember it was not made in France, ahh.. here we go.. cooking.com has the origin listed on the stainless line as China as well:
Le Creuset Stainless Braiser (5-qt.) at Cooking.com

Henckels tri ply is made in China (listed on both metrokitchen and cooking.com)
Henckels Classic Clad Stainless 7 Piece Cookware Set HK-40320-000 on Sale with Free Shipping from MetroKitchen

Viking 7ply is mfg in Belgium:
Viking Sauce Pan (1.5-qt.) at Cooking.com

The Technique.. not sure about the enameled aluminum line, but their tri ply stainless is made in Thailand.. I have a few pieces of those.

Also, the KitchenAid 5 ply stainless is also made in Thailand, I have several of these.

And I believe Walmarts Tramontina is made in either Brazil or Thailand.. I don't have a piece to verify.

Hope this helps.

I absolutely agree with your post. After the many products pulled from the market because of serious health or safety issues items "Made in China" are all suspect. They evidently lack standards that prevent manufacture and export of SERIOUS health issues to the good old USA, and we evidently lack the inspection standards that would prevent these items from reaching our markets. Remember the infant formula? The Allclad small skillet made in China and the skillets made in the USA (I have both) are glaringly different. Beware.
