Help! Cutting onions makes me cry!!

Cecilia | Feb 1, 2005 07:02 PM

Does anyone have tips on how to minimize the effect of the vapour from cutting onions? My eyes burn when I cut onions. I can only get through about a quarter of an onion and I have to stop and wash my eyes. I have tried freezing the onion. Sometimes I used my Mini Prep to chop the onion. I have even tried wearing googles, but that keeps me from seeing the onion very well.
