How to chop Onions

To slice your onion

  • Cut a peeled onion in half.
  • Place one half of the onion face down on to the chopping board and place your fingers at the edge.
  • Tuck the tips of your fingertips, so that they are not exposed.  
  • Begin slicing downwards with your knife.
  • The side of the blade of the knife should slide off and away from your fingers preventing any injuries.
  • The knife should slice through the onion all the way through.
  • When you have sliced about ¾ of the onion turn the remaining piece of onion down and continue slicing.
  • You should have nice, clean cut slices.
  • Repeat with the other half.

To dice your onion

  • Cut a peeled onion in half.
  • Rotate so that the root is facing away from you.
  • Don’t slice the onion all the way to the edge, leave some root joined.
  • Rotate and star slice it again, creating little cubes.
  • The knife should slice through the onion all the way through, until it makes contact with your chopping board.
  • When you have reached the root which is joined turn it down and continue.
  • You should have nice, clean cut cubes! A perfectly diced onion!
  • Repeat with the other half.
