I need a new steam iron and I want to use my dollars to vote for North American workers instead of Chinese slave labour . I have no idea what to look for. Which strong steam iron is made in Canada or the US? If you would check yours and let me know I would really appreciate it.

You could probably and look for Irons made in the U.S.

Ok, I'm just kidding!! I have 2 irons, one made in Singapore, one in China. You'd think there has to be something out there other than the old put in the fire irons. Let us know what you come up with.
