I haven't gotten a chance to read much lately, however, I did pick up the July 2015 Consumers Reports and was pleasantly surprised at what I read.

KitchenAid dishwashers and stand mixers, Whirlpool and Amana clothes washers, and Vitamix blenders are among the top-performing American made appliances.  In fact, a dozen brands on the list of over 50 household appliances are assembled at factories right here in Ohio.

And, even better, many of my clients said they would be willing to pay more for an appliance that they could trust and would last.  An added bonus was that they were made in the USA, and even better, made in Ohio.
