Product Description

Say goodbye to tearing, stinging, irritated eyes when chopping, mincing, dicing and slicing onions and their relatives—leeks, scallions and chives. Wearing the stylish and comfortable Onion Goggles will protect the eyes from irritating onion vapors. The soft foam seal keeps out the nasty onion vapors. When onions are cut, an enzyme called sulfoxide lyase and sulfuric compounds are released from the broken cells. When exposed to air, they react with one another to form a vapor. As this vapor evaporates, it irritates our eyes and causes us to cry. Kitchen folklore remedies such as burning candles or matches, slicing onions under water and freezing the onions before cutting are not effective.

Well, I used to look absolutely ridiculous, and now I look slightly less ridiculous. A la "Diva," an '80s French cult film with a guy who chopped onions wearing a mask and snorkel, I used to tromp into the kitchen with mine because my eyes bothered me so much when I'd chop onions. Enter the Onion Goggles! And yes, they really DO work. You do NOT have to have your nose covered, as I'd once believed. So far I've bought a pair for my son, myself, my brother, and a friend. The only downside is that they don't fit over eyeglasses, but since I'm not terribly farsighted this isn't a problem for me. If your eyes are sensitive to onion fumes, try these. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Some people have remarked that these onion goggles are a cheap rip-off. I recently received a pair of these from my wishlist as a birthday gift. The quality seems very good to me. I think that, perhaps, RSVP must have changed manufacturers for a while during 07 to 08, realized they were crap, and found a better manufacturer. I have not seen glasses from prior to 07 to be able to compare today's goggles with them, but I do know that the product I received is of a good quality.

The glasses are shaped like wrap-around sunglasses, curved to fit the shape of the face. Behind the frame that surrounds the lenses is a light foam material that creates a seal with your face. This foam has a layer of material (a little like a very thin black polyester flannel) that covers the part of the foam that touches your skin. This material makes the foam more comfortable, as well as strengthening the foam's edge--which without the support looks like it could easily tear. There are no ventilation holes cut into the foam.

Just like many wrap-around sunglasses, the fit of these onion-goggles is pretty snug. If you have a large head (like I do), don't expect to be wearing these for a long period of time (like for dry eyes.) While the fit is snug on me, (23" circumference head, size large hat) I find that I can wear them for at least a half an hour without discomfort--plenty of time to chop a lot of onions.

As the foam creates a seal between the nose and eyes, I did not have a problem with fogging. The foam seems porous enough that some circulation of humidity could occur. Interestingly, though, this did not seem to allow the onion fumes in.

The fumes. I could still smell the onions. The fumes still irritated my sinuses.

These goggles really work.....I put them on then chop onions...no tears! And, they actually improve my vision a little, so I would highly recommend to people sensitive to onions.

Honestly, I bought the glasses for riding on my husbands motorcycle at night, and they work great keeping the wind out of my eyes. I also have used them for safety goggles when we were taking out a cement pond in the backyard. I would use them for cutting onions if I were cutting more than one onion.

I bought these to watch TV. My ceiling fan dries my eyes out really badly and with summer coming, I was looking for a solution. I found these and thought that if they keep onion gas out, they should keep the fan air away. They work well for this and I could see how they would be great for the intended purpose.

My one problem is that if you wear them for say over an hour or so, they get a little uncomfortable. Since they were never meant for this length of wear I cannot fault them for this, but I thought I would post it on the off chance that anyone else was thinking of using them for this. They are still handy and I would probably still have bought them.

I am about as sensitive to onion enzymes as a person can possibly be and I have tried everything. Including regular swimming goggles! (Which, by the way, are the only thing that has worked amongst all the old wives tips.) But the regular goggles kind of hurt my face after a few minutes and the band hurt and messed up my hair so I would inevitably take them off before the air was clear and then my eyes would sting and water anyway! They also fogged up so I always risked lopping off a finger in the process as well. A friend got these and posted a picture of herself with them on facebook and I had to look them up. They're definitely not as cheap as some swimming goggles but MAN are they worth it! If you don't think 20 bucks is worth a pain-free onion chopping experience then you're not really that sensitive. It has always been a super painful experience, one that I avoided but I'm an avid cook and I do a lot of cooking for crowds so to make things properly I just suffered. (Think tears pouring down the face, stabbing pain that doesn't subside for 20-30 minutes after chopping, etc.)

These goggles are more like safety glasses so they are easier to take on and off and are much more comfortable than actual goggles. I wasn't sure the soft foam around the inside would actually keep the onion enzymes out since my face and head are decidedly on the small side but it did! And lastly they were crystal clear the whole time so I could take my time cutting my onions perfectly rather than the mad dash hacking they usually get as I try to be done as quickly as possible. I am buying my sister a pair for her birthday since she's similarly afflicted yet cooks a lot of dishes with onions.
