A guide to buying a sink strainer

A sink strainer fits inside the drain area of your sink and prevents unwanted things from going down the drain. Whether you have a steel sink, stainless kitchen sinks or any other kind of kitchen sink, you will need to have a sink strainer to protect the drain from becoming contaminated and clogged. Unfortunately, buying a sink strainer can sometimes be overwhelming. There are many choices for kitchen sink plugs and sink strainers and buying the right one involves careful consideration of your cooking needs and lifestyle.

Function

The function of the sink strainer is the most important thing. Most sink strainers are simple tools that are just round metal strainers, which fit into the drain to trap food particles and other related items. However, in some cases, you may need a special sink strainer.

Materials

The make-up of the sink strainer is also important and you should think carefully about what materials might be the best ones.

Some people may, however, want to make sure that their sink drainer matches the other hardware or finishes in their kitchen. The properties of the material
For instance, if you have faucets with an oil rubbed bronze finish or a chrome finish, you may want your sink strainer to also have that same finish to achieve a cohesive look. Just be sure that you understand all of the properties of the material before you buy, since some types of metal used to make sink strainers are harder and more durable than others.
