Satin Stainless Steel 3 1/2" drop-in basket strainer
Doesn't work very well!
I purchased a great Moen sink and needed this part to finish the installation. The service was great and I had the piece in a jiffy. However, its really a poor design for such a high-end sink. The basket design requires the basket to be 'up' (ie, not fit in the opening) in order for water to filter through. The mechanism to stop up the sink or allow water to drain is very touchy. In the end, I bought a new basket from Lowes for $1.99 and modified it just a little. Also, the holes in the basket are pretty big, allowing rice and good sized food particles to go down the drain, which is never a good idea.

Matching Product for a sink
This product matched the sink I also purchased. I like to keep brands together so that there is no chance for an installation mismatch. It fit in and works perfectly. It seems solid and well built - did not feel or look cheap. Seems like a lot of thought for a sink part no one really thinks about but that is my point - I just want to install it easily and have it perform flawlessly so I don't have to think about it.

High quality, great price
I was very please with the quality of this product. Other local items were flimsy, but this was solid brass, and fit my application perfectly.

Not up to usual quality.
This is a true lightweight in every respect. Water running into it causes it to close. Most annoying.
