I love cooking with onions but I don’t like that they often make me cry while cutting them. Here are Five Ways To Cut Onions Without Crying…
Here are a few tips for allowing yourself to cut onions tear-free.
Cut The Onions Under Running Water
The running water redirects the onion vapors away from your eyes, leaving you tear-free.
Freeze The Onion
Stick your onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you cut it. The cold keeps the onion from releasing it?s eye irritating chemicals.
Soak The Onion
Although this method makes your onions slightly milder, it works well in many foods. Just soak your onion in a bowl of water for about 15 minutes and then chop it. The water absorbs the onion’s sulfuric compounds, making their taste more mild and taking away the chemical release that causes your eyes to sting.
Cut The Onion Under a Vent or Fan
If your kitchen has a good overhead fan or vent, just turn it on and chop your onions underneath it. The fan redirects the fumes away from your eyes.
If the methods above aren’t working for you, you can try a pair of goggles. While there are goggles made specifically for cutting onions, a pair of cheap swim goggles work just as well. While it may not be stylish, this method keeps the fumes out of your eyes completely.
