Are the cabinets basically the same, or is the USA one better made (thicker cabinet) and/or different finish?
If they are basically the same, I can’t see why someone would spend a considerable amount more for the USA one, unless stock is an issue. I like seeing Made in the USA as much as the next guy, but not if it’s basically the same and the price differential is huge.
Different finish. The Ohio made cabinets come with a unique textured satin black finish proprietary to PSA. It takes quite a few man hours to properly apply this spray-on finish which adds cost and was a bottleneck to production at PSA. To increase production to meet market demand the Chinese cabinets were added with a more generic black covering which makes them easier and cheaper to mass produce.
