From the inventors to the factory floor workers, Manufactured tells the story of great products. Each episode follows the conception, history and manufacture of three objects. These include the Stetson hat, signature profile of the Wild West; Toto Drake II toilet, the best thing to happen to bathroom visits; Zippo lighter, a flick of fire guaranteed for life; Vitamix blender, the power tool for your meals, and Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey, the highest selling American whiskey to date. Through original filming, historical stock footage and interviews, Manufactured tells the stories of thirty-nine iconic products from prototype through to the production line.
