Question Boiler Onion???

Does anyone happen to know what a boiler onion is? I have seen pearl onions in my local grocery store, but not boiler onions...are they the same?

Pearl onions are smaller. Boilers would be a little over an inch in diameter.

If you really want a treat, try some cipollini onions.

The boiler onions around here are generally sold in 2-lb or 5-lb mesh bags.
