Any way you cut it, slicing an onion isn’t fun.
Every time I cut them, my eyes gush like Niagra Falls. (My eyes are tearing up just thinking about it!)
How can one innocent vegetable cause so much pain?
I was ecstatic when I found this simple way to cut an onion into large chunks in two seconds flat.
All you need is a common kitchen utensil: an apple slicer!
Don’t have one, try this one on Amazon.
1. Remove the outer layer of skin from the onion
2. Place your onion on a cutting board or other similar surface.
3. Press down on the slicer like you would an apple.
Voila! Instant onion slices.
I would recommend stepping away immediately to let the fumes dissipate before handling to cut down on the tears.
