I use the pampered chef chopper for my onions and most veggies.

Hint on cutting onions without your eyes burning....works every time..... just take a piece of bread and hold it between your lips the entire time you are cutting the onion......no tears.... try it

To keep your eyes from burning: Wear swimming or ski goggles, or better yet, purchase onion goggles. Lots of places sell them, including Amazon. Not expensive, and oh so worth it.

Lurene Fisher... have your husband do it. Onions don't seem to bother me, so my bride saves most of her onion chopping for me. Hope he's a helpful sort. Well, or at least I hope you've got another soul about to chop `em for you. Hint that it's a guy thing, because guys don't react to the fumes as severely as you. If it's another gal you have around, well, I just don't know what to say... clothespin on your nose, perhaps.

Similar to how Gordon Ramsey shows you on his You Tube video. It works.

Susan. You might give us *your* "Perfect" method, although I'm not convinced even-size pieces is of importance in most, if not all, recipes

Can't say I agree with this method. If you know any geometry you'll know that this doesn't make even sized pieces. You have to take into account the rings and in this case you aren't.
