Everything down and they each have their own compartment so that it's easier to put away. My cutlery has a very thin end so if you put them up it means they partly fall through the grooves.

My dishwasher has cutlery baskets but I don't understand how you can put anything but knives eating end down. Mine is a cage type thing that you have to put things in handle first or they won't go in.
Your breaking my brain trying to figure this out!

The amount of food that gets trapped in the bottom of the basket is so gross that I could not even contemplate putting anything other than sharp knives handle up.
Dp and his mum just don't get it and the amount of times I have pulled hidden vegetables that missed being scraped off out from between spoons and forks is disgusting.
Oh and for some stupid reason mil always puts sharp knives blade up!

Oh I didn't even think of trying to remove the top. If my spoons don't get separated they don't wash. Joys of baby food mush.

Knives down, the rest up. Almost cut my hand open a few times when members of the household didn't listen when I asked them to put knives down. I know at the end of the day you should look first, but that doesn't always work for us un-coordinated folk.

meh, whatever way they fall in lol. I try to get them so the handles are down, so it actually cleans the actual fork/knife/spoons. Sharp knifes go on the top of the dishwasher laying flat. I think they get a gentler wash up that far too, so easier on the sharp knives.

There isn't a right or wrong way but I put all the cutlery facing down so that I (and others) don't accidentally stab themselves. MIL and partner do it the other way around.

I always put the cutlery (in the cutlery basket) so all are pointing up, knives included and each in their own compartment.
