Onion Goggles: Love It Or Hate?

I've seen these onion glasses all over the food world recently and even found them in our very own Yum Market! Designed to protect your eyes from the tear inducing juices of a freshly sliced onion, these goggles form a seal preventing any irritating vapors from reaching you tear ducts. The website of the goggles that TeamSugar member CiaoBella bookmarked describes them as having a hip design. I totally disagree and think they're super geeky. However I can't help but laugh when I picture someone like Gordon Ramsay wearing them while he cooks. What do you think? Onion goggles: love it or hate it?

I love the idea, because for years I've been wearing my old chemistry goggles when I chop onions, and these are better looking.

i guess maybe i'd wear them if no one was around! i hate how much my eyes tear up. i even get teary when i cut green onions or shallots...guess i have super sensitive eyes or something.

Luckily I don't have to cut onions very often since I don't eat them, but when I do I could sure use something to help with the stinging. Ugh.

They are too hilarious to hate! I used to have a problem with onions but I think I'm pretty okay with them now. I don't cook with them often enough to use these glasses b/c I actually don't like onions.

When I was a little younger and I did catering for a friend's company, we had something like that (shop safety glasses) in the kitchen because one of the girls was very suceptible to the sulfuric acid from onions. Nothing helped her, but the safety glasses worked.

My grandmother taught me to slice off both ends of the onion... peel off the shell... and drop it in a bowl of cold water for a moment to kill off the fumes. Shake off the water then slice and dice... it has always worked for me.

It's a good idea. But, I don't think I'd buy them.

I try running cool water and it seems to help me to not tear up as much. I would use the goggles if I were an onion lover.

Could I be mis-remembering, or is there something about sticking a piece of bread on the end of the knife which one uses to cut onions -- and this helps reduce tears?

i suppose its useful for those with sensitive eyes or rarely does anything in the kitchen. of course those who's a pro need not wear it. even if now it looks geeky, perhaps in the near future they might come in style?

I think I need these for my husband. He tears up rather badly when cutting onions. I do think they look rather kool though. Cutting onions under water? That's a little difficult.
