How to Chop an Onion Without Crying

Why do we cry when we chop onions? Well, onions naturally produce a gas known as "Propanethiol S-oxide"—which triggers tears.

Here are our favorite tips to stop the crying:

  1. Freeze the onion prior to cutting
  2. Keep the sliced side facing the cutting board
  3. Keep a piece of bread in your mouth (we're not kidding)
  4. Use a super sharp knife
  5. Cut below the oven vent
  6. If all else fails...wear goggles!
