I am super surprised by the weight of the kitchen sink strainers! I expected the strainers to be thin and almost weightless such as the ones I have purchased at a local store. But not with these. While they are thin, they have some weight to them which leads me to believe they will become as dinged up as easily. Which also means they will remain nice looking for a longer time. I love the stainless steel factor so they will always be shiny and look nice in the sinks. I plan on purchasing a set for my dad’s kitchen sinks also after the remodeling is done. I believe they are worth it.
