Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Better than standard strainers
Since we have septic system we try to control what goes down the drain and don't have a disposal. This strainer works great and does not clog easily. Debris cannot get past it and the strainer basket stays in place. The stopper seals tight and is similar to those you use with a disposal. The parts that are visible are metal and match with stainless steel sink. The case is plastic, appears solid and fit well with PVC drain pipe, the all brass ones are considerably more expensive but a DIY can replace it in 1/2 hour or less.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Bad design, does drain well, holes too small spread too far apart
This strainer is terrible. It clogs up all the time. ALL THE TIME. And no, I dont wait unitl it fills up on top. You would think that side holes would help with drainage - well you are wrong. They clog up just as much. So you dont need a lot of junk your drain to clog it up. If you are using your sink to wash dishes, wash off plates before dishwasher - this is not for you. This drain is for people who hardly use the sink in actual every day life. Problem is with the holes being too small and spaced out too far apart. Notice, if you look at a $2 plastic drain from home depot - it does a better job because it has more holes. I tried to redrill the holes but stainless is so tough I burn out the bits. Well made with a bad design. What is the point of the strain basket being so big when even the side holes get clogged. Waste of money. Mine came with a sink. I had to go to home depot and get a regular sink drain. All these

I love this. I drain empty 2-liter bottles for recycling and this holds them upright perfectly. I really like the removable basket feature...who want's to put their hands into a dirty drain?!! The stopper seals perfectly. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spec The best deep basket strainer, DON'T buy the other one
If you're looking for a deep basket strainer, this is the one to get. Home Depot sells another "cheap" one with a deeper basket and chrome ring. That one has a fatal flaw. The sink part also has small strainer holes and they become clogged quickly, requiring constant cleaning by jamming your hand in there to much the crud through the little holes while you run the water. Between the holes getting clogged in the sink part and the holes in the strainer getting vlogged, it will begin backing up quite quickly.
This Kraus version has 3 big improvements over that. 1.) The fixed part of the strainer has large holes at the bottom allowing anything that gets past the strainer to easily flow down the drain 2.) the basket isn't so deep and doesn't fit all the way down into the bowl portion, again allowing for better water flow and 3.) it is tightened by a slotted hollow screw from the top, allowing you to snug it without getting back under the sink. When installing, be sure to use plumber's putty on the sink side.
The only negative I can think of is that it doesn't match the chrome basket I have on the other side of the sink. It is a little duller or muted. I'll have to find a basket for the other side that matches.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jkmj5866 OK...nothing special
I wouldn't spend the extra cash on... is nothing more then a deep sink drain....the only thing it does is allows you more space to fill with debris...still has to be cleaned...no better then standard

These fixtures are of the highest quality stainless and are beautifully made. Almost a shame to put them in the drain!
