A: Hi Barbie, The only way we can describe our matte black finish is that it is black but it is not polished or shiny black. You will not see your reflection. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns by calling 1-866-591-7792 option 2 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are open from Monday-Friday, 8am - 5:30pm EST. Regards, Vigo Product Support
A: Dear Customer, To allow water to drain, you would lift the basket a little but it would not have to tilt to the side for water to drain. To stop water from draining, you would have to push the basket down. There is a little ball lock pin that keeps the basket from dropping or raising on its own. If you need more photos of the strainer, please send an email to email@example.com. Regards, Vigo Product Support
A: Thank you for your inquiry Mariale. The VIGO strainer model VGSTRAINERMB can be used with a cast iron sink. The sink would need to have a standard 3 1/2" diameter drain hole for proper installation.
A: Thank you for your inquiry William. VIGO faucets have a 7 layer finish and should not chip off the faucet. VIGO also has a lifetime warranty for the faucet finish.
