Learn How to Cut an Onion with seven different cut types. We are sharing videos and images to help you up your knife game! All the various onion cuts will suit different dishes and cooking techniques.
Starting at the bottom and working your way up, slice the onion every 1/8″ while pushing the onion down with your fingertips.
Next, from the top, slice the onion 1/8″.
Lastly, run your knife down the side of the onion for nice evenly diced onions!
Starting at the bottom, slice every 1/4″ all the way through before the root so you keep it intact.
Next, slice from the top and the side again 1/4″.
Finally, run your knife down the side 1/4″.
Again, starting at the bottom, slice every 1/2″ all the way through. Then, from the top slice down into 1/2″.
Start by cutting your onion in half, removing the skin. Next, chop the onion in half again. Starting from the side, make angled cuts all the way through.
If you are new to julienne slices, you can also cut the onion in half, turn it to the side and slice down. These are basic julienne slices (right image below). If you want a “fancier” julienne slice (left image above), start from right to left and at an angle, slice all the way down. Then when you get about half way through, flip the onion so it’s flat and finish slicing.
Start by removing the ends and the peel. Once you have that done, lay the onion on its side. Produce Mom TIP: You can remove a small slice from the onion so it sits flat and doesn’t rock back and forth. This makes cutting onion rings a little easier for the beginner. When slicing rings, you can cut them as thin or as thick as you want!
