This basket is used on a large American Standard porcelain sink (three sections) and it fits well and serves the purpose of allowing the dish sponge to air dry on all sides. I expect some cracking will occur overtime as this is the nature of these wire coated items.
A fair price for a fairly good basket; time will tell on how long before cracking or rust occurs.
Update Two months later... The cracking and rust has started - not chronic yet; wouldn't buy another and looking for an alternative. I've downgraded my rating from 4 to 3 stars.
I love this basket, but I'm on my third one. It's large enough to hold a sponge and a small bottle of dish detergent. However, it melts (watch those hot pans) and cracks over time and then rusts. It'll last for about 2-3 years.
At first, this caddy appeared to solve the problem of utencils loose in the sink and sometimes falling into the garbage disposal. But I soon found there are a couple fatal flaws and I won't purchase it again. First of all, the openings in the basket are so large that the tines of the forks would stick through them and get lodged in there. It needs to be a finer mesh, but not so fine that particles gather in the bottom. Secondly, like other reviewers, I was dismayed to see the rust forming in the white coating. It is unsightly, so in the garbage it goes. I'm going to look for a stainless one that has smaller holes in it. I cannot recommend this coated wire sink basket.
