How To Not Cry When Cutting Onions

How to avoid crying when slicing an onion

I don’t really cry that much when slicing onions, but occasionally I’ll get a super potent onion and these tips have really seemed to help lesson the tears.

How to Avoid Crying When Slicing and Onion

1. Use a very sharp knife. The sharper your knife, the less you will have to hack away at the onion and break down more of the cells.

2. Chew extra Minty Gum.

3. A sweet friend, Lisa Anderson, recently told me that she places a whole piece of bread in her mouth so that none of the onion hits her nose. I’d heard this one before, but never knew if it actually worked.

4. Purchase Onion Goggles. πŸ˜‰
