site states made in USA. pans and carton state made in China. "designed" In USA. Stainless/aluminum composite pans are thin and easily dented. "double boiler" is not actually a double boiler where one pan fits snuggly inside the other. It is 2 of the same pan and you set the other on the top where it of course it will not set securely. Lid is not vented to properly allow for steaming as well. overall, a really bad purchase- at least for me.
