I love to put onions is just about everything that I cook but I hate cutting them. My eyes water so bad, then my makeup runs in my eyes...it really is a big mess! When I found out there is a fix for that I had to see what it was about.
Onion Goggles protect your eyes from the nasty enzymes that cause your eyes to water. Onions contain cells with amino acid sulfoxides that form into sulfenic acids. The enzymes are kept separate until the onion is cut then it mixes and produces propanethiol S-oxide. This smell reacts with the tears in your eyes creating sulfuric acid. These goggles protect your eyes so the volatile compound cannot irritate your eyes.
The soft foam around the edge of the Onion Goggles creates protection for your eyes and comfort for your face. Great household item and a perfect gift for that cook in your family! This awesome product was also featured on Modern Family in season 2.
