The only thing that really works for me is steam -- and plenty of it.  
I keep a pot of boiling water or a kettle on the boil nearby whenever 
I'm chopping onions to give my eyes a nice little steam bath while I'm 
cutting.  This is one of the earliest cooking lessons I learned when I 
was a child and it's worked ever since.  Does anybody else do this?

Thanks for all the great recipes and tips!
