knives, blade down. spoons, some up some down so they don't "nest" glasses on top, plates, etc on bottom. i don't put pots in dishwasher. take up to much room and don't get really clean

I do mine knives down, everything else up. Now if I could just convince my brother of doing the same thing! That way if there are any spare pieces of food that do end up in there you are not scraping them off the useable ends of the fork (such as the tines) or spoon.

Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.

Handles up unless the utensil doesn't fit that way. Been doing it like that for many, many years. I make a point of separating spoons when I put them in.

My good knives don't go in the dishwasher, so that isn't an issue.

Knives down, everything else up safety reasons, but most of the time I wash the knifes by hand and put them away as soon as they air dry.
