MIC: These 10 top-rated “made in America” products are high-quality — and let you buy local
Want to help keep the United States economy humming by buying products made here? Almost 80% of people responding to a Consumer Reports survey said they’d rather buy goods made on American soil.
Buying U.S.-produced goods supports local jobs and innovation, may reduce your carbon footprint (thanks to lower shipping costs) and gives you the confidence of knowing that the products you purchased were produced in a country with decent worker-protection laws.
Unfortunately, finding locally produced products can be a challenge — but we can help. Check out this list of the 10 top products made in the U.S., which Mic created by cross-referencing trusted consumer reviews with a list of 50 American-made products compiled by Cheapism:
5. Viking appliances
Viking’s high-end ovens, refrigerators and other products are all manufactured near its Greenwood, Mississippi headquarters, Cheapism reported. “This is a beautiful professional range with heavy-duty controls that are a breeze to use,” notes Good Housekeeping, which recommends Viking’s 30″ Open Burner Gas Range for its even heating and a fast boiling speed, among other features. But with a price exceeding $4,000, quality obviously comes at a cost.
