Dishwash Users..

When using your dishwasher, are you particular about your silverware..
Does it have to be facing down, up or whichever way it falls?

  • The instruction book says to put it facing up and to not put all of the same kind in any one space. Sharp knives I always put tip down so I dont stab myself getting it out. LOL

  • Knives down and all others scattered in each compartment (meaning one spoon up & one spoon down).

  • I'm also a knives down everything else up kinda peep. Mine get sorted by type in each compartment so that putting them away is more efficient. Some peeps say not to, that they don't come out as clean, because they tend to nest together, but I have never had an issue.

  • Down. Then when you grab to put away you don't grab the end you eat with. It's also safer when toddlers are round dishwasher.

  • ha! im not so picky its whatever way they fall in. knives i put up tho so you can readily see them and bigger knives i put int he top shelve with the cups. of course my silerware holder comes out and opens completely .

  • I put most of the silwear downwards because the handles on some are small and they end up going through the small holes of the silverwear basket,lol. So its just become a habit for me to put them all downward.
