    Reprehensible knifework. Fine, not everyone has the time to learn the pro tips for every single activity in the world, but you don’t have to go to CIA to guess that you don’t hold the onion in your hand and come down with clumsy violent chops. It’s that defeatist “oh haha I’m terrible with this” attitude that tries to spin incompetence as cute as a defense mechanism - it in turn makes the performance even worse. If they just kind of thought for a second, ‘ok what is probably the best way to do this?’, they have it in them to do a passable job.

    How can an adult never have cut an onion? I use them in almost every recipe. Like I can understand not being able to cut a mango if you've never eaten one, or heck even not being able to cook an egg if you're vegan, but onions are absolutely essential.

    I feel soooo much better about myself while watching these videos with humans who don't know how to human. But the question has to be asked: where did you find these people? Same place as the 90's top shop actors who are bad at everyday life? Is there an agency which hires actors with no skills whatsoever? So much uncertainty

    someone used a damn butter knife to cut that onion. Also, tip if you wanna cut an onion with less tears, you can use oil on the blade

  • LauraK
    LauraK 28 days ago

    The chef did it wrong. That may be the way they teach you to do it in culinary school, but it doesn't make any sense. You don't need to do the horizontal cuts. In fact, it makes the size of your final product less uniform which causes some pieces to burn faster than others. This is because an onion is already layered. If you envision the layers and what the cuts do to them, this makes sense.
    All you need to do is cut a little bit from the top, cut it from the top to the root, peel the halves, take one half and lay it down flat, make cuts from the top to the root, but leave the root intact, then cut perpendicular to these cuts, repeat with other half.
