I think up he thinks down...what do YOU think?

I load my silverware with the eating part upright and my hubbs likes them down. He says they poke him otherwise. Knives go down with me too but everything else is up to get clean..

  • in my dishwasher you have to put the handles down bc you have to stick them through the little slots. i guess your hubby wouldn't like that lol. with my old dishwasher i did put the eating part down and always had problems with them not getting clean. now i don't have that problem so i agree with you!

  • I load them like you do. The eating part goes up, except knives go down, but we don't eat off of knives, so it's OK.

  • Everything up except for sharp knives. I just think the silverware gets cleaner that way.

  • Knives down, everything else up. I've also heard that you should alternate up and down on spoon so they don't nest but that's never been much of an issue for me and it would be a pain to unload. I load all knives together, all spoons together, and all forks together so I can unload them by the handful.
