  1. Your video is great; however, I have another onion problem. My eyes are super sensitive, and every time I begin to peel and chop an onion the tears also begin. I have tried all the various hints, but nothing has been successful. Do you have any recommendations? Thank you!

    • Mia you need to wear goggles or place your cutting board close to a large open flame when you cut the onion. The flame will burn the onion gases. Works great for me!
