Finally a sink strainer that really works, keeps most things out of the drain, which I am very particular about.. Love it and will definitely buy more. Cannot find this product elsewhere, so hope you keep it in stock. It is very well made and reasonably priced!
May 21, 2017
Works fine!
I use this in my kitchen sink. I needed it because I have a garbage disposal and wanted to prevent stuff from accidental dropping into it.

Keeps food out of my septic system
I have been using these for years. I like them because they stick right into your kitchen sink and they keep food from going into your system and they're very easy to clean their durable I can't complain, had to have more

sink drain screen
I use the product so that when I clean my fish bowl my fish won't go down the drain.

Best, most attractive sink drain cover
There isn't a nicer model anywhere. I always buy extra in case they stop making them.
Dec 27, 2016
Don't waste your money
As I said above, the edges do not sit flat, so small things just slip under and into the drain.....useless!
Jul 29, 2016
Too expensive
too expensive and found a place where I get four for the price of one and not even one from this website, I kept two and gave my mom the other two which she always uses. When the website charges what they used to charge, then they will gain my business again.

It is very hard to get anything out of it.
Mar 06, 2016
there is NO strain when using this strainer
very easy to install & clean
Feb 20, 2016
Happy with it overall.
It serves its purpose. The wire basket was a little large but I bended it to make it fit. Works well.
Jan 15, 2016
A Super Saver
We ordered two. Then my husband showed it to the neighbor and gave him one. Husband said we need to order more as back-up. The best sink "accessory"!
Jan 10, 2016
I will buy this product again.
Great for my kitchen sink no clogging.

[2892-1] Sink Strainer
Left side of the kitchen sink. Sink never clogs up. N/A
Sep 11, 2015
I would buy this product again and again because it works!
I use this product on both sides of my kitchen sink and would not be without it!
Sep 11, 2015
best invention
Love, love, love it. I have had this product in the past and when they finally tore up I looked everywhere in local stores and could not find the same product. I love the wider rim. I ordered 3 sets and gave two away to my daughter and my sister. I will be ordering more soon. Only thing is that a wire could be loose at the rim and it hurts very bad if you touch it.
Jun 20, 2015
I really like this produce & it works.
Easy to install - just take sink stopper out (kitchen is where I'm using it) and replace with Sink Strainer. My sister bought two also & uses them in her kitchen sink & really likes them.
Jun 15, 2015
I am so happy this product was created
I love this product. My daughter was constantly stopping up my kitchen sink even though I had a strainer in there but the strainer was nothing like this product. This product is mesc which catches everything and prevent food from going down the drain. My sink has not been stopped for over a year now. I will continue to keep a supply of these sink strainers be use it is a money saver.
Jun 11, 2015
Very pleased with the sink strainer, it catches everything.
Put the sink strainer in the sink
Jun 01, 2015
works great.
This is the best little strainer of all I've used. The chrome perimeter guides even the smallest particles into the strainer. Nothing seems to get stuck under the rim.
May 31, 2015
A Good Idea That Works!
The sink strainer is perfect for those drains, i.e., disposal, where one is not ordinarily provided by the manufacturer. This item is an exact fit and is of a bright stainless finish. It remains to be seen how well it holds up over, say, two years and if it retains its finish.

