We used to toss and turn to get to sleep. Now I turn this on 5 minutes before we go to bed and we both fall asleep 3 minutes after we "hit the sheets". Strangely, we both wake up in exactly the same position we choose to go to sleep in! Heaven!!!!!
I love this on my bed..our heater in the house went out during the holidays so this mattress pad came in sooo handy.. it still works fine.i turn it on when i get home from work so when i get ready to go to bed the bed is nice and warm i only put the controls on 2 or 3 and it warms fine.
This is our second heated mattress pad. Our first was a Biddeford for a Queen Bed. We were limited on our options for a California King bed. I like that this has a pre-head setting, but even at the highest level with the pre-heat it doesn't get nearly as hot as the Biddeford mattress pad. It gets comfortably warm, which is perfect most of the time. On very cold nights we wish it was warmer. I think we also feel the mattress pad wires a tiny bit more with this one, but are overall fairly happy.
Works great to warm up my cold toes so I can go to sleep - and that's just being on the lowest setting. My husband likes to set his side on the second (which would be too hot for me), so we can each set our sides to be exactly the right settings to be comfortable for us. I'm sure when Winter snow/ice storms come along, we'll still be warm even if we have to turn the settings up a notch or two
