Tips to dice an onion without crying

  • Make sure you have a well-sharpened knife in order to cut quickly and efficiently.
  • A sharp knife will cut cleaner slices and causes less of the onion’s chmeical compound to spread through the air. 
  • Onions contain a chemical compound that releases into the air and causes our eyes to water.
  • Cutting into a chilled onion is known to produce fewer tears than one that’s room temperature. 
  • Another tip is cut the onions last. You’ll spend less time in the kitchen with the diced onion if you do it last.