Worth The Money

Strainers add pizzaz to my kitchen sink
My sink is very old so the strainers are nice looking and practica.
Jan 03, 2015
I would buy this product again and again
Bought other strainers, buy1/get one, (going on for years) didn't fit properly, food would go around edges., This product is perfect, can't find it in local grocery stores., I will be ordering more ! THANKS ! Problem solved.
Nov 10, 2014
Great tool!
Sometimes food can stuck in the edges, an old toothbrush works great to solve that problem.
Nov 01, 2014
Do not use
The items looked nice in my sink but when I went to clean it the edges all around are sharp and unfinished that I sliced two of my fingers open. I literally bled out. A wasted $8.98 is in the garbage!
Oct 23, 2014
Works Great
Handy! It does exactly what it is suppose to do...stop the muck from going down the drain.
Aug 17, 2014
Smart Idea
Made my grandmother very happy to catch the food from stopping up the sink.
Aug 14, 2014
Fits great and works great
Catches small pieces and cleans easy. Wide band is a great design
Aug 10, 2014
does what it's designed to do!
Had been looking for sink/drain strainers at local stores and couldn't find what I was looking for. Have bought several strainers that were more decorative than functional as they weren't 'stainless steel' but wire mesh and enamel painted. This item seems to be better made of better material. Time will tell. If they last I'll buy'em again when they do finally do wear out! I'll let you know if and when that happens.
May 14, 2014
Tiny particles not going down sink drain
Now I don't need to call the plumber to unclog my drains
May 13, 2014
Works perfectly, looks even better
Fits perfectly, looks better than the existing, easily used, easily cleaned. PERFECT & EFFECTIVE
May 02, 2014
Handy device
I ordered/use two in my double kitchen sink. It blends in with the stainless steel sink. Can be washed by hand or in the dish-washer.
Apr 26, 2014
What a GREAT Idea!
This universal sink strainer is TRULY universal! It fits my sink and catches everything that should not go down the drain! LOVE it! What a GREAT idea! It's easy to clean--just pops in the dishwasher, or you can wash it by hand. Other strainers didn't fit, but this fits PERFECTLY! I bought two because I love it so much!
Mar 31, 2014
Helps sink look cleaner
Looks good, stays put, easier to clean.
Feb 26, 2014
Perfect fit
This sink strainer is the perfect fit to my kitchen. This strainer catches the smallest piece and keeps it from going down the drain. I highly recommend this product to anyone. I am so glad that I decided to try it.
Feb 20, 2014
A sink strainer that actually works
Searched every local hardware and big box store to find a wide rim sink strainer. Finally found it in your catalogue - thanks - love it!
Feb 16, 2014
good for pipes
I like the way it traps even the smallest crumbs and particles which may be benefical to help avoid plumbing problems
Feb 08, 2014
Excellent Strainer
This strainer does the job! Fits well into the drain and catches everything. East to clean -- tap the contents into the garbage can and use an old tooth brush to clean out the mesh.
Jan 28, 2014
Best thing ever bought.
I use it instead of the other drain cover, because it catches every thing,and dosen't let even the smallest piece get through.
Dec 22, 2013
Best strainer for kitchen sink
This strainer fits the drain perfectly. It does not dislodge when running the water. I have bought these strainers for everyone in my family. I like that it collects all debris, ensuring I'll have no backed up pipes.
Dec 19, 2013
Good quality product
Does a thorough job os screening. Beveled edge creates a quality seal on the edge preventing any food from getting through on the edge like other products I've used. Fine mesh is durable and easy to clean. I'm very satisfied with this product.
Nov 30, 2013
Very valuable item.
This product can be easily cleaned by using an old toothbrush. Simply flip the screen over above the garbage bag, and tap the screen with the toothbrush until the screen is clear.
Nov 29, 2013
Works well, but too well
The strainer does work well, but maybe too well. The holes are so small that it easily gets clogged (even a small amount of applesauce will clog it). It is generally easy to remove the strainer, and dump its contents, but often I need to turn it upside down and pour water through it. It would be nice to have one with slightly larger holes
Nov 23, 2013
Universal sink strainer
The Universal sink strainer works very well*I've been using this for 13years. However, after It catches the food you need to rinse It out with hot water fast or else It will mend Into the mesh screen and become hard to get the food out* I would recommend this to everyone*
Nov 04, 2013
Great sink strainer!
I use this in my double sided kitchen sink. It fits well, looks great, cleans well, and most of all helps to keep my drain clean and pipes unclogged. Love them!
Nov 02, 2013
Plumber preventative
Can't say enough about this strainer - Have been using it for several years. I recommended it to Landlord to help keep drains free of debris because it WORKS! Excellent to help keep the plumber away!
Nov 01, 2013
Best kitchen sink strainer there is!
This is the only sink strainer I've ever found that doesn't "float" on the water when you have your sink full of dirty dishes & are trying to rinse all the food off of them. LOVE IT!
Oct 21, 2013
Good product-Strainer
Much better than the plastic one I tried before finding this version. The plastic stained and was hard to keep clean. We have septic so I try to be careful what goes down my drain. This seems to do the trick.
