Onion chopper recommendations?

I guess there's no reason the serious eats "community" should be expected to be be less judgmental than the rest of the internet.

For my boyfriend, the cost of chopping an onion is not worth the benefit of having it in his food. This is not the case for me, so when we cook together (as we nearly always do when we eat together), I chop the onions while he contributes something else - often doing tasks I find unpleasant, like washing lettuce, greasing pans, or handling raw meat. My hope is to give him the gift of onions: to make it easier for him to enjoy an ingredient that I think can make all the difference in a meal. Of course the aim is also to tease him about his aversion to onion cutting.

Thanks for the helpful and supportive comments.
