 Handles up, otherwise whoever empties it will be touching the eating end. Yuck!

Handles down except for knives.  They go point down in the knife slots.  When you put silverware in with the handles up, it allows for too much crowding and "spooning" in the basket.  So, things don't alway get cleaned properly.  At least with the handles down, you can separate them kinda like a bouquet of flowers so they actually get clean.
