1. All-Clad has a policy of manufacturing all of its bonded cookware in the USA. This means that it purchases its metals only from US suppliers and bonds them at its own rolling mill on-site in Canonsburg PA. It then forms them at the same location into high performance cooking vessels.
2. All-Clad is the originator of bonded cookware technology and is committed to investing in bonded cookware manufactured solely in the USA.
3. There are areas in which All-Clad does not manufacture in the USA. These are:
- Where the bonding of metals is not required for superior cooking performance (E.g. tools, accessories).
- On regular non-bonded components where making them in the USA would add to the retail price but not generally to performance.
- Where manufacturing constraints exist at the Canonsburg plant (E.g electrical kitchen appliances).
4. All-Clad's tools, accessories or electrical kitchen appliances, are manufactured by select partners overseas qualified carefully by All-Clad with highest quality controls.
