Looking down on the bottom rack. These bowls do not nest well using the spindles, and actually take up more room that way.
Glasses not on spindles. They don't move. But Katherine, I hear you on alternating glass-plastic-glass when possible.
It's not necessary to keep the spoons in a separate compartment. Each utensil can have its own slot - see? No nesting (spooning?) going on here!
Katherine, these are just to unjangle your nerves. (But when I originally posted from my iPhone, "unjangle" autocorrected to "unhinge" so I must not be doing a very good job here.)
Other things about my dishwasher that may "unhinge" you:
- The little spinner in the tip top of the dishwasher that's supposed to spray water more effectively? That little 3-inch wide whirly thing? It broke at the beginning of summer. The top rack actually rinses better now than before.
- The detergent door doesn't stay closed anymore. Hasn't been a problem. But eventually I will probably need a new dishwasher and I will have to start all over figuring out how to load it.
