Put a slice of bread in your mouth.

Apparently, it's due to the smell so a peg would do better I think:thumbsup:

Breathe through your mouth and NOT your nose as the odour affects your nasal passages affecting your eyes.
works everytime for me much to the annoyance of the missus :thumbsup:

Didn't Brainiac say hold a piece of lemon between your teeth
#15
Simple solution....don't chop it! :lol:

Ain't there something to do with a spoon that prevents you from crying?
#17
bite on a spoon while you cut the onion
#18
the things that hurt your eyes are the particles given off when you cut the onion are spikey and hurt your eyes when they go into them
#19
Apparently if you put the onion in the freezer for 30 mins or so before you chop it then that's supposed to help.

make sure you use a very sharp knife, that way the gasses are not reased in the same way because of the clean cut,:thumbsup:

I wear glasses and/or contact lenses - when I wear my glasses I get affected by chopping the onion, but have no problems at all if I've got my contact lenses in.

When I teach food technology lessons at my school, it drives the kids mad that I can chop onions without having any problems...just so long as I have my lenses in!!