Oct 09, 2013
Love it
I love this product. I have an older home with aging plumbing. I have not had any clogs, etc since I started using these strainers. Love them!
Sep 28, 2013
Love it!!
This product keeps the smallest particles from going down the drain. To clean it, bang it inside of the garbage can to get most stuff out. Rinse the last, and only a few particles down the drain by turning the screen upside down under running water. Use a toothbrush with hot water and soap every once in a whole to clean the screen of grease and such. Soak the whole thing in denture cleaner if it becomes dull looking. This has saved us a lot by keeping so much garbage from going down the drain.
Sep 15, 2013
I would buy this product again and again
Love the product, buying another set. One for me and another for my Grand-daugther.
Sep 07, 2013
Just right
Fits very well in the sink drain. It's slightly raised but fits well enough that stuff doesn't try to go under the screen. Need to wash bottom side, easy to forget this. Glad I got it.
Sep 01, 2013
Fantastic Product
now I know what I was missing. My old strainer wasn't catching everything, now I am. A must have item if you are a cook. Glad I got it, would recommend it to everyone.
Aug 22, 2013
Great Product
These fit perfectly and capture all items that should not go down the drain to the septic system. They are easy to clean.
Aug 14, 2013
Poorly Designed
These arrived (I bought 2) and I immediately sent them back. The edges are raised (poor design) and the water does not drain all the way from my basin. Whomever thought that a 1/8 raised edge was a good idea should be canned. The screen material was frayed and sharp around the edges. Very poor quality.
Jul 29, 2013
attractive,easy to take care of
the crome finish blends well with a metal sink. Easy to place and easy to clean out and place back.
Jul 09, 2013
'Please don't quit making this product"
This is a must have in your kitchen, fits GREAT around the drain hole. I wouldn't spend your money buying anything else they won't fit near as snug. The only con I can express is that I have to get a brush to clean the bottom out and this doesn't happen to often. The first pair my daughter bought for me was over 2 years ago & I am now replacing those....
Jun 24, 2013
I buy these every time I need replacemen
While you have to spray a little bit more to clean them out of yucky stuff, these are wonderful for our kitchen because of the wider lip on it. We went to every place looking for these and even brought home one from the Dollar Store. Problem with the cheap ones was that they weren't flat to the drain and food just got under the lip and into and down into the drain anyway. I pray they never quit selling these.
Jun 13, 2013
A nessessity in MY kitchen !
Because of the design of my condo, my kitchen sink drain collects gunk, and clogs frequently. This product looks attractive and does what it's suppose to.
May 11, 2013
simple yet necessary
can't remember what it's like not to have one. a necessary part of my kitchen.
May 01, 2013
Just a great (simple) product!!
I have been using your strainer for years, and it still is fine, but just in case I ordered three more, and gave one to my son & wife.
Apr 11, 2013
great product
used in my kitchen sink, really great, got some extras and gave them to a couple of friends, they are really happy; great product.
Apr 10, 2013
Useful Item
I keep two on hand; one in use while the other is in the dishwasher.
Mar 31, 2013
Excellent product,
It looks, fits and performs well.
Mar 22, 2013
good product
Keeps drain free from clogs.
Mar 19, 2013
I'll never go without again
I thought I was very careful about not letting food particles go down the drain, but after many, many bottles of drain cleaner I knew I had to try something else. In the past month and a half since using these we have had no problem. I know my plumbing has issues (we rent)and I think we may have solved one of them.
Mar 13, 2013
Perfect Item
I first bought the strainer at the grocery store. I have old pipes and my kitchen sink would stop up OFTEN. I got the strainer and haven't had a back up since. Not even a slow flow. Lately it's been hard to find in the stores anymore, then I happen to see it in Harriet Carter. I bought two; it works great and lasts a long time.
Mar 01, 2013
works very well
This strainer works very well. I've tried(and wasted a lot of money on) many many strainers and they all let too much food into the drain...either by the holes being too big or the rim not fitting well enough...this one fits in the sink perfectly. The design is perfect where it doesn't let food underneath the rim. I would gladly buy this strainer again and again as they wear out. If you have a drain problem and cannot get food in your drain, you will be happy with this strainer.
Mar 01, 2013
Great Product
This is my 3rd one love them even get my mom them helps not getting any food down drain. Not cheap like the thin ones you can get in the dollar store I only buy these
Feb 28, 2013
Great particle catcher!
Amazing amount of food particles caught in the strainer; saves clogged pipes!
Nov 17, 2012
I use it to block large particles of food from going down and drain and causing major problems. Also to not allow pieces of food to go into the trash compactor. I avoid using more power with trash compactor.
Aug 28, 2012
Best sink strainer ever
