Easy Slice 74311Y

Our extensive review highlights the pros and cons of this electric knife.

The Proctor Silex Easy Slice electric knife is fairly wide compared to others we reviewed yet it is still comfortable to hold. This electric knife is not recommended for small hands.

Loudness: 90 DB, fairly loud but tolerable

Bread: easily cut through soft bread, had to exert extreme pressure to cut through the hard breads

Squash: could not cut the squash skin, as blades slipped and bounced

Hard cheese: slipped at first but managed to slice the cheese with hard pressure

Poultry & meat: no problem slicing the meats

Bones: took a bit of work to get through chicken bones, did not cut through most turkey bones

Handle: fairly wide yet comfortable to hold, not recommended for small hands, becomes slippery very quickly during use

Vibration: moderate

Features: safety lock button, easy blade release, two-year limited warranty

With roots tracing back to the Philadelphia Textile Machinery Company founded in 1885, Proctor & Schwartz Electric Company was formed in 1920. The company had many firsts: the first silent toaster, first electric glass coffeemaker, first cord-attached iron, first toaster oven/broiler, first pop-up toaster/toaster oven, first adjustable automatic iron, first snap-apart line of serviceable kitchen appliances, and first see-through steam iron water tank.

In 1960, Proctor & Schwartz Electric Company merged with a manufacturer of irons and coffeemakers, the Silex Company, to offer consumers an even wider array of appliances. The new company was known as the Proctor-Silex Corporation.
