Goofy Goggles (for tearless onion cutting)

Dorky Extraordinaire!!!

That’s what comes to mind when you see these-BUT-they really work!!! They have something that looks like weather stripping between the glasses and your face . Whatever it is, no more crying for you when you cut an onion.   And, for all of you aging dorks, you will need to wear your reading glasses in front of the onion goggles so you can see what you are doing-DOUBLE DORK!!!

 

Here’s a link to one of the ones we found:  Think Geek

 

So, now that your eyes are protected, it’s time to tackle that onion.

Here’s an item that will help make quick work of chopping and dicing.

Williams-Sonoma offers a great, handy, EASY and FAST way to chop up those pesky onions and lots of other veggies.  We’ve used this item for so many recipes and it’s cut our preparation time tremendously.  Not to mention the mess and tears!  To see them up close click here – CHOP and MEASURE

With a quick press of the hinged frame, this tool slices and dices hard and soft produce into a compartment underneath. The mini chopper (sold separately) is ideal for small vegetables like garlic, shallots, mushrooms and ginger.

  • Preps fruits and vegetables with a quick push of the lid, and the slices fall into a handy container.
  • The full-size cutter features four interchangeable cutters fitted with supersharp stainless-steel cutting grids; one grid makes slices and the three others produce 1/6″, 1/4″ or 1/2″ dice.
  • A clear plastic compartment below the full-size cutter measures up to 2 1/2 cups of cut produce.
  • The mini chopper slices on one grid and dices on the other.

Now, it’s time to put that onion to good use, so here’s a recipe for carmelized onions from Rachel Ray: http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipes/rachael-ray-magazine-recipe-search/appetizer-starter-recipes/Caramelized-Onions
