Onions Without Tears
Spiralizers can make quick work out of onions—which is great news for anyone who has wiped away the tears while slowly chopping their way through a large Vidalia with a knife. Once you've cut off both ends and peeled away the papery skin, place it in the spiralizer—the narrow, spaghetti-type setting is perfect—and spin away. In about 10 seconds, you'll have strands for frying as a garnish over casseroles or on sandwiches, pickling or caramelizing, which you can then use in any number of ways (hello, onion dip).
