Yesterday my micro wave oven crashed, so I had to buy a new one today ( Having the old one fixed would have probably cost me more). I had several brands to choose from, including Whirlpool from America, LG from South Korea, Matsui from Japan plus two others who I can't remember. Ultimately, I chose the Matsui oven because it was the cheapest.
Anyway, I noticed something interesting. Regardless of whether the brand was American or Japanese or Korean or of unknown origin, they all had the "Made in China" text on them (Or "Made in P.R.C.", but that is China)
