Nope. But the tray is small. Just checked, our knives fit (but just) and our forks have about a cm room to spare. If you google ''average length cuttlery' you can compare yours to average sizes. Sure your tray is the standard one?

Always figured ours is original, but wasn't sure because we bought our van second hand. Just took a photo for you though and found the original VW-sticker on the bottom. Might be useful for reference. But there are also several alternatives you can buy. See photo's below.

I believe the club shop sells this one. It might give you just a tad more room, sinc ethe slots are diagonal.

Seems like the original as well. (This photo is from the internet).

I removed the original and now use a small plastic tray for cutlery and then have the rest of the space for wooden spoon, spatula, chef knives etc. I can now fit way more in there. It initially niggled me that I didn't have a beautifully laid out drawer with items in separate slots but I quickly got over myself :)

Oh yes glad it's not just me.

Bought some new cutlery from dunelm and they are all too long for the cutlery draw. Ended up using my old set from home that was considerably more expensive. But they fit perfectly.

Cali now sold
Never had a problem with the cutlery tray and used an Ikea box lid as another pull out work surface (sorry can't remember which one but plenty of info on here)

Is it an office? Is it a lounge? Is it a camper?
