Sur La Table's Onion Goggles Are Ridiculous [gift fail]
This is just stupid. Sur La Table sent out an email yesterday where they imply that onion goggles, a $22 piece of padded plastic that hooks over your ears, are a legitimate Christmas present.
Onion goggles are not a legitimate object, let alone Christmas present. The only acceptable reason to wear protective eyewear in the kitchen is if you're bandsawing a beef carcass. The only acceptable excuse for looking like a snowboarder while making your mise is if you are, in fact, snowboarding while making your mise. Neither scenario applies here.
