To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wish I had paid more attention to the reviews. While this is a very soft and a beautiful throw blanket, it is way too thin compared to my previous other brand heated throws. It did warm up very well, high is really hot. The temperature gauge nice control and I really liked how it stayed plugged into blanket. One complaint I’ve had on other brands, which is why I went with Beauty Rest this time. I also like that it shuts off on its own after a period of time. I would have given 5 stars if it had just been thicker and not being able to very easily feel the wires inside because everything else about it makes it 5 Star.
My son purchased this for me on my birthday in October. This unit is suppose to have an automatic shut off........I don’t think so......I left it on last night and woke up this morning to an extremely hot controller looks like it was starting to melt. This is a dangerous product for $60!!!!! Buyer beware. Worst product I have ever purchased from Amazon and I am a frequent shopper!!! Ridiculous. I am lucky this did not catch my house on fire!!
UPDATED: I am updating my original comment to add that if I could give this product zero stars I would absolutely do that! I purchased this blanket in the early winter of 2017. By April of 2018 (only a few months later) the product completely malfunctioned and just stopped working. Unfortunately, it was past the date to return it to Amazon. I left a negative review and took my loss. The company actually emailed me to get feedback and sent me a replacement blanket and asked that I just send the original back. GREAT! I got a new blanket free of charge and was excited! It was such a great product while it worked. However, I am updating this again LESS THAN A YEAR after getting the replacement and the new blanket is having the same issues. So my recommendation is that unless you only need a blanket that works longer than 5 months, this is not for you. So disappointing!!
ORIGINAL COMMENT: The blanket broke 4 months after buying it. Such a high price and for it to not work so soon I am highly disappointed and will look into other brands in the future. The blanket suddenly stopped turning on and all of the lights just flash when plugged in not allowing me to do anything.
I saw a few folks complain about the size. The dimensions are listed, so stop it.
Saw another’s person fussing about the big label on it. They didn’t just randomly decide to ruin your blanket with a giant label. It’s required for all heated blankets. The great being this manufacturer did was loosely sew it on so you can carefully cut the thread and pull it off. Others iron that label on and your stuck with it. So again, stop it.
this is definitely soft as can be on both sides, the down side of this blanket is that the heater tended to not always work. my daughter uses this at night and its chilly in her room, most nights it works like its supposed to but there have been nights we cant get this to turn on. Reading the warnings about 1 piece of dog hair on this and its not returnable has deterred us from contacting the seller as we have Dogs and although not allowed in our rooms, we cant stop dog hair from getting into places especially if its on our clothes so we just use it as a standard blanket when the heater isnt working proper! it is fairly warm, even though its thin. yes Id recommend
I like others spent a lot of time researching heated blankets as I seem to have to get a new one every year as they only seem to last that long. The blanket is very thin and you can definitely feel the heating elements but this did not bug me to much as it got very warm. I have never had a blanket get “to” hot but this one did. It was AMAZING for the 6 weeks it worked. Now the remote just blinks and nothing. Also good luck with the warranty. That was another reason I spent so much for one. Thinking that if it broke I could get it replaced!!
I bought this is a gift for my mother for her birthday. She has had it less than a month. She turned it on tonight and thought to her self "this is getting really hot". she went to turn it from high to low and couldn't do it because all of the buttons were melted. She had to actually unplug it from the wall because the off button was melted in! Definitely returning. I'm so glad she hadn't fallen asleep!
This has been the best Amazon purchase so far hands down..I bought this for an upcoming hospital stay. I had to test it out first. I don't want to crawl out from under it! The settings are perfect, low never gets hot.. It's just tight. It's so incredibly soft!! It was a great buy. I truly love it!
So far I am very pleased with this purchase. The bad reviews definitely had me double thinking the decision to buy it but I’m glad I did. Is it a little too thin? Yes. But it’s not as bad as people make it sound. At all. It’s so soft and lightweight that I’m surprised I don’t feel the cords more than I do. You can feel their presence but they’re not bulky by any means and I’ve never dealt with a heated blanket where I couldn’t feel the cords at all so I guess we are getting what we pay for and I am happy. I will update later on if I have problems with over heating or melting of the controls. I think this would make a great gift or gift for yourself!
- Update: I did want to mention that even though I am happy with my purchase, I would not buy it again. Maybe I should have read through the details more than I did but on the paperwork that was included with the blanket it states that this product is not meant to be used by animals and that if it is returned with even ONE animal hair on it the warranty will no longer hold. Even if a pet owner was cruel enough not to allow their animal the warmth and comfort of this blanket, an animals hair can STILL get on the blanket due to being on the owners clothing. Or maybe it could have floated through the air. I don’t know. It was something that bothered me that I felt others needed to know. Literally ONE hair will make your warranty null and void. Keep that in mind.
