Really?  I'm totally going to try that.  Does it matter if the candle is scented or not?

Quoting e-doolittle:

I am really sensitive to onions. This cuts down the intensity quite a bit.

Quoting mypbandj:

I heard that burning a candle helps with that problem.

Lol. That's cute. I cry, but not so bad that I don't chop onions.

Sharpen your knives.

We cry because the juice is flung back on us from the knives that we are using not actually slicing the onion but kinda squishing it. 

Sharpen the knives, and steel them as well to get off the burs of metal on the sharp edge. 

It will keep you from crying. I used to hate chopping onions, I would put a wet washcloth over my eyes and stick my head in the freezer for the longest time. I went to culinary school and ever since then I have yet to cry again. All because I steel my blades before use, and I keep them sharpened.

It does work. I don't cry at home with onions anymore either. I use onions a lot. Not in the past couple of weeks. Normally, I use about 6 onions in a week. Differing sizes.

The way we were taught to slice an onion also helps. You use less strokes of the knife. 

I'd have to look up a video of it though. Try youtube. If you don't find one, I'll see if I can find one when my son goes up for a nap in 3 hours and 20 minutes.
