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.
After reading numerous reviews on various heated blankets, I decided to spend a little more and try the Beautyrest. The blanket itself was soft, but was very thin. The heating elements could easily be felt, but the biggest problem was the blanket just didn’t heat up very much. The heating elements were also spread out so far apart that I couldn’t feel any warmth near the edges of the blanket, and since it’s so thin, I still felt cold under it. Even on high, it didn’t get very warm. The control and cord were also very heavy and cumbersome. Sending it back. Better off with a regular, thicker blanket.
I love almost everything about this blanket! Three different settings for heat, soft and feels like wrapping yourself in a cloud. When it’s on high be careful to keep the blanket STRAIGHT because the folds will get very hot very fast. Overall would recommend
Edit: After writing this review the blanket has stopped working completely, within a month of purchase. I’ve never left it on for more than an hour at a time and as soft and comfortable as it is I would no longer recommend if this is any indication of durability for the product.
I really liked it, but it’s a bit smaller than I thought it would be. It also stopped working after 3 months of moderate use. Automatic shut off was also inconsistent. Sometimes, it would cut off after 15 mins. Really not worth what I paid. I should have paid another $10-15 For something better.
Worked well for less than 60 days. Infuriated that these products are so poorly made that, when used regularly, are broken within a few short weeks. This is my third heated throw and this brand lasted the shortest amount of time.
We loved this blanket at first. Very soft and heated up well. Great for cold winter nights. But after about a month the blanket would shut off after only a few minutes and the control had a single blinking light. We would have to unplug the blanket for a few minutes and then plug it back in and it would work for a little while longer. Now, 2 months after purchasing the blanket, the control has 3 flashing lights and the blanket will not turn on at all. From reading other reviews, it seems this is a common occurrence. Given the price I expected better quality control and for the product to last more than 2 months. I very much regret making this purchase and most likely will not buy any other products from this brand.
Well, I've had this product less than a year, and it completely stopped working. I started to worry when I would notice that the controller was hot, when it wasn't even turned on, only plugged in. I got nervous because I had read previous reviews that were mixed. I've emailed the company, after it stopped working completely and I tried all the recommended troubleshooting tips, but after about 2 months have received no response. The reason I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 is because when I first recurved it, I was very satisfied, but before even 7 months use it has become worthless.
I visited family that had some high quality heating blankets. When I got home, I bought this one. I expected the same quality, but I was disappointed. The blanket itself was very soft, but the thinness made it easy to feel the heating cords right through the blanket. It made it not so comfy. I’m returning it. To me, it worth the extra $20-$30 for a blanket that feels evenly warm and not like a blanket of cords over my lap.
This blanket worked very well for about 3 weeks. Shortly after we bought it, some parts would get so hot they would burn you and other parts wouldn't get warm at all. Eventually, the blanket stopped working all together. I would not recommend buying this blanket at all, especially if it will be used in children. I hate writing a negative reciew but thought this one was important.
I bought 3 of these for my kids for Christmas. They absolutely loved them but after a few months my son's broke. We are extremely disappointed. These were not cheap blankets and now we are wondering when the other two will stop working. Obviously, we are out of the return window through Amazon so now we just have an expensive throw. I would love to contact to company but I doubt it would do any good. It is such a shame because my son is very upset about it.