I have to replace my sink strainer now - after 8 or 9 years of use. But not, because it fell apart or became rusty. No, I dropped a big heavy knife - tip ahead - and now it has a hole! Fortunately, a) I purchased 2 of them, b) I still remembered where I kept the 2nd one. *lol* This product is so awesome, I am a tea drinker and it collects the smallest little bits and pieces. You don't need to worry about a clogged drain anymore. Best quality, no rust, no wear or tear. Put it sometimes in a vinegar/baking-soda solution and it looks like new again!
Aug 05, 2012
Everyone needs this
The best sink strainer ever, and I have tried them all. Perfect fit, traps the smallest bits, easy to clean, looks great. Everyone needs one.
Jul 17, 2012
Great little strainer
When my daughter saw it had to buy her a pair. Greatest little strainer fits perfectly and nothing gets past it. I now don't worry about clogging my drains or septic system.
Apr 13, 2012
It is effective and efficient. Keep it in the drain all the time except when washing dishes. I never have to worry about ANYTHING going down the drain except water! Wish I had purchased it years ago. Never want to be without one of these again.
Apr 12, 2012
Would buy this product again
easy to use - catches small debrie that could cause clogs over time
Mar 28, 2012
Great product
I wish I had known about this product work so well, I can not believe I finally found something that work. I do not have a disposable for my drain so all the particles some how find their way into the drain and the clogging start. My only problem is that I found this same product $2.00 cheaper from another company and will order from that company ,but will still order other products from Harriet Carter.
Mar 01, 2012
Sink Strainer
Does exactly what it's designed to do and does it well.
Feb 24, 2012
very useful
we use it in our 2 sinks in kitchen. the mesh screen was to long going into our sink. thereby causing it not to seat properly. so i push the screen back toward the top. now it fits great. it sure will save on any promlem about crud build up in our pipes.
Feb 20, 2012
Works great!
Great to keep sink drain clear.
Feb 14, 2012
Great product
If you have plumbing problems this thing is great. Even if you don't have plumbing problems, you don't have to worry about stuff going down the drain. Filters out even tiny seeds. Some people complain about rust. Mine have not rusted, but I do clean them out often. Simply turn it upside down and give it a little whack against the side of the garbage can. Although cheese doesn't come out as easily, it can be wiped out with a paper towel.
Jan 24, 2012
I had been looking for a sink strainer for quite some time and have wasted loads of money on strainers that just did not work - that prevented water from going down the drain and didn't catch the debris.
Dec 11, 2011
Works very well.
Works as expected.
Nov 09, 2011
Great product!
Attractive, and really helps protect cesspool by stopping everything from going down drian. The delivery was very fact.
Nov 06, 2011
strainer works perfect in my new sink
the product fits greatin my new sink. But you have to clean under it regularly or you get rust deposits. The cleaning takes a little practice
Oct 17, 2011
Fits in RV sinks too
I bought 2 of these strainers for use in my kitchen & to have the 2nd one as a spare since we have a garbage disposal on one side. It looks so much better than those standard sink strainers where the rubber underneath gets gross with mildew and grime, plus it catches a lot more debris. Also we had just purchased a new RV travel trailer & decided to see if these would fit in that sink & it did! Since we don't have a garbage disposal in the RV I ended up using both of them, one in each side of the sink. So...I'm back online to buy 2 more for the house sink! Not sure how long they will hold up but I'm sure I'll be buying these for years to come. They are very affordable & could possibly save you from having septic, sewer or plumbing problems. Too bad they don't make them to fit bathroom sinks to keep out hair plus jewelry wouldn't end up going down the drain!
Oct 02, 2011
no thanks
It worked very well and then it rusted. Perhaps it should be cleaned and removed all of the time.
Sep 27, 2011
I would buy this product again
i use this item in the sink so nothing goes down the drain.
Sep 24, 2011
I like this product,
It works well for me it will last longer than others I have used.
Aug 19, 2011
catch all
catches most of the food particles befor going down the drain.
Aug 11, 2011
I have this item and replace it often!
I do like this item, but I have had to replace this item several times. It starts to look rusty and dingy...but I do send for another one!
Aug 09, 2011
Keep your kitchen sink draining
Buy it, Try it.
Aug 07, 2011
It works very good
The plastic protection cover on the sink stainer. You have to tell your husband to remove the plastic protection cover to let it drain the water out.!!! Ha! Ha! It was to funny.
Aug 03, 2011
Sink Strainer
Works as advertised.
Jul 16, 2011
Excellent buy!
Sinks should come with these built in. No more clogged up sink from garbage slipping through.
May 18, 2011
Works great, just what we need.
Use to stop unwanted item from dropping into the garbage disposal. Has a better drain flow than the regular sink strainers..... Only time will tell how durable this strainer is.
Apr 27, 2011
Universal Fit
Like the crome finish. Made a nice addition to the sink. Now I don't lose items to the disposal.
Apr 25, 2011
Works very well !!
I'll buy more for gifts..they are great !!
Apr 15, 2011
Sink Strainer
I have ordered two for our Church & also my kids houses. They are the greatest! No more clogged drains!!

