Slicing Onions Without Tears
Onions have been a part of my cooking for 50 years, and I'm still amazed at those who cannot cut one up without getting runny eyes. Here is how I avoid that.
Top and tail the onion without removing the outer skin. Halve it top to bottom, and place each half cut side down. One half at a time, remove the skin and chop or slice the onion, still "cut side" down. That's all. Doing that will avoid streaming eyes almost entirely. Mine have been free of it for many years.

I store my onions in the bottom of the refrigerator, you'll never get streaming eyes, try it, it's guaranteed to work.
