    The Ramsey character at the end was completely incompetent! Dicing an onion is so much easier than what he showed as the "right" method. You just need to have a brown paper bag, some crystals and a banana. Good God! Did he even go to culinary school!?

    I keep a box of disposable gloves in the kitchen and wear them when I cut onions. I hate how my hands smell from onions but love onions. Onions have lines on them, follow the lines and it's super easy.

    Try licking your finger and rubbing the spit under your eye. Keep under your eye moist the entire time. You shouldn’t cry while your cutting the onion. The juice in the onion is attracted to moisture. Trust me. You’ll thank me later.

    Seriously though...the chef says it kinda of quietly at the end. Keep your onions in the fridge, the low temperature removes [ or at least reduces ] the chemical reaction that causes the tears. If you have a fresh onion you need to use 10 mins in the freezer will have a similar effect.
