I have found that putting lemon juice on my cutting board before cutting an onion keeps me from tearing up while cutting. Just pour some on the board take your onion, cut in half and make sure to put your newly exposed ends into the lemon juice. Then just cut like you usually would!

I was watching TV and viewing a cooking channel. He said if you cut the bottom of the onion off first, it releases the gases and 'no more tears", believe me it works! (04/07/2008)

Use Lemon Juice To Reduce Onion "Tears"

This is likely going to sound weird, but I haven't had one onion tear since I've had to wear eyeglasses. Wonder if either wearing any safety goggles you may have lying around in your toolshed or a pair of sunglasses would have the same result? (03/20/2010)
