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
Inspired by Iowa homemaker Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer, the Mrs. Meyer's line comes in a range of garden-fresh scents ranging from basil to geranium. Even better, the Clean Day Automatic Dish Pacs ($8 for 20, amazon.com) banished hard-water spots best of all the tablets in GHRI tests.

Green Toys Kitchen Toy
Made in the U.S. from recycled plastic, Green Toys' Salad Set ($20, amazon.com) gets healthy eating habits started early. Our imaginative kid testers had fun pretending to serve guests with its serving bowl, salad plate, serving utensils, condiments, and veggies ranging from mushrooms to peppers. This set is suitable for children ages 2 and up.

Buffalo Games Game
Made in Buffalo Games' New York factory, Gotcha! ($28, amazon.com) is great for older kids. The game is all about making and breaking rules; to make your way along the board, just follow the rules that pertain to you and catch others when they slip up. But be careful — the rules are constantly changing!

    • Fox News' Chris Wallace to Reince Priebus: 'You don't get to tell us what to do'

      Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus clashed Sunday over President Trump's tweet labeling the media an "enemy of the American people." "I don't have any problem with you complaining about an individual story" or bias, Wallace said. "But you went a lot further than that — or the president went a lot further than that he said that the 'fake media' — not certain stories — the 'fake media' are an 'enemy to the country.'" Priebus pushed back, arguing that the issue is "not just two stories" that may be marred by bias or error but "24 hours a day, seven days a week" of cable news programming that focuses not on the Trump administration's policy accomplishments

    • Trump comment about immigration 'problems' baffles Sweden

      By Anna Ringstrom and Andy Sullivan STOCKHOLM/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's suggestion that Sweden experienced an immigration-related security incident prompted a baffled response from the Scandinavian country on Sunday as diplomats asked for an explanation and citizens responded with amusement. Trump, who in his first weeks in office has tried to sharply tighten U.S. borders on national security grounds, cited Sweden as a country that had experienced problems with immigrants in remarks at a rally on Saturday.

    • Shocking image shows Kim Jong-nam's final moments after he was assassinated

      Shocking images of the moment Kim Jong-nam was assassinated in a Malaysian airport have emerged for the first time. The half-brother of North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un was poisoned on 13 February, allegedly by two women believed to be acting on behalf of the rogue state. It was originally thought the two women involved were North Korean spies, but it emerged on Saturday that at least one of the women – Sisi Asiyah, 25, from Indonesia – believed they were taking part in a television prank, though this has not been officially confirmed.

    • Millard Fillmore was deservedly forgotten, but his politics sound familiar

      History doesn’t repeat itself. But it has an unnerving tendency to rhyme. Consider, on this first Presidents’ Day under Donald Trump, another New Yorker who occupied the highest office in the land. When Millard Fillmore became the nation’s 13th president upon the death of Zachary Taylor in 1850, he immediately plunged the White House and the Whig Party — one of the nation’s two dominant political parties — into turmoil. On the day he took the oath of office, Fillmore petulantly dismissed every member of Taylor’s Cabinet, which he resented for having ignored him when he was vice president. As a result, it took weeks — in one case, more than two months — before the new president’s Cabinet members
