This sink basket is Beautiful! It fit perfectly in my 20yr old Kohler sink.

I bought 2 of these to replace my 25 year old strainers that would no long hold water in the sink. I thought they were expensive but looked like good quality. I put one in the kitchen sink and one in the laundry sink, which I mainly use to thaw out turkeys.
After I had already thrown out my old fixtures I discovered that both would not hold water. They were no better than my old 25 year old ones. I filled the laundry tub with cold water and a frozen turkey and the next morning found an empty sink with a warm turkey in it.
Besides this most fundamental reason for having a stopper, they are frustrating to use. You have to set the stopper in just the right position or it closes on you, filling the sink with water when you don't want it.
It was a lot of work to replace these and now I'm stuck with them because I didn't keep the old ones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandD Fits better than others
Good fit and finish This unit is thin enough at the edges that it fits well in the bottom of a conventional cast iron sink, but still strong enough. Others often present a high edge that collects food.
Went back to this Kohler design.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Art The best I have ever seen
I am a very serious DIY person that has been installing sinks for nearly 50 years. This strainer is the best I have seen (built like a tank) and the easiest to install - you just tighten three screws under the sink with a Philips screw driver.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by whatdoiknow Not sure why this is cheaper
I've had this chrome duostrainer for two weeks now; I got it at a local home depot for $8 more, but then I probably would have gone with a loss leader had I ordered online. In the store, there's this, then all the others, the weight itself is worth the cost.
Terribly simple to install; I went with the cheap putty vs the non-staining putty -- go with the non-staining for this; I'm sure the residue will eventually go away completely, but it is amazing how it initially latches on. I've run about 40 gallons of water with about 4 gallons of bleach over the past two weeks, and have dropped mason jars that cracked on it -- so far, no threat of the finish chipping nor wasting.
It's tough to find a drain basket with a metal bottom -- this has a 1/4"+ thick brass "+" you can't damage; the stopper is a thick, heavy disk with a thin o-ring around it -- it seals perfectly, and if it does degrade, I don't expect to have a problem finding a silicone replacement -- worse comes to worse, dental floss plus a very brief, light flame is an easy fix.
I got this for Kohler's Prolific sink -- Kohler is pricy, imperfect, but they deliver what you expect; anything cheaper will be largely plastic and sheet metal. I'm honestly more concerned about damaging the sink than this all heavy-metal strainer.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gleaner A Screw Loose
Hard to install when no screws were included....once we got beyond that (my plumber fortunately had some in his truck), it looks and functions great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tim123 Easy to install!!!
The original strainer installed in my kitchen sink had to much plumbers putty and was misaligned. After trying to fix it I ended up breaking the huge nut that tightened the strainer to the sink. So, I bought this one which was twice as much as most of the other ones in the store because it looked easy to install. It in fact was one of the easiest home improvement projects I have ever done. The whole install took less than 10 minutes. Not only was it easy to install but the quality of the drain plug and how nice it looks in the sink is not even comparable to the original model. It is worth the extra money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Remodeler Excellent Quality
The Kohler Duostrainer is more expensive than some other sink strainers on the market, but the quality of workmanship is excellent, and the strainer looks great installed. We purchased this strainer for another sink in our home several years ago, and it still looks like new. Highly recommend. Also, the ordering process through The Home Depot was great from start to finish. Received the product in a timely manner without any drama.
