No doubt everyone has at least a handful of utterly useless kitchen gadgets. The worst one to ever pass through my kitchen was a 10-piece plastic microwave omelette maker (a gift from a well-meaning but distant relative, but I don’t even have a microwave!).
And yet while many would call this onion keeper redundant, it’s a star for any small household. A little onion goes a long way, and this airtight container keeps the remaining cut bulb fresh in the fridge for a week. I love adding just a few teaspoons of raw onion to guacamole, or a dozen slices on top of a pizza, or for the world’s greatest weekend lunch: a grilled cheddar sandwich with a few slices of fresh onion in it.
