Although it is a kinder and gentler world and it is sometimes okay for a Chef to cry, most will still tease you if the tears are from cutting onions.


We like RSVP Onion Goggles because they are comfortable, and they work. The also come in similarly stylistically challenged Pink or Red versions.

Culinary Uses

The reason our eyes sting once an onion is cut is because an enzyme (sulfoxide lyase) is released which combines with sulfuric compounds, and when these hit the air the stinging vapor is created. Onion goggles are an effective, stylistically challenged way to protect your eyes from stinging onion vapors.
