    onion goggles.JPG When I see things like this, it makes it clear to me that I am out of touch. I guess when you dice 20 pounds of onions, it makes sense.

    A really thin sharp knife reduces the tears quite a bit. As a kid I can remember slicing up 50 lbs at a time and after a while the pain went away. I would have worn them.

    Soaking peeled onions while you slice, and splashing vinegar on your board, also breathing threw the mouth all help.

    Put your onions in the fridge for awhile, cold onions not as bad.

    I tend to think people who are bothered by onions are big ol sissies. Then I go to work that one day of the year in my glasses and cry like a baby. Contacts help a whole lot.

    I guess it's considered to dangerous now to just put plastic wrap around your head like the good ol' days.

    Depends on the exhaust system if the kitchen as well. Today I was crying but I needed eye drops every hour it felt like

    its not so bad if your knives are sharp and use smooth technique. i would probably laugh my ass off if i saw somebody wearing one of those things, at the same time i could completely understand if they would be overwhelmed without it.

    I'm getting that these are not widely used then.
