Kohler K-8801 Reviews

Oil Rubbed Bronze finish is PLASTIC!It's been nearly two years since we purchased these in the Oil Rubbed Bronze finish. With the price of them, I would figure they are a genuine oil rubbed bronze. They should really be called an oil rubbed bronze colored PLASTIC finish because that's what it really is. The strainers have chipped and the finish is coming off in large flakes. I'm not at all satisfied. But, the Kohler warranty is for only a year and they don't pay for installation or replacement anyway. I really am disappointed that a well known brand such as Kohler would put out such poor quality and then charge huge prices for it to make it look like it must be the real thing. The old adage of "you get what you pay for" isn't true in this case. Now I have the hassle of getting replacements from some other brand, installing them, etc. I figured they would outlast our ownership of this house.
Bottom line: Don't buy them! They are absolutely no good!

Glad I bought this with the sinkWhen I bought the Kohler sink, the handyman told me that we could buy a less expensive basket at one of the home builder stores. I believed him, but decided that I didn't want any possibility of a fitting problem (that I had recently faced with another product). I ordered this basket thinking it a bit pricey, but that it might save me future issues. Boy, am I glad I did!! This basket is solid, adds to the feel of the quality sink, and is obviously the same high quality as the sink. I shudder to think how the install might have gone if had I taken the handyman's advice.

Excellent Product!I purchased these for my stainless steel (SS) main/cleanup sink [Ticor] and SS prep sink [Kohler]. The SS of the DuoStrainers matches the SS of both sinks.
The quality of the product is the best I've seen after one year of use.
* The strainers are heavy-duty and are constructed such that they never accidentally close/seal. When you do want to close/seal them, you don't have to push them to or wiggle them to make a good seal...just turn & drop...they seal & stay sealed!
* No finish problems whatsoever.
Note: I also purchased the disposal flange (K-11352 ) and it is of similar quality.

Great Product-But......The product is very well made and very please with the product, but the color Oil Rubbed Bronze is simply BLACK. Very disappointed in color no bronze on it. Ordered the same product in Brazen Bronze and it matched the faucet much better. Would recommend it for workmanship but be careful of the colors when ordering bronze tones.

Excellent product!I purchased the 'french gold' basket and flange to replace a standard old set I had and it fit perfectly. The quality of the Kohler basket/flange met my expectations--quality workmanship; nice heavy weight; beautiful, durable finish--no scratches or marring in the 6 weeks I've had it installed. I put it in a brown sink basin and the french gold looks beautiful with it! It also came well-packaged and I had an excellent customer service experience! I highly recommend it! I also bought the Kohler K-11352 disposal flange in french gold--also a great product and matched the basket/flange perfectly. Good prices too--I checked around on the internet and locally.

shiny chrome is perfectI bought a brushed stainless sink and worried that the shiny chrome finish might not look right with the contemporary style sink bowl. I am an artist so I'm picky about looks. I'm pleased to say it looks perfect, and the quality of this basket and strainer is super high quality - the best I've ever had in the many upscale kitchens I've had in my career. It looks great, doesn't spot and works very smoothly. It's easy to clean and I'm very happy to recommend this product.

Worth the price differenceWe were surprised by the price difference between a high end sink drain and what is commonly available in the DIY stores.... it's the difference between tinny, light weight metal and a fine, quite heavy piece of quality nickel steel that is properly crafted. We opted for the top shelf item above to go into a new soapstone sink I put in. Not at all sorry we got the best! I wanted to do the job only once and know that it would last the life of this house (and probably outlast me also). Ordered easily. Got it speedily, installed it without a hitch. Great doing business with Faucet Direct.
What is the difference between the two oil rubbed bronze finishes (2BZ and BRZ)?
A. The Kohler K-8801 2BZ is a shiny oil rubbed bronze. The BRZ is a matte oil rubbed bronze.
Which strainer do I need if I have Blanco 440083 Double Basin Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink from the BlancoSupreme Series
A. The Kohler K-8801 will work for that sink, if you want a Blanco strainer it is product ID 440007.
I recently purchased the Kohler Anthem Sink K5840-3 in Black. Which Strainer/Tailpiece and size do I need? Is it available in black?
A. Your sink has a standard drain hole. You will need the Kohler K-8804 and the Kohler K-8803.
If I'm installing a disposal with this new sink, do I even need this item?
A. If you are installing a disposal then you will not need this piece with the tail piece. It still might be a good idea to purchase a basket strainer to keep unwanted items out of your disposal.
What strainer do I need with 5840-5U? Thanks!
A. The Kohler K-8801 is able to be used with the 5840-5U.
would love to order the oil rubbed bronze sink strainer but am worried about comments that it peels off in 1 year
A. This item would be covered under Kohlers warranty if something were to happen to the finish they would replace it under their warranty.
Can K-8801 be ordered without the tailpiece?
A. The Kohler K-8799 is the appropriate, tailless, version.
what's the difference between this one and Kohler K-8804?
A. The k-8804 is the body with tailpiece and does not include the strainer basket(k-8803).
Does this strainer fit any standard granite sink?
A. The Kohler K-8801 will fit any sink with a diameter of 3.5-4" outlets which is the standard measurement. However it can only be installed in sinks with a thickness of less than .78". So if your granite is thicker than this it will not work.
which strainer do I need if I'm going with the cape dory K-5864-5U sink?
A. The Kohler K-8801 would be appropriate for the Cape Dory.
How do I determine whether I need the strainer with tailpiece or without?
A. The need for the tailpiece depends on what kind of installation you are doing. If this is a whole new sink, you will probably need a tailpiece. If you are replacing the strainer in an existing sink, the tailpiece should be fine that is still attached. Please let me know if you have any questions!
I am ordering a Ticor S305 Undermount 16-Gauge Stainless Steel Double Bowl Kitchen Sink what drain do I need?
A. The Kohler K-8801 would be appropriate as it fits any typical kitchen sink drain and is offered in the Stainless Steel finish.
I ordered a double basin sink, Kohler K-3346-3. Do I need 2 of these basket strainers?
A. an alternative to a basket strainer is a garbage disposal.
what do I need for the 31 in Kohler stages sink to make it a complete unit?
The Kohler K-8801 would need a strainer and a faucet.
