|No more tears or burning eyes when you peel onions!|
I confess that for most of my life I was a bit of an onion-chopping snob. My eyes never seemed to bother me when I chopped onions and I figured anyone who was bothered by the onion fumes had to be a bit of a wimp. It wasn't until late last year when I had eye surgery and no longer needed contact lenses that I realized that it was the contacts that kept the onion fumes out of my eyes all those years! Suddenly I could hardly chop an onion without my eyes burning and stinging. What is a food blogger to do?
Luckily I remember hearing about Onion Goggles, and after about my second or third time trying to chop onions with my newly improved eyes I ordered a pair from Amazon.com. The onion googles fit close to your eyes and have a foam layer around them so the onion fumes can't get in, and they make an incredible difference, especially if you're chopping quite a few onions at once. I am now a committed wearer of onion goggles, and I decided I adore them so much that I should make them one of my Kalyn's Kitchen Picks, where I recommend products I'd happily buy over and over again.

I bought the onion goggles shown above myself from Amazon.com and the company has no idea I am writing about their product. All items featured as Kalyn's Kitchen Picks are things I will happily buy over and over, and because I want readers to know that my opinions are completely unbiased, I no longer accept sample products of any kind. (However, if you do follow the link above and buy some onion goggles from Amazon, Kalyn's Kitchen does earn a few cents on the dollars from that transaction; thanks!)
