LUMBERTON, NJ, November 2010 -BLANCO, German manufacturer of finely-crafted sinks and faucets, has unveiled its innovative 3-in-1 steel strainers. A great retrofit for existing sinks or as an accessory for new installations, the BLANCO 3-in-1 offers a deep strainer basket with engineered holes on the sides and bottom that keeps water flowing while it collects waste. An exaggerated lip makes it easy to pull up and empty without coming in contact with sink waste. And its quality stainless, dishwasher-safe design offers effortless maintainance. A one-touch, sure-seal lid securely lets homeowners fill and hold water in the sink without the inconvenience of turning, twisting or leaking.
"The number one complaint about strainers is the fact that they don't hold water," says Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. "You twist, you turn and still the water leaks out. And let's face it – it's just nasty to pull out the strainer to clean it. Our new 3-in-1 steel strainers reinvent the entire concept by making the basket deep and easy to maintain without having to come in contact with what's caught inside. And the one touch lid seals the drain securely without effort so you can fill the sink and keep it filled."
BLANCO's deluxe steel strainers perfectly complement existing or new stainless steel and SILGRANIT® II sinks and work with or without garbage disposals.
