Microwaving An Onion to Avoid Tears When Chopping ~ My Experience

I was watching Valerie's Home Cooking on the Food Network recently when she shared an extraordinarily simple way to avoid tears when chopping an onion...naturally, I had to give it a try...



The Method
  • Peel The Onion
  • Place on a plate or in a small bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds.
  • Remove from the microwave and chop!
Couldn't be easier!

I did experience a little watering in the eyes; however, overall, the method proved pretty tear free for me.

I used a Vidalia onion, so I don't know if the type of onion makes a difference as to whether you shed any tears or how many.

My conclusion:  I find this method worthwhile and the best I've tried yet to avoid tears when chopping an onion.  Enjoy!
