Classic Basket Strainer and Flange for Kitchen Sinks with a 3" Sink Opening
Beautiful but problematic
I purchased two of these in Polished Brass over a year ago when I replaced my double kitchen sink. The strainers are beautiful, made of heavyweight brass. The push-down closure is a breeze, and they never close accidentally. The finish has held up beautifully. However--the struts on the flange (the parts that hold the basket in place) are made of thinner metal than the rest of the unit, and the struts on one of my units broke after less than a year of use. Delta replaced it free of charge about three months ago, and now THAT unit has failed in the same way. Looks like a manufacturing flaw with some units. My other one is fine, though.

Value for your dollar
New to the world of remodeling - my husband and I didn't realize that strainers had to be ordered seperately from the facuet. When I told my husband that we were getting a deal on a $50 strainer - he replied "Who pays $50 for a strainer?" "Not us," I said. With Faucet Direct we saved 37%. Our kitchen project is almost complete - the strainer is of top quality - sturdy and durable. Not plastic. A perfect match to our faucet.

Expected the best
This basket drain was as good quality as we expected. The installation was easy and clearly explained in the packaging. The finish was beautiful and made a great addition to our new stainless steel sink. We are pleased with the final result!

Nice finish. Quality product.
I replaced all of the hardware in the kitchen sink, including the sink drain and garbage disposal mount. I removed the soap dispenser and installed the Delta water dispenser that I connected to a remote Stage 3 water filter. This really dressed up the kitchen sink and added a touch of elegance to an ordinary kitchen.
The stopper for the garbage disposal drain does not fit well and will not keep water in the sink so I had to purchase an off the shelf stopper.

Nothing too special here... it is a basket strainer for our sink. It does look good and matches our faucet perfectly. So I really like it, but again, it is just a sink drain, so I can't say too much about it.

The brushed bronze strainer and stopper look great in my new black sink. I have a Venetian Bronze faucet and the brushed bronze color complements it very well.

It looks great!
This strainer looks great with my new nickel faucet and granite sink. It's easy to keep clean. Delivery was on schedule. Good purchase!

purchased with stainless steel faucet and was exact match. Could not be happier with my new update of a mini bar.
