Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Onion Goggles
If you’re bothered by burning, itching, or watering eyes when you chop onions, you really need to try onion goggles!
I confess that for most of my life I was a bit of an onion-chopping snob. My eyes never seemed to bother me much when I chopped onions and I figured anyone who was bothered by the onion fumes had to be a bit of a wimp.
It wasn’t until I had eye surgery and no longer needed contact lenses that I realized that it was the contacts that kept the onion fumes out of my eyes all those years! Suddenly I could hardly chop an onion without my eyes burning and stinging. What is a food blogger to do?
Luckily I remember hearing about Onion Goggles (affiliate link), and after about my second or third time trying to chop onions with my newly improved eyes I ordered a pair from Amazon.com. The googles fit close to your eyes and have a foam layer around them so the onion fumes can’t get in, and they make an incredible difference, especially if you’re chopping quite a few onions at once.
I’m now a committed wearer of these amazing goggles that keep the onion fumes out of your eyes, and I decided I adore them so much that I should make them one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, where I recommend products I’d happily buy over and over again.
