Onion Goggles - Tortoise Shell
Say goodbye to tearing, stinging, irritated eyes when chopping, mincing, dicing and slicing onions, leeks, scallions and chives. 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. Eye protection technology meets kitchen practicality with our patented and innovative goggles. The comfortable foam seal blocks out irritating smoke and vapors and the slightly tinted and fog-free lenses add to the maximum clarity of the goggles. These unisex goggles fit most face shapes, but do not fit over glasses. The protective case keeps them clean and scratch-free. Measures 6-inches by 2-1/3-inches by 2-inches.
