Do you cut the onions first or cut it last?

When chopping vegetables and whatnot, do you usually cut the onions first or last? For me I cut it last so it doesn't make me cry as much

  • If the onions are making you cry, it's because your knives are dull. A sharp knife won't bruise the onion and cause the burny thing.

    • Try cutting an onion in 2 halfs and washing them in warm water. You'll wash away the burning thing. Now you continue cutting.

    • @Bimbobambo no, it literally means your knives are too dull. Properly sharpened knives are essential in the kitchen and prevent injury.

  • It depends what I'm cooking. Some things taste better browned with onion or if the onions are put in first for flavor. Other times it's better to let the harder vegetables cook before adding the onions.

  • First, so I can fry it all by itself in the pan before everything else.

  • My aunt puts onions in a bowl filled with cold water. If you do that too, your eyes won't water.

  • YES! My time to shine! I chose other BECAUSE if you wash your onions with warm water before you cut them, you won't cry! Maybe cut it in half and then wash each half, you won't cry from 1 cut right?
