This lightweight warming blanket is soft and plush, as the name implies, and supplies gentle, uniform heat. I love its convenient "preheat' feature that warms the blanket to the desired level in just a few minutes. It has the usual safety features like automatic shut-off. The control is larger than I would have liked, but easy to use. Overall, it seems like an excellent value. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this blanket or to purchase another.
