Mine came with sink, two metal plates for sink drain (as shown in pic) and two sets of clips (one for under-mount and one for self-rimmed). Don't know about under-mount, but for self-rimmed, factory said not to use clips (no screws included anyway - see my lengthy review of sink). Use silicon bead around rim.
If by "sink insert" you mean drain hardware, then the answer is yes. I mounted a disposal so had to get the appropriate drain and collar from HD to use with the two plates mentioned above. FYI, these two metal plates (one square and one drain transition) are sort of a lightly brushed stainless and would go with either stainless or brushed stainless.
The strainer basket is a bowl with holes in it that sits on top of your drain, flush with the bottom of the sink. It stops food, etc. from clogging your pipes or items (spoons, etc.) from entering your disposal. They can be lifted out of the drain easily to clean or to use the disposal. This sink does not come with one. They come in standard sizes. Purchase to match your faucet.
