The Dearborn Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink Mesh Strainer prevents clogging in your sink with anti-clogging technology. 2 mm. holes are drilled into the strainer to allow food particles to be collected and water to easily flow through. Unlike mesh strainers that can be easily clogged or tear, causing harm to hands reaching into sink basins, the edge-to-edge covering process of this strainer enhances the look of your sink. Constructed of stainless steel for rust-free and non-deforming long-term use, the strainer has a large 4.5 in. diameter that fits standard kitchen sink drains. The strainer is also dishwasher safe or can be cleaned with warm water and soap to maintain a shiny look. Dearborn is known for providing superior quality and products designed with the plumber in mind.

The repetitive use of harsh cleaners or drain cleaners can lead to the degradation of the basket strainer finishes. To avoid this, mild cleaning agents should be used or cleaning chemicals should be quickly removed from the surface of the strainer. Remember to also use soft sponges or cloths to clean the strainer, abrasive scrubbing pads can also scratch the finished surface.
Should silicone or plumbers putty be used when installing a basket strainer?
Either product is compatible with our brass and stainless steel components, but this may not be true of the sinks that they are being installed into. You should always check with the sink manufacture to seek their recommendations on sealant. If the sink is a porous material, the regular plumbers putty may stain the surface. Refer to our FAQs in category 4 for some surfaces that regular plumbers putty should never be used with. You should only use silicone to seal our plastic strainers, the use of plumbers putty will cause fatigue failure.
