These handy sink strainers from Andrew James help to prevent smelly drains and blocked sinks by stopping the waste from going down your sink’s plug hole in the first place. By catching bits of food or packaging before they find their way into your drainage system, you can also avoid expensive plumber bills in the long run. Compatible with most of the commonly used kitchen sinks, a sink strainer is a great way to keep your kitchen sink clean and free from blockages.
How Does It Work?
When you have finished your washing-up, use the convenient little pin in the middle to lift up a fraction to allow the water to drain out. This central pin also allows you to lift the sink strainer out easily. The waste will then be captured in the strainer, making it easy to remove and dispose of accordingly.
While catching everything from noodles and sweetcorn to stray hairs, these kitchen sink strainers also double as a plug to ensure that your sink stays clear of blockages and unwanted smells. Simply press the sink strainer plug down in the centre to close the strainer holes and also form a seal between the rubber ring and plug hole, so you can fill up your sink just like you would with a normal plug.
Why Should I Choose this Sink Strainer?
With a sink strainer, you can avoid any expensive plumber call-outs. Robust enough for daily use, this handy tool from Andrew James is durable and easy to assemble. Unlike plastic strainers, this stainless steel version is easy to wipe clean and won’t stain or absorb smells. All you have to do is lift the plug out of the sink when it needs emptying of debris, while the rubber seal keeps all of the water in the sink when you want to use it as a plug.
With an external diameter of 8.3cm, and a 5.2cm rubber seal diameter, this high-grade sink strainer is compatible with the majority of commonly used kitchen sinks. However, please make sure to measure your sink and plug hole before purchase to be sure of the perfect fit. Measure the maximum basket diameter of the plug at its outer edge for further accuracy.
