I went through a couple of Sunbeam brand blankets before I bought this BeautyRest. The first quit working in the third season, the other I bought just before this one and it didn't work right out of the box. But I remember electric blankets that were warm and toasty when you got in the bed after an hour's warm up, and none of the electric blankets I've seen in the past few years do that. This one works, but just gets moderately warm. I remember when there was no heat turned on at night and your electric blanket was the only heat we had. Last night it got down to 26 degrees, colder than I've seen it in years here in Texas, and the temp inside was around 60, and I had to keep this blanket on high all night. They just don't make things like they used to, I guess.
This is my 4th Beautyrest Electric Blanket in about a 30 year period. The only reason why I'm replacing the one I owned previously is because my puppy decided to take a bite out of the cord (thankfully when it was off!). Love my new grey very soft blanket that actually has the very slim heating cords extend wider than my other blankets so that more area of warmth is covered. The color is gorgeous as is the feel of the blanket. The Preheat is quick. Just know that it will preheat and then automatically switch over to the number you had it set to previously when you turned off the blanket. My only wish is that they would make the cord the same color as the blanket! Other than that, it is certainly large enough, soft enough and warm enough. LOVE IT. Highly recommend.
