Do you know any tricks how to cut the onion into small cubes?
I've tried many times, but my girlfriend always complains that they're too big:)

Do it like I do (and Jamie O.)
Slice the onion in two. Then, make slices but not cut the onion entirely, so they the ends are still connected. Make horizontal cuts if you want really small cubes. Then, cut perpendicular to the first slices until you are almost done. Then turn the onion (as it will be smaller then the height) so it is flat again. Make your final cuts.

after pealing and trimming the top and bottom, slice the onion in half along the top/bottom axis. then turn each half flat side down, and make a series of cuts parallel to that top/bottom axis. Make them as close as you want. Then make a series of cuts perpendicular to the top/bottom axis, spaced similarly to the previous parallel cuts.
A sharp knife helps a lot, as usual.
Place it on the board as it stand. Slice them top to bottom like parallel ways then cute them to smaller :)
Or you could pick the lazy way.
Advantages: Quick easy, no smelly hands, no tears and no more cuts!
Now you've perfect small cubes.
Alternatively use the grate and chop it at the end.
