Knives in the Dishwasher


Good thing I was just semi-groggy and not entirely still asleep while unloading my dishwasher this morning.

I looked down to find all of my knives and forks loaded into the silverware tray all facing upward, reminding me of Data from the Goonies falling into a pit of stalagmites and being saved by his "Pinchers of Peril."

Either I have been loading dishwashers incorrectly for my entire life, or one of my dinner guests on Saturday night was sending a message about how much they liked (or....disliked) the meal I prepared.

Umm. I think you've been loading your dishwasher wrong. The instructions for mine say to load forks and knives with tines or blades facing up. If you look at how dishwashers are designed, it makes sense they'd get cleaner that way.

Really?

Wow. It just seems so unsafe.

As the loader of the dishwasher that night, it's nice to hear that I may not be so crazy after all...
