As a food item, they are usually served cooked, as a vegetable or part of a prepared savoury dish, but can also be eaten raw or used to make pickles or chutneys. Onions are commonly chopped and used as an ingredient in various hearty warm dishes, and may also be used as the main ingredient in their own right, for example in French onion soup, creamed onions, and onion chutney. They are versatile and can be baked, boiled, braised, grilled, fried, roasted, sautéed, or eaten raw in salads. They are pungent when chopped and contain certain chemical substances which irritate the eyes.
