Lodge Dutch Oven
Lodge has been producing classic cast-iron cookware out of its Tennessee factory for more than 100 years. The Porcelain on Enamel Cast Iron Dutch Oven from Lodge's Color line ($105, amazon.com) was a top performer in our test of casserole dishes, browning evenly on both gas and electric ranges and turning out a tender and flavorful beef stew. This induction-safe pot comes red, blue, green, pumpkin, and burgundy.

Viking Range
Manufactured in the Mississippi delta, Viking's ranges are standouts for both style and performance. The fire-engine red VDSC530B-SS ($4,999, amazon.com) was our top pick for a dual-fuel model in our last test. This professional-looking range proved simple to use and was the only one in the bunch to bake four cake layers evenly at once.

Nordic Ware Skillet
Family-owned Nordic Ware has been operating out of Minneapolis for nearly 70 years. Its Restaurant Cookware line ($69 for a 12-inch skillet, amazon.com) performed well in our skillet test, browning steak evenly and maintaining a steady simmer. The professional look will go well with any kitchen.





Anchor Hocking Food Storage
Since 1905, Anchor Hocking has been manufacturing its glassware in Ohio and Pennsylvania. The True Seal food storage containers ($8-$21, amazon.com) were top performers for glass in our 2009 test, doing the best job of any at keeping air out so food stays fresher.

Cutco Kitchen Knife
Cutco products have been made in New York since 1949. Its Petite Chef's Knife ($114, amazon.com) has a blade that’s slightly shorter than your average chef's knife — handy if you find a full 8-inch blade too large or hard to control.

Spic and Span Multi-Surface Cleaner
Made in the U.S., Spic and Span's Cinch Glass & Multi-Surface Cleaner ($4.49 for 32 oz., amazon.com) quickly cleared messes on stainless steel, glass, and laminate countertop. (The product promises to clean outdoor surfaces, car windows, and plenty more, as well.)

Weiman Carpet Cleaner
Based in Illinois, Weiman has been manufacturing cleaning products since 1941. The company's carpet cleaner ($4.99 for 22 oz., amazon.com) was our top trigger-spray formula, working quickly to dissolve fresh stains, especially spaghetti sauce, in our tests. The bottle carries the EPA's Design for the Environment label, meaning it contains the safest possible ingredients and it boasts an oxygen ingredient to safely lighten stains.

Mrs. Meyer's Dishwashing Detergent

    • Russia creates 'unstoppable' hypersonic Zircon missile with Navy destroying 4,600mph speed

      Russia claims to have created a devastating hypersonic missile that travels five times faster than the speed of sound and could rip through navy warship defences because it's too fast to stop. The Kremlin's Zircon missile has been called "unstoppable", "unbeatable" and "undefendable" with a 4,600mph speed that only one defence system in the world can destroy – that system is owned by Russia. The missile employs revolutionary scramjet technology to reach its hypersonic speeds whereby propulsion is created by forcing air from the atmosphere into its combustor where it mixes with on-board fuel – rather than carry both fuel and oxidizer like traditional rockets.

Called (obviously) #whatsmysnack, he shines the spotlight on a range of healthy snacks which, judging by his inability to pronounce some of them – we’re looking at you ‘cacao baobab banana chia’ – he may not be making himself. ...

    • Why Republicans dutifully defend Trump's most ridiculous lies

      In the past, presidents have told big lies mostly for one of two reasons. In the midst of scandal or failure, they told lies to protect themselves and deny that they had done wrong: I am not a crook, we did not trade arms for hostages, I did not have sexual relations with that woman. Or they lied to convince the public to go along with a policy initiative, whether a war or a tax cut or a new program, when the truth was insufficiently persuasive. Unlike his predecessors, President Trump lies for any reason at all. I imagine the sinking feeling his aides get when he blurts out another whopper. "Now I'm going to have to go out and defend this," they say with a sigh, then huddle together to arrive

    • After Trump spent the weekend on his golf course, Fox News sends out an odd 'news alert'

      Some critics of President Trump and the news media argue that political commentators have set an unusually low bar for Trump. At 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, the news division of Fox News sent out this "news alert": In fact, Trump spent Saturday and Sunday at his golf course in Sterling, Virginia. His staff said he was in meetings, but social media posts showed he was wearing his golf attire and spending time on the links. "Normally, I'd suggest that everyone cool it with the golf snark," notes Kevin Drum at Mother Jones. "We've now had four consecutive presidents who have taken endless grief every time they hit the links, and it's pretty stupid." But not only was this Trump's 13th trip to one of his
