Cutlery Basket

The cutlery tray is designed to hold cutlery and utensils.

Removable anti-nesting grid

  • The anti-nesting grid clips onto the top of the cutlery basket.
  • Use the grid to separate cutlery items and stop them nesting together.

Loading

  • To reduce the risk of injury, we recommend loading knives and sharp utensils with handles facing up.
  • Mix spoons, knives and forks within each section to stop cutlery nesting together and to ensure the water circulates freely. Alternatively, use the clip-on anti-nesting grids to keep cutlery items apart.
  • Keep stainless steel from touching silver cutlery to avoid staining.

Removable small items container

  • Small, light items like baby bottle teats are best placed into the small items container to prevent them from being displaced during the wash.
  • You can extend your cutlery basket by clipping the container on its side.
  • To optimise the cutlery space within the basket, the small items container can be placed elsewhere in the basket. If laid flat, make sure the solid plastic side is facing up.
  • If you place a fully laden small items container under the cup racks, it is best to leave the rack space directly above the container empty: there may not be enough water reaching items that are placed there.
