$700 dishwasher I ordered 3 weeks ago? It was finally delivered today. After the installers left, I opened up the manual to read the instructions. And, what did my eyes catch? A small item under the caption "Dishwasher Use" :Remember that
ALWAYS PLACE SHARP ITEMS POINTING DOWN. ALWAYS! That's pretty unequivocal.
Remember, this is the SUPERBA KitchenAid. I think that someone who manufacturers a dishwasher and gives it such a lofty name, just might know a thing or two about the proper loading of dishware. So, rather than tell Bill about this published detail, I believe I will just let him read it here.
