I need to see how the strainer locks in place - I don't like the ones with the floppy stoppers or the spring type.

The one I currently have has a single heavy duty piece of metal that goes into the drain hole and locks in place. In addition when you pull it up it stays in the hole and doesn't flop to one side. I would like to see a photo of the bottom of the strainer part.

What do I need to buy with a new kitchen sink?

I am buying the Kohler Anthem sink (K-5840-1) for a total kitchen remodel; what else do I need to order, and should it also be Kohler to fit correctly? (i.e. drain, p-trap, basket strainer.) Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
Hello, my name is Heather with Kohler Customer Service. Along with the sink K-5840-1 you will also need to purchase the sink drain/strainer. You do not need to purchase a Kohler drain/basket strainer, however we do have recommended models of drains to fit this sink. Model number K-8799-VS is not a recommended sink strainer, however a recommended Duo strainer sink drain and strainer is: K-8801. A recommended P trap is the K-9000. The diameter of the drain hole is 3-7/8" if you want to find another drain besides a Kohler to use. Thank you for your inquiry and choosing the Bold Look of Kohler.

Duostrainer 4-1/2 in. Sink Strainer in Vibrant Stainless is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rainbow colored drain We ordered 2 of these for our double sink. When they arrived, they were rainbow colored with a blue hue instead of oil rubbed bronze. So we re-ordered 2 more since the coloring was way off. Those 2 arrived with slight imperfections. We were pretty disappointed that an expensive, well known brand has such poor quality control. These items should not have made it through "inspection". Buyer beware, you may want to purchase more than you need to get the right color outcome & return what you don't use.

I ordered 2 of them, so the chances that screws were missing from both is very odd. Very frustrating since the plumber was here to install and he had to make a trip to the hardware store to buy screws.

The strainer was just what i wanted -- only thing, the installers came to install sink and countertops. there was only one strainer in the box. as of now, i can only use one side of hte sink -- iwth a housefull of company coming for Christams. :( I called Home Depot and ordered the 2nd one, but it wont be here till Dec 28-30. So i am very disapponited in not having a full sink to use for several days.

My old strainer was peeling, so I was going for quality, and only time will tell if I made the right choice. However, it should be noted that the edge is thick and leveled (not tapered towards the drain), so a ring of water at least an inch wide (appears brighter on the pic) always stays trapped around the strainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Tier The workers were impressed with the quality of the drain. These guys have been in the field for 20years. The negative reviews are for a deteriorating washers, just don't pour oils or grease down the drain and this will be a lifetime drain. But then again, these are close to $100 each as compared to $15-20. Good Luck

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality The rubber gasket is so thick, it made the drain higher than the bottom of the sink, leaving a puddle all the time. I pulled it out and just put silicone down. The color is basically black, not quite a match to my faucet which is the same "oil rubbed bronze" but excellent quality compared to in stock merchandise

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Heavy Duty When you take this strainer out of the box, even with your eye's closed you would know why it cost so much. It is very heavy. Nothing flimsy about this strainer. We've had it in for about a month and no problems. My wife likes it more than the old one. She always had trouble finding the position for keeping the drain open after closing it on the old one but this one doesn't seem to be problem. The rubber seal is a simple O-ring that looks like it can easily be replaced, unlike our old one which leaked badly and couldn't. We're happy.
