    To avoid burning eyes from onion. You can shall freeze the onion about 10-20 minutes before cutting them. After freezing them, you can cut the entire onion into several pieces. Then rinse the onion into salt water, and peel them by layer. And this way work perfectly. I often cut onion in this way and i won't get burning and watery eyes. You can have a try, too.
