Having purchased many Sunbeam heat blankets over the years, I must say that This one was really a disappointment. The heating is fine but it's the blanket material which is so terrible!! It slides all over. For instance, when I turn over in bed, the blanket goes with me but then when I turn back the blanket stays in place. The blanket is between two sheets as always. I was going to return the blanket but after seeing all the pictures online, decided that the materials were all similar. As I said, it does keep me warm but I am constantly having to open the two sheets and pull the blanket over me which does not provide for a good night's sleep.
Just in time for winter my beautiful Blanket arrived. The color is gorgeous and the Royal Mink Style is very light weight.
This blanket was bought to replace the Sunbeam blanket we had before which failed after two years. They don't say online that the one we bought doesn't have a clock/programming like the one we had before. Also, the fabric is so slippery, other bedding falls off of it making for a warm blanket which leaves you cold with no covers. Keep shopping
"Slippery" describes this blanket well. It feels really nice, but the bedspread on top of it, and the sheet below it, won't stay in place; the spread slips about 1/3 off the bottom of the bed, while the sheet bunches up at the bottom .. every night. A PLUS: the controls are absolutely silent - no clicking nor beeping when adjusting it, and there are 15 heat levels. There is a "preheat" mode, which I don't know what that means. A wide satin binding at the top would have been nice. Ample cord length between the two controls on my Queen bed.
This blanket is very, very heavy. Uncomfortably so. It feels like I have the leaded apron that a dentist uses when taking x-rays of your teeth laying on top of me. I find it to be suffocating. My husband, however, loves it. I can't wait for warmer weather so I can take it off of my bed.
I already sent a review but you must have lost it. I am very disappointed because the cord is too short for the king controls to fit on both sides of the king bed.
It's a nice blanket but there are two things I don't like. It's slightly short width wise - and the blanket is slippery - doesn't stay put.
We just tried it out for the first time last night and found that, contrary to the other reviews, the length and width of the blanket and length of the control cords were more than adequate. Very soft and toasty!! I highly recommend it.
