The order of cutlery in the cutlery drawer. Should it go

A. Forks, knives, spoons


B. Knives, Forks, Spoons

Things have come to a head today after months of us both stealthily swapping them to the correct way, depending on who's unloading the dishwasher. I said I'd ask Mumsnet and whatever you say will be the way in future (even if it is the wrong way).

I have just got up to look what I have - spoon, fork, knife here!

B.) Is the correct way in our house.

Of course

LetThereBeCupcakes Sat 23-Apr-16 13:11:48

Definitely B. Why wouldn't it be?

Paffle Sat 23-Apr-16 13:11:59

Spoon, fork, knife

PinkParsnips Sat 23-Apr-16 13:12:02

B here!

Knife - Fork - Spoon - always

Seriously? There's a correct order of cutlery in a drawer??

AppleSetsSail Sat 23-Apr-16 13:12:40

I'd have to go and check in the kitchen which order mine is in, and it seems pretty far.

Surely the point of the cutlery drawer is to separate knives, forks and spoons, so there's no proper 'order'?

A. Anyone who says otherwise should no longer be allowed the vote. HTH. grin

magicstar1 Sat 23-Apr-16 13:13:08

Small spoon, fork, big spoon, knife

HoppingForward Sat 23-Apr-16 13:13:45

It's B of course

AliceInUnderpants Sat 23-Apr-16 13:14:09

B in our house.

chestnutmare Sat 23-Apr-16 13:14:36

A! Forks, knives, big spoons, little spoons smile

DramaAlpaca Sat 23-Apr-16 13:14:52

I do knives, forks, spoons.

Topseyt Sat 23-Apr-16 13:15:22

I didn't know there was actually a correct order for in the cutlery drawer. confused

RumbleMum Sat 23-Apr-16 13:15:47

I should say that it turns out it's actually B in our house, which is clearly why the cutlery drawer has been subtly bugging me for a while. Time to LTB as this is clearly DH's doing.

SisterMoonshine Sat 23-Apr-16 13:15:49

A. So that they are in the right position to plop straight onto the table.

FranksBobot Sat 23-Apr-16 13:15:55

Left to right - spoon, fork, knife, lots and lots of crap grin

iklboo Sat 23-Apr-16 13:17:06

Spoon fork knife

TakeItFromMe Sat 23-Apr-16 13:18:12

I'm A too - so they're in the order they would be on the table

DH is B, but his reasoning is weak: 'because you say Knife & Fork, not Fork & Knife'

I can see you're mainly Bs but you're all wrong 'uns so.
