This heated blanket earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute after tests proved it to be the warmest and most comfortable. The Best model heated to 8.74° F above the ambient temperature - 107% higher than other blankets. The Best Heated Blanket's temperature varied by only 1.94° F across its entire surface and its dual controllers produced a 5.21° F difference between the left and right sides when one controller was set to high and the other to low, unlike lesser models that produced a nominal 1.88° F variance. The polyester blanket has a 400 grams-per-square-inch soft, plush weave that earned the highest rating for comfort, and it withstood repeated cycles in a washing machine without pilling or fraying. With LCD controller (two on Queen and King sizes), 10 heat settings, and 10-hour automatic shut off. Lagoon, Garnet, Sand, or Ivy.

MYSELF AND MY WIFE LIKE THE BLANKET. SHE USES IT MORE THAN I DO, MY BODY TEMPTURE RUNS HIGHER THAN HERS. I THINK IT IS A GOOD PRODUCT. TIME WILL TELL. ASK ME AGAIN IN 6 MONTHS TO A YEAR.
Good quality, but not as good as before
By HS enthusiast
from New Mexico
We have enjoyed the equivalent electric blanket that we bought from HS in 2011. The currently available blanket that we tried out has material that is not as soft as the previous blanket and there appears to be a sheet of plastic embedded in the new blanket that makes a crackling noise, so we returned the new blanket.

Truly The Best Electric Blanket!

I love the dual controls that are separate

Catalog lacks details
Low voltage (conversion from AC to DC) is v important- makes it evenly comfortable. Phone reps need to know this detail
Love this blanket.
from Wynnewood, PA
At first I bought an electric blanket by another company that cost half as much as this blanket. The wires showed throughout the blanket and the heating didn't work. I decided to splurge for the higher cost of this blanket and it was A great decision. You can't see any of the wires through the whole blanket. There are occasional indentations from sewing but they do not detract from the look of the blanket. It works really well, it looks really good, and I am very pleased. I bought the brown blanket.
Slow but sure

heats slowly but if you learn to set it its very comfortable
Great product and great customer service
By James Ray
We live in a cold, damp climate so the blanket sees a lot of use. It is low voltage and inexpensive to run. It has a wonderful pre-heat cycle for heating the bed on cold nights and adjusts really well to the sleeper's comfort zone. We have had two controller failures over ~6 years forcing blanket replacement twice. HS replaced both under their lifetime satisfaction guarantee. The only reason for 4 stars is the two controller failures.
