such as Vidalia or Texas Sweet,
(both large yellow onions)won`t make your eyes burn.
If your local grocery doesn`t have either of these types,
ask someone in the produce section if they cary ANY sort of sweet onions.
Most of them do.
You can also peel and chop or slice a regular onion underwater in ice water.
It will make your hands cold,
but it will keep it from burning your eyes.
To get rid of onion smell,
rub your hands with raw,
or wipe them thoroughly all over a wet stainless steel sink or pan
