I can’t live without my electric blanket!
Heats up fast and on setting 3 it’s super hot so I just use setting 1 about half an hour before bed and it’s so beautiful and toasty, would recommend!
We bought this electric blanket in May to replace an old electric blanket.
It fits the king size bed nicely and is comfortable. Don't feel the ribs.
Has the 2 zones so can have just for feet just for upper body or whole body. The idea is nice especially if you suffer cold feet.
I find that it takes a long time to heat and even then isn't toasty hot. If its put on early enough it will eventually warm up but not very much.
I wouldn't recommend to buy it. Will probably research better and buy another for next winter.
Not hot enough, 30c not the rated 50c
This blanket is rubbish
It's no where near hot enough
The instructions say between 31-50 degrees depending on setting.
I never got close to that on three different tests. I did the tests because after I used this blanket I thought it was lousy and wanted to see what was going on
I turned it on (it turns on to high initially, which is 9 on feet and 9 on body, the maximum, and a 1 hour timer) and placed a thermometer in the bed for over 30 mins and measured it, 29 degrees! :-(
29 degrees is luke warm, certainly nothing close to the 50 degrees stated.
I tried it again, for 40 mins, 30 degrees again. I then tried it on the other side of the bed (queen blanket), same result after 35 mins.
Back to the shop it goes, what junk!
A few years ago we bought nearly the same thing at Aldi, the controllers died just after 1 year but I couldn't find the receipt. I will not bother trying Aldi electric blankets again, they clearly do not know how to make a good reliable one
Before that we had a Sunbeam. That heated up ultra fast but the blanket died after 2 years of use
I really want a Sunbeam again but with the old mechanical switches, I hate these electronic switches, that all fail. The old ones lasted for years
Save your money, these Aldi electric blankets are pathetic. You'd be better off with a hot water bottle, at least that would be much warmer
Purchased in May 2019.
Brought an Aldi electric blanket a couple of weeks ago had it on the bed for 1.5 hours no heat at all so took it back for a refund. Thinking this could not happen again brought another one yesterday exactly the same thing has happened after 1 hour on the bed no heat at all so this one is going back as well. Will definitely not be getting another one, very unhappy
Purchased in June 2019 for $50.00.
Heat is at maximum when turned on.
Purchased Easy Home Multi Zone Queen size Wed 22 May 2019. Works ok but noticed blanket turns back on at maximum heat setting. Must have had a short power interruption while using it (it was set at Heat #1). When the power came back on, heat was at maximum (#9). It got hot and very uncomfortable and woke me up. Contacted Customer Service thinking I have faulty controllers. Explanation? ... "It's designed that way." Are you serious? "We have been selling it for 4 years and no complaints. If you are not happy with it, you can return it." Guess what? I will be returning it and getting a Sunbeam.
IMO it is a terrible design flaw and potentially hazardous.
Controller has stopped working after 3 days.
I bought a queen size with dual control. One controller has stopped working after 3 days, so I'm using only the other controller now.
Control has stopped working properly and won’t come on
I bout this in beginning of February then packed away. The object isn’t fit for purpose it’s a disgrace selling stuff that personally I would expect to last for a number of years, that doesn’t last any decent length of time, I have socks older than this piece of trash.
I bought the electric blanket from Aldi in June 2016 and my control stopped working so I moved the control from the other side but it blew up as well. Contacted Easy Home but they said that I was out of warranty. Won’t ever buy that brand again. My previous blanket lasted 19 years
We recently purchased this electric blanket for our son and his partner. After one night it stopped working or would switch on and off.
Disappointed that a gift didn’t work for a week!
Perfect winter warmer
Fits perfectly on my king sized bed
Heats up quickly and is super toasty
Love how you can heat top and bottom seperately as well as being able to seperately heat up each side of the bed
Easy to use
Both sides not working. EDIT 05/05/18: Sorry, nothing wrong with it.
Bought from Aldi Ballarat. Queen size, dual controls. Should not rely on testing using back of hand as heat dissipates too fast without a quilt on it. It works just fine.
Bought one, took it back as I thought it was broken, next one just as bad...takes over an hour to get luke warm in hottest setting...dreadful compared to sunbeam...will be taking second one back also...frustrating experience.
ok item - pills a lot
i liked it a lot but after a while the fluff pills something terrible - nice snug fit on bed - but so so badly pills - prob should have taken back for a refund - not sure if i would buy this brand again
It’s a bit patchy
I bought this blanket to replace an old one. I thought with all the extras it would be great, but not so much. It has 4 different zones, 2 for feet and 2 for upper body so you can control where you want it, but it really didn’t get very hot even on the highest setting and it would turn off all by itself in one zone
Accident waiting to happen!
Bought a king size, the wires have all moved, making it have hot spots, fear of fire or getting electrocuted, hoping I can return this product for full refund, here's hoping!!!!
Many features and inexpensive
I purchased my Aldi queen size electric blanket in June to replace an old KMart one and I`m more than impressed.
Best feature is a sleep timer so if you forget it automatically shuts off. It can be set for hourly increments and also has 4 different zones for you and your partner.
Easy to fit as well.
One great feature is being able to only warm your feet and I do suffer from cold feet in the early hours of the morning. I pop it on about 5 (heat setting varies between 1 and 9) and I set if for an hour and it`s perfect.
Pricewise it was around $50 and is a little ripper (I try to avoid the word "awesome" as people are often too dumb or limited in vocabulary to use any other descriptive words)
Well worth the money and for what I paid if I get 5 years out of it I consider I`ve had my money`s worth.
Solid 5 out of 5 !
Bought this Fitted Electric blanket last year which has two controllers and 2 way settings for Upper body and lower body. Plus it has temperature settings so you can control the heat setting as per your preference for your side.This blanket fits quite nicely on my king bed and warms up in 10 minutes. Good quality blanket with lots of features.
Great Offering from Aldi
Very happy with this purchase for my kids bedroom. Cheap and cheerful Aldi offering and what appears to be a well made and quality product. Separate zones for heating upper or lower body and a handy timer on each side are included in this particular design. I'd definitely buy another one should they come around again next season. Hopefully they will offer them in King size as Queen appeared to be all that was available at my local.
