I am pleased with the Beautyrest heated blanket.Tho I live in a warm climate the nights are cool. Rather than have the heat too high I can use my blanket. I have found it to be soft and cozy.The fleece material is more resilient than my older model. I especially love the Preheat setting. The bed is nicely warmed then automatically turns to whatever number i have chosen. My cats are also enjoying the extra warmth! I was glad to choose the lovely light blue color which is one of my favorites.Another good and safe feature is the 10 hour automatic shutoff.I have timed this and it seems to be accurate.I am hoping to be using this blanket for many seasons. I can say I'd gladly buy another . People who are told to have the room temperature lowered can do so but still feel warm enough in bed.The wires are more flexible than in older blankets.That also aids in the coziness factor.I am enjoying my blanket and think others would agree!
i saw somewhere some negative reviews on this blanket, but i find it to be excellent. with 20 heat settings, it's perfect for the extreme weather changes in the high desert, the highest being hot enough for those 20 degree nights (and we don't use our heater much)! i was very concerned with the care instructions (run dryer a few minutes, then put blanket in a few minutes, then stretch to origninal shape and lay out to dry?) but i put both machines on delicate/handwash cycle, and it came out fine. a little hand stretching and it looks and operates great. i should mention i bought a full size for a twin bed, so if it shrunk, i don't know, seems okay to me. also, no annoying "clicks" from the control, pre-heat setting stays on for a full hour, and it doesn't auto shut off for ten hours, so you don't wake up freezing. i'm going to buy another as soon as i can!
This blanket is just what I expected. Soft, warm and I love the preheat setting. It often is enough to warm the bed so that when you get in it's nice and toasty and you don't need it to stay on all night. I also use it when I sit in my recliner. Want to stay warm? Get this great blanket
This electric blanket is soft and attractive on the bed. My cat loves this blanket so much, that she yells for me to get out of bed so she can curl up in it. I use this blanket every night since the heat has gone off at night. It keeps me quite comfortable. The only reason that I gave this four stars is because the blanket seems to heat in some spots, and not others. Maybe it's just not cold enough now for it to work full throttle. However, I like this blanket much better than the one that I used to have.
I had a lands end blanket which I loved but it was very expensive and it died after a year. I didn't want to spend that much on a new blanket sp I opted for this one. This blanket is ok. You can still feel the wires which you could not feel in the lands end blanket. It does have 20 settings which is not really necessary. The chords to plug in could be longer. I have washed it and it didn't break down. The instructions for washing are crazy - like soak for 5 minutes and agitate for 2 minutes! I don't see how something can come clean in 2 minutes! Then only dry for 5 minutes low heat. So, basically you better not need to wash or dry it. We will see how long it lasts.
We haven't had a bad winter. I am keeping my electric heat down.... but I crank up the this blanket when it gets chilly - uses less electricity then my baseboard electric heat and is so toasty warm. It can be adjusted to suit your need for warmth. The color (sage) matches my bedspread and look great on the bed - yet is totally functional... Delivered fast - good quality and a nice assortment of colors to pick from.
