Eye irritation is common when cutting onions. This is not the first time that chefs have mentioned various techniques to avoid this situation, one of them being Spanish chef Zoe Barrie, who was quoted by La Vanguardia newspaper in which she gave an explanation .
“The key is to keep the knife as sharp as possible…the sharper the knife, the fewer fibers it breaks and the less tear gas is released,” he told the publication. Otherwise, when the quality of the knife is not good, it will burst more onion cells, thereby releasing more steam, causing more itchy eyes.
Using a sharp knife will not only shorten the time it takes to chop onions. Others recommend moistening with water or rubbing with a slice of lemon beforehand.
