Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings using a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.
The padded top feels soft and the heating wires can not be felt under you. It is fitted, like a bottom sheet, so it stays in place without having to tie it to the mattress. The heat is very even from side to side and head to foot. The controls are quite large and a bit clumsy hanging off the side of the bed, which is true of most electric blankets.
This is the best electric blanket I have ever used (and I have used quite a few). The quilted design is the best feature because it secures the element and prevents it from becoming detached during sleep movements, as well as being very comfortable.
Love this electric blanket. The quilting on the top is so soft and comfortable that you can hardly feel the electric wires. I purchased a king to put on a queen bed because I have found that the heat does not extend to the edges with a queen. The king goes over the edges, but is still short on the foot area.
