The description of this product says, "Call folks in for dinner with a piece of Americana." But it's made in China.
I own many of the Lodge products that are made in the US, frying pans, griddle, grill pan, dutch ovens and camp ovens. Imagine my dismay after I picked this up at Cabella's, to discover when I got home the box was stamped "made in China!" I was fairly certain ALL the black iron was made in the U.S.A. Apparently not. Since Lodge does make so many products that are black iron, it's baffling why this piece would be made in China. I love my Lodge products, but this one made me unhappy. As far as the triangle, it's okay, doesn't ring as loud, like one my grandparents had, and the striker slips easily off the leather, so can get lost. The loop should be closed so it can't slide off.
