Maybe because my old sink strainers were so crappy, or maybe because I had purchased sink strainers that seemed awesome but didn't fit, but I was thrilled with these sink strainers. First, they fit! I measured my drain before I ordered. Second, they are much sturdier than the sink strainers I just threw away. My old ones had a metal mesh, whereas these have a metal plate with holes. Much sturdier. Also, the holes are bigger so I'm no longer trapping minuscule garbage that doesn't need to be trapped and just clogs the holes. These sink strainers stop just the right amount of food waste. Would I buy these again? Absolutely! But I don't think I'll need to for a long, long time as they seem built to last.
