Rated 1 out of 5Â by 2dice I returned it.
After checking with my Plumber he didn't recommend this brand or finish. I returned this and purchased a stainless steel instead. Stainless was less expensive and more durable according to my plumber.

I also wish I had read these reviews before I made my purchase. I have had the same issue with the paint peeling off within a few months. I too thought the cost would ensure value, but have been proved wrong.

I wanted a good quality, heavy duty strainer to match my new oil-rubbed bronze faucet. I selected a high end Kohler product, thinking it should be great, right? WRONG!. While the drain portion that is installed in the sink is fine, the strainer's finish is paint over stainless steel, which was not treated to "hold" the paint. About 6 weeks after installation, I turned the strainer over to empty it, and the entire painted back slipped off in one piece. Home Depot generously replaced it with a new one, and a month later, it is chipped, the edge is worn and the whole inside is "loose". I notice others have called Kohler, and they are not taking responsibility for this problem. As a contractor, I can only say, I am thankful I did not put one of these in at a customer's house!

Yup, the 'oil rubbed bronze' finish in the basket was actually black spray paint. First I was annoyed it didn't match the color of all the other expensive oil rubbed bronze faucets installed. Then it started flaking within a week of use. When I uninstalled the drains to replace, I found the o-ring missing on one of the stainers. I had to buy Kohler again (brushed nickel this time) because the other drains I initially bought were too small for the Kohler sink, so now I'm on my 3rd purchase and install! I was proud to buy this because it was stamped 'U.S.A' and I though buying the most expensive drain in the store ought to mean quality. I'm really disappointed. All that being said, the install was very easy, and it seems well built, as long you don't mind flaking paint and leaky drains.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by kohlerisabsolutejunk POC!
I bought these strainers on 2/1/12, the first one started peeling off the ORB and now the second one is doing so. I called Kohler and the representative advised it was due to pouring boiling water down the sink. I advised I do not pour boiling water down the sink and the CS Rep insisted the issue was due to me. I will never buy Kohler again! Absolute POC and horrible customer service when their product does not hold up. Really wish I could give this negative stars. I don't even feel it deserves one star.
