You all are so knowledgeable I thought I would pose this question to you. It's about an onion cutter. I can cut onions very efficiently but since I use them a lot in recipes, I would benefit from a cutter like one of these. My question it which one would you buy:

Alligator Onion Cutter & Chopper
http://tinyurl.com/ff5cb/

Genius Onion and Vegetable Cutter
http://tinyurl.com/f9ubp/

Progressive Onion Chopper
http://tinyurl.com/ebmpz/

Disregard the sellers and the prices - I just picked them to display the products. I can shop the deal once I decide which one I want.

Which one would you buy if you were in the market? Or do you have another brand you can recommend. The only thing I want is an onion cutter.

I personally wouldn't use an onion cutter, so can't recommend one. Besides, I thought this topic was about chili?

It is about chili - how to prepare it.

Yes, I did read those comments. None of them was conclusive - some people raved about the products, others cursed them.

It's no big deal to cut a couple onions with a knife - I was just looking to make the job a bit easier.

Technical question - how do you split a single post into several sections like Citizen Bob did in responding separately to varioius observations?
Yes adobo is a sauce which is made with Chipotle Chilis, and hence the sauce usualy comes with whole chipotles in it.

Adobo sauce is not usually made from chipotles. It's usually made from other peppers, usually ancho. Chipotle chiles are often packed in adobo sauce which usually is not made from chipotles. Here are some examples

Indonesian adobo dishes are soy sauce-based sauces and have no chipotles.
