No More Sobbing While Slicing

Oniongoggles In her latest "Food Stuff" column in the New York Times, Florence Fabricant points to these Onion Goggles which promise to prevent crying in the kitchen -- over onions, at least --  by placing a barrier between thiopropanal sulfoxide, the irritant released by onions when cut, and your eyes. While the breathe only through your mouth and not your nose method has always worked for me, these specialized spectacles might come in handy if prepping a large volume of onions (that is, if you can stand the nerd factor while wearing them). $19.99 in black or white at The Cook's Warehouse.
