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