PADERNO – Our Story. For close to 40 years, PADERNO has been making quality cookware and kitchen tools to fuel Canada’s passion for cooking. The first Canadian PADERNO plant was opened on Prince Edward Island in 1979 and PADERNO continues to produce cookware there today.
Beside above, are Paderno pots made in China?
There is an old saying, “if you can’t beat them, join them”, and at some point, the Caseys decided, along with manufacturing locally, to also import lower quality cookware from China, and distribute it to major retailers in Canada under the heralded Paderno brand name.
Subsequently, is 304 or 316 stainless steel better?
For instance, 316 stainless steel is more resistant than 304 to salt and other corrosives. So, if you are manufacturing a product that will often face exposure to chemicals or a marine environment, 316 is the better choice.
Is any cookware made in Canada?
MEYER – CANADA’S ONLY COOKWARE MANUFACTURER
Bringing Canadians a wide selection of quality cookware and bakeware products, including our own Canadian-made Meyer Canada stainless steel cookware.
Meyer Cookware is good quality then most but cost is little higher as per the thickness. You can definitely try this if you are looking for something good with good warranty and quality then other.
When Canadian Tire purchased the Paderno brand in 2017, Meyer purchased the manufacturing and wholesale operations.
Conclusion. Offering excellent quality products at a premium price, Meyer products enjoy a high user rating. When it comes to stainless steel cookware, nickel-free ranges and ceramic coated cookware, they are among the best.
Meyer’s cookware is manufactured and distributed internationally with factories in China, Thailand and Italy. Cookware lines are stainless steel, hard-anodized aluminum, and non-stick aluminum. The parent manufacturing firm is still based in Hong Kong while the distribution company moved to California in 1992.
Overall, grade 316 is usually the better choice when making food-grade stainless steel containers. 316 SS is more chemically-resistant in a variety of applications, and especially when dealing with salt and stronger acidic compounds such as lemon or tomato juice.
MADE FOR CANADIANS, BY CANADIANS

Keep in mind the difference between 18/10 stainless steel and 18/8 stainless is only 2%. While 18/10 stainless steel will be slightly better at conducting heat you may want to save money by choosing an 18/8 stainless steel product. A perfect example of 18/8 stainless steel is an Induction Ready Wok from Adcraft.
