Enamel cast-iron cookware

Can someone tell me what enamel cast-iron cookware is NOT made in China? I am concerned about lead being in the enamel finish. I picked up the Chefmate from Target and then took it back because I go worried about lead, and there was no labels on the cookware giving it any passing grade of standardization so to speak.

Yet, I also see that Mario Batali's cookware, even though made by Copco, is also made in China! Also Staub is made in China.

I would like to avoid cookware made in China and I would like to know that it is lead-free.

Any recommendations?

Also - I wonder if anyone has tried the new Chantal copper fusion pans? Is there anything special to having that copper between the layers of cast iron? Will it really cook better?

Am particularly interested in where Chantal cookware is manufactured and Le Creuset is manufactured.

Thanks for directing me in the right direction. I am looking to replace my Caphalon and Circulon.

PS, I am also looking to hang my pots - is that recommended with this type of cookware?
