At last! No more crying into your onions.....
Colanders today launched details of a new product - Onion Goggles - for tear free chopping, mincing and slicing of raw onions.
These goggles have a comfortable foam seal which protects eyes from irritating vapours which are released when onions are cut open. They are as easy to put on as a pair of glasses and their anti-fog lenses ensure you will see clearly whilst you are preparing dinner!
The unisex design fits most face shapes (but will not fit over glasses). The goggles come complete with a storage case, to keep them clean and scratch free.
Onion goggles are available for £15.95 from Colanders stores in Hitchin and Welwyn Garden City and on their website.
David Eggison, Managing Director of Colanders said "Onion goggles are a fun, novelty product, but also really work! We think they're an ideal Xmas stocking filler for a keen cook".
