Put the onion in the freezer for half an hour before cutting. Works every time!

I've also heard that the fresher the onion, the less trouble you have with this.

I'm with Piccolina...the food processor is the easiest and fastest. Don't just turn it on unless you want mush. Use the "pulse button" until they're the size you want.

You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.
