Do You Struggle Chopping Onions?

Ask a Question

Do you have problems chopping onions that they make you cry? If so do you have any tricks that help. I know some people wear goggles or put a spoon in their mouth.

Yes - my eyes are so sensitive, I can barely be in the same room as an onion being chopped πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Iβ€˜ve been known to wear sunglasses and have all windows / doors open.. maybe need to invest in some onion chopping goggles

I chop my onions (half an onion at a time) and then cover the chopped ones with kitchen roll so that the 'vapour' that comes off them doesn't go in my eyes. It works quite well for me unless I am doing a lot of them - because the vapour is also on the chopping board. 🐞

Always use a sharp knife. 99% of the time this will aide with no crying. However, you still have moments where the pesky onion wins πŸ˜‚

My husband wears contact lenses and chopping onions don’t affect eyes.

It's not a good look but a piece of bread held, half in and half out, in your mouth works every time.

Keep onion in fridge prior to chopping. The colder the onion the better. Works for me.
