Mike said: oh,no,you are wrong.I have found as below for this question(cut onions without crying?),it will help you,my kids.

Cutting onions under water or chilling them before cutting.

Some other suggestions people have mentioned for preventing tears when working with onions include:

Keep the root on while peeling and chopping. A variation of this is to cut from the top leaving the root end intact until the last cut!

Be in a well-ventilated place and cut fast!

Use a good, sharp chef's knife. It glides through the onion with ease, allowing less of the compounds that cause tears to come out.

Wear a pair of safety goggles or a cheap, disposable painter's mask.

Put a slice of bread in your mouth, with half of it sticking out to "catch" the fumes.

Put some white vinegar on the chopping board before cutting.

Burn a candle immediately adjacent to where you're cutting. The tear-causing gas is drawn toward the heat source.

Purchase pre-chopped onions.

After cutting the onions (and garlic), a suggestion that may help remove the smell from your hands is to run cool tap water over your hands while rubbing them across a stainless steel utensil, such as the bowl of a stainless steel spoon. If you have been cutting a lot of onions, this may not be as effective.

Other Answers:
wet the onoin first works for me.

cut them while holding under cold running water Try not to breathe in too close to the onion, that is why you tear up. I try to hold my breath for a few seconds, turn my head to breathe, and repeat. And keep a ceiling fan on. Sounds silly, but that all really works I promise.

avoid smelling the onions

Turn on the cold water, not sure why it works but it does.

Martha Stewart says to burn a candle near the cutting board as you cut to burn off the fumes that cause you to tear up. use a piece of bread lay the onion on top. try to get a yellow instead of white.

Cut them in the sink, next to a stream of running water.

The tasty ingredient in onions vaporizes and mixes with your tears (eyeball fluid) to form sulfuric acid.

The running water will take the vapor away.

submerge the onion into a bowl of water then do ur cut under the water. I love to cook but hate cutting onions. I always put on my ski goggles when I cut onions. It works great and I look great while doing it. :)

i put out a bowl of vinegar-white...while i chop and everyone who follows this hint is so impressed with how well it works

vinegar bowls are great for cigarette smell too...bought that stupid sharperimage...machine...what a waste....use vinegar and it works great! try wearing goggles
