I purchased two of these electric blankets, one in queen and the other in full. It stated you could wash them. I washed the full size that I had purchased for my grandson according to the instructions. It doesn't work now. I am afraid to wash my husbands queen size. It shouldn't state you can wash it, if it is not true. I am going to contact overstock.com and see if there is anyway I can get credit for this item.
IT keeps me warm at night, and I don't have to worry about turning it off with the auto shutoff after ten hours, and I don't have to worry about shorts in the wires or overheating, as the controller is computerized and checks for those conditions. It has 20 levels of heat, and my only complaint is that the wires don't seem to be as securely in place inside the blanket as the last two Cozies I had.
What can I say about the classic brand. Beautyrest makes a great electric blanket. I have owned 4 my entire life. One when I was single and then years later purchased additonal three for my family. Simply just make the best durable electric blanket. I have never had a problem with mine and still have the one I purchased over 24 years ago. The color is outdated for my decor but I use it now in a guest room!
I usually don't use electric blankets but I was feeling so tired in the mornings from several heavey blankets so I tried this blanket and really liked not having all the heaviness of quilts. I used it every night last winter and will again next.
