This electric blanket is great. The material is very soft plush. It doesn't take long to heat. If you turn it on hi you will be turning it down to a lower setting within minutes. I highly recommend this. The price is great too. I have searched all over the web plus stores and there is nothing like it. Buy It You will enjoy it that is if you enjoy being warm. God Bless
This blanket is VERY soft. when I opened it there were so many pills in the package that I will not be able to give it a better review until I find out how it holds up to hand washing. Two notes: The dual controls require two outlets. You cannot tuck it in (under the mattress). My old electric blanket used ONE outlet and was designed to allow it to be tucked in.
I ordered the king size cream colored plush electric blanket about 3 weeks ago. It shipped very fast- I received it within 4 days of placing my order. It has two controllers that have a pre-heat setting. The blanket is also truly a king sized- it hangs over the edges on both sides of my Eastern King size bed. The instruction were very easy to read (unlike my last electric blanket) and the blanket heats up very nicely. The blanket itself is so soft and warm- so far, we've only tried out the heat element to make sure it worked, because the blanket is warm enough! It is also very lightweight, so it does not get all bunched up. I'm very pleased so far, but I will re-post this rating mid winter when it's 7 below and snowing like crazy- that's when we really need the electric blanket!
Ordered a king size blanket. It is just the size of the top of our bed. I expected it to hang over at least a little on the sides. The heater in it works very well though. We only use the heater on one size so the other side is not even plugged in and that is very convenient if you don't need both sides. Over all it is an okay blanket, but I don't think I would buy another one. It is just not big enough.
I'm very disappointed with this electric blanket. It's barely even warm! On high I can't even tell if its working. Don't know if I got a dud our what, but I am returning this pronto. Only reason I gave one star at all is that it is incredibly soft and not stiff...which is uncharacteristic of heating blankets. I was really excited by this when I opened it, but if it doesn't heat up right, its kinda pointless.
What a great product! My husband is always cold and wants heavy blankets, while I'm typically very warm and only want a sheet or light blanket, causing frustration. Well this solved the problem! I purchased a king size blanket in the deep red or maroon and found the product well made, very soft, and efficient. You can preheat the bed with it with the dual controls before you retire, and it also has an automatic shut off. The price was half of what I would have paid for another at a local department store (they don't carry this brand), and Overstock's shipping cost of a mere $2.95 was fantastic. Thank you so much!
The blanket is so nice - the blanket material. The heating part of it though did not warm at all on either side. It is a quality blanket material though and I was so disappointed to have to return. The bed as cold with this on high on both sides as without it at all. Underneath, by freezing feet, continue to be freezing. followed all instructions and troubleshooting information. I got a lemon I think based on the multitude of good reviews. I am reluctant to try another.
Love this blanket. Purchased a king in the beige shade. Very soft, very lightweight; doesn't pill or smother. Have it between a rather heavy quilt and the top sheet. Two controls mean my spouse and I can enjoy different heat settings. Surprisingly, the blanket isn't "hot" (like they were back in the 60s and 70s), but we still feel plenty warm. At bedtime, it only takes a few minutes to remove the chill from the sheets; then after we hop in and rest in place for a minute or so, the warmth is apparent. Sometimes we are a bit too warm in the morning, so I try (!) to remember to turn the controller down a few notches before falling asleep. Am considering purchasing a queen for the guest room. Delighted with this purchase - so much better than what can be found at a discount store and so much less expensive than at a department store.
I am very happy with this blanket. The blanket itself is very soft and cuddly. It feels great in bed even without turning it on. I ordered King and it fits my queen bed just right because I wanted it to hang down a little on each side (a little long on the end, the sides hand down about 18", which is perfect for our high bed). It is dual control and also has a pre-heat function that will heat your blanket up to the highest setting...then you can turn it down if you wish. It also has a automatic 10 hour shut off.
This blanket does not get as warm as I was expecting. We haven't had any really cold nights yet but I can see that I will have to turn all the way to 10 to feel warm. I am regretting this purchase. i bought this item for the price but it was not what I was hoping for.
We absolutely love our new blanket!. It is so soft, light weight, and very comfortable. The controls are really nice. I like the fact that they stand upright, and have large LED numbers. It is easy to read. I like the preheat feature. We have always had Sunbeam warming blankets and they maybe lasted 2 or 3 years. They were heavy and you could feel the wires. This blanket is so luxurious. Warmspun blankets are awesome!
Soft, cuddly, fits queen bed well..........blanket does not get as warm as I would like. Still need a quilt, comforter, over it...........also one needs 2 outlets, one for each side of blanket. This can present a problem if you have only one box near bed and want to plug in lamp or clock in addition to blanket.
