Praise for Made In from World-Class Chefs and Critics

What Are Professionals Saying?

When it comes to cookware, professional chefs are just like the rest of us. They want beautiful, high-performance pots and pans that are smartly designed and crafted from high-grade materials. They want cookware that’s a pleasure to use and lasts a lifetime (literally). And they don’t want to pay exorbitant prices or settle for cheap imitations.

We get it. That’s why Made In was founded back in 2016. And in just a few short years, we’ve won the hearts of countless professional chefs. Peek in the back of a 3-star Michelin restaurant and there’s a good chance you’ll find one of the 50,000 pieces we’ve shipped to professional kitchens across the country.

    • Best Stainless Steel Pots and Pans "With their heavy bottoms, and well-designed, easy-to-life handles, the pots and pans from Made In became my most-used cookware during the two-week testing period. Since the cookware is made of brushed stainless steel rather than polished, it was easy to clean and keep clean."
