Proctor & Schwartz Electric Company merged with a manufacturer of irons and coffeemakers, the Silex Company, to offer consumers an even wider selection of small home appliances. The new company was known as the Proctor-Silex Corporation, and to this day we continue to innovate, introduce exciting new products and continually improve our uniquely durable, tried-and-true appliances. Proctor Silex cooktops are electric cooktops that feature a sleek, modern design and reliable performance. The cooktops come in both two-burner and four-burner models. They offer a range of temperature settings to accommodate different cooking needs, and their cast iron burners are designed to heat up quickly and evenly. The cooktops also feature a spill-resistant edge for easy cleanup, and a non-stick interior for easy food release.
