When your slicing onions wear glasses, I wear sunglasses. It doesn't burn your eyes as bad.

    I hate the tears too! One awesome thing about cutting onions: breathing in all those "cry chemicals" through your nose as you cut the onions is an awesome cold/flu fighter!

    bread does work!^ also when and if you do get teary you can put bread on your eyes to draw out the sting... but best of all i have learned that only breathing through your mouth avoids the tears all together. i love onions..... i hate tears :)

    Put a small piece of bread under your tongue while slicing your onion. Sounds weird, but works more tears!!
