    I will say that it's not hard to cut an onion when you have a sharp knife.
    If the knife is dull, it makes it worse.

    The professional chef didn´t do it quite perfect either. He should have rested the knife on his knuckles when slicing the onion to prevent injuries.

    For anyone who cries cutting onions: Keep your face back when you cut. Putting your face close to the onion is how you get a face full of tear-inducing fumes

    This is really sad. The fact that some don’t know how to cut shows they don’t cook. I don’t see no shame in that bc then you will just buy the stuff precut. Still I say it’s a good skill to have.

    Two tips for the chef himself:
    Tip #1Cut the onion's stem off first. That way you save yourself 1 cut in total - you remove it on one go instead of twice for each half.
    Sounds trivial, but when you cut hundreds of them, it adds up.
    Tip #2 It's a santoku, not a chef's knife. Google it.

    Try to stick your tongue out while cutting it. The onion triggers the first thing on your face with liquids. Hiii Kwisteen ( Mcatee )

    Light a candle while cutting onions and they won’t make you cry. The candle warms the air and causes the gasses coming off the onion to rise up fast instead of lingering in your face.

    You don't actually have to cut the onion horizontally. Since they already have natural layers, just make vertical cuts, and the dice it.
