Tuesday's Kitchen Tips - Sharpen Your Knives For Less Tears
Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
If you find yourself tearing up while cutting onions, try sharpening your knives.

The oils released by a dull knife trying to get through a defiant onion will produce more tears than a nicely sharpened one gliding effortlessly through it.

For instructions on how to cut, slice or dice an onion and other vegetables see this great video, How to Sharpen Knife Skills .

Safety is another reason to have a sharp knife. "A sharp knife requires less pressure in cutting than a dull knife does, and your hand is less likely to slip."

When is the last time you cried when cutting an onion and when is the last time you sharpened your knives?
