For best results, peel and cut the onion in halve lengthways and place skin side down, onto the chopping grid making sure it doesn't overhang. All you do now is bring the lid down to dice it into even pieces. Once you are all finished with the slicer you can easily disassemble the slicer into 3 parts for easy cleaning.
