    Nope. Couldn't adjust the height. And it really didn't hold much at all.
    Only really small bowls, custard cups and the like. The silverware caddy
    didn't hold enough of my silverware so I had to wash some by hand and the
    larger spoons wouldn't fit in there. It was a joke.

    That's what I had to do too, but they often would fall down to the bottom
    and burn on the element so I started washing them by hand.

    When I replaced my old dishwasher I specifically looked for the
    silverware in the door, I love that. I'm not knocking your new
    machine, Julie, I'm happy you like it. Just that my experience with
    dishwashers is that silverware thing in the middle takes up too much
    space. I can fit all the silverware I want in my door model, and the
    larger stuff (much larger, like mixing spoons, ladles) fit on this little
    fold down shelf over the cups.

    Otherwise, I have been known to lie the large things across the
    top of the cups/glasses ... if you place them across among those
    items, they do not fall through. You just have to take a little
    care how you arrange them.

    I love the "new" tall tub designs, you can fit so much more
    than previous machines. I don't bother adjusting the upper
    rack, it's deep enough to hold whatever I want and I'm not
    inclined to put much large stuff up there.

    <Nod> That's what I do with most of the larger serving items and mixing
    spoons. Even though they do fit into the upright flatware holder, they
    don't wash very well there. So I lay them down in the top rack, and to
    keep them from being knocked down I position cups or bowls on top of
    their handles.

    When it's time to replace my dishwasher, I want one of the tall tubs.
    Until then, the machine I have does fine.

    It's a basket that easily lifts out ... as a matter of fact there is a
    place on the bottom rack where I could also put it. That
    place is where I put glass baking dishes, though.

    That's what I assumed from your description.