Mar 29, 2011
I would buy this product again and again
I use these sink drainers all the time. I love them especially because I have no garbage disposal. They stop everything from going down the drain.
Mar 12, 2011
Great kitchen aid

Sink Strainer
Good overall design, will wait to see how it holds up.
Mar 01, 2011
Great PRoduct - Great Price
This product is wonderful and I would recommend to all. [...]
Feb 24, 2011
2nd chance
I purchased sink strainers from another company and within a couple of days they rusted. So far,these are holding up pretty good.
Jan 11, 2011
Works great catching the littlest bits in the kitchen sink and catching all the hair and soap debris in the bathtub drain. I have to use it upside-down over my bathtub drain plug and anchor it down with two shampoo bottles on each side of its rim to keep it secure while the shower water runs. The mesh strainers catch everything even while upside-down! Only drawback from giving a 5-star rating is that you must clean and dry it immediately after use to keep from rusting. Haven't had one rust yet and haven't had to call a rooter service in over a year.
Dec 05, 2010
It can rust
it works great, now if it just wouldn't rust it would be wonderful. I would buy another one to replace the rusted one.
Nov 10, 2010
very happy
I've bought a lot of strainers and none compare to the good job & good looks. Fits & looks like it was built in.
Oct 11, 2010
Sink strainer
These strainers have saved my garbage disposal from getting harmful food going down.
Sep 13, 2010
Neat Idea
This sink strainer has saved us a fortune in drain cleaners and plumbers. True, it can be tedious to clean, but that's less gunk going down the drain!
Sep 12, 2010
The design does not allow scraps to get by but makes them flow over the ridge and into the strainer making it perfect for deep sinks.
