I was so thrilled when I read that caramelized onions article, thank you. All this time I have thought I was just an incompetent caramelizer!

Reading the article and comments, it seems there is much confusion between browning onions, which is quick and sometimes all you need to do, and caramelizing, which always is long and slow, regardless of all the tricks offered. Vintage cookbooks used clearcut descriptions of the spectrum of onion doneness: sauteed was white and still crunchy like in a wok stir-fry, then light- brown, golden-brown, browned and soft (caramelized but we didn’t use that word), and sweated was steamed with a cover so they were very soft and translucent but not browned. We seem to have lost those distinctions and people just say caramelized because it sounds cool.
