Dice onion made simple 🙂 that’s what the following cooking school teaches.

Here you will find the relevant steps for easy dicing of onions and shallots.

You’ll need a sharp small and medium knife and a cutting board.

Follow this guide…

Good luck!

Dice Onion Step 1: Prepare

Place the cutting board stably on the work surface.

You can put a tea towel under it.

The cutting board should not slip but remain stable on the work surface.

The work surface, the cutting board and your knife should be clean and dry.

Place the onion on the board.


Dice Onion Step 2: Peel

Cut the onion in half through the middle of the root.

Remove the onion skins, leaving the root base on the onion halves.

Remove new, green shoots.

Cut the bulb vertically to 0.5 cm to the root.

Step 6: Control Onion Cubes

Check the onion cubes on the board and, if necessary, chop large onion bars again individually.

Please avoid chopping the onion, it will make it bitter and lose a lot of juice.

Step 7: Use Diced Onion

Use the onions immediately after cutting.
