Customers’ Reviews:

This is the best heating blanket I have ever owned. Very pleased with the softness and easy funtion control. It washed up nicely after a new kitty found it to be her favorite blanket too

We have been enjoying the comfort of this fine product for the past two months. The instructions are very accurate. It provides a soft warmth. It is not a heating pad but a very comfortable warmth. We find that if we warm the blanket on High for a short time prior to retiring and turn the blanket off as suggested and then turn it on again and reset the temp to a lower setting it is just right for the night and will turn off automatically after 10 hours should we forget to do so.

Customers’ Reviews:

I gave this to my Dad who is always cold. Every time he sees me now, hes under it and can’t say enough how much he likes it. Plus since he’s older and forgetting things, it’s nice that it turns itself off after 3 hours, just in case he forgets.

I purchased this electric throw to help keep my electricity bill down. I have one on my bed and I keep one in the living room to keep me warm while I watch TV so I don’t have to keep the main heater on so much. This electric throw will shut off automatically in 3 hours when you first turn it on. It has 3 heat settings. Have any of you ever put your sweatpants/shirts in the dryer for a few minutes to get them warm and then put them on immediately and enjoy the warmth for a few seconds (that’s all it lasts)….well imagine that feeling for minutes or hours. That’s what these electric throws are like. These throws are so warm.

Customers’ Reviews:

I put this on my daughter’s bed. She uses it to pre-heat her bed before getting in to bed and says that she’s perfectly comfortable, toasty warm. No need to heat the whole bedroom and she’d previously complained daily about being too cold at night despite multiple layers including a down comforter. So for some, such as my daughter, this can be a very effective and efficient solution to a vexing problem and also greatly increases the quality of her sleep. I wish that I’d purchased this years ago!

This is one of the best heated blankets I have ever owned. It heats up very quickly and it gets extremely hot. I usually just have to have the dial set to 3 or 4 and I’m good.

Customers’ Reviews:

My husband gave this to me because I am always cold. I didn’t think I would use it. Boy, was I wrong! I use this all the time. It’s so soft and I even use it when we have the AC on. Thanks for being so thoughtful!

I bought this as a present for my 89 year old mother. She tends to be cold most of the time. She loves this throw especially in the evenings while she is watching her sports on TV or sitting at her desk. Once in a while she will spread it out at the bottom of her bed when her feet are feeling cold. The automatic shutoff is a great feature she loves. I was skeptical, but SHE LOVES IT!! I think she mentions it almost every email she sends me. Great gift!!

You may stay warm and cozy without using large blankets. Make a perfect small gift with these little warmers you or your beloved ones may use just when they need it.
