Awesome electric blanket
Fantastic blanket at a great price. Seperate controls for legs and torso, machine washable also, have had this for a couple of years now and it hasn'tlet me down. I thoroughly recommend it!
Purchased in June 2018 at Aldi nuriootpa for $70.00.
Fantastic electric blanket highly recommend. Great system, it heats the bottom and top of the body separately or together. 9 heat settings. Very hot or warm or cold when you turn it off that is :)
Best electric blanket ever!
Have used this every winter for the last 3 years and it is amazing. Having the multi zone is good but the best thing is the timer. I love having it on for an hour or so while I'm in bed, and comfortable in the fact that it will not be left on all night when I fall asleep.
King electric blanket Aldi
Works well! But if you have it on 5 and want it not so hot you have to click all the way up to 9 to get back to 1(no click down /decrease heat button). And it clicks loud. I like the auto timer To turn it off after 1 or up to 9 hours. The body zone and foot zone is great too! Overall it’s great for $69 king size.. I get cold and have it on all night 3-4 is plenty hot.
Buy a different brand
Had our KS blanket for 2 years. Even on the highest setting it doesn’t get as warm as our old Sunbeam one which gave up the ghost after 11 years. Rarely do we have the blanket switched on after we get into bed. Just use it to nicely pre-warm the bed. Last night I could not switch the controller on my side off so had to unplug it. Back to Sunbeam I go.
Purchased in May 2018.
Happened to us too report to acc it's dangerous
I've just logged the online report with the acc. I set it 2 woke up to it burning hot, luckily I'm not on sleeping medication
Aldi June 2020 Queen Size Electric Blanket
First, it is not a blanket... it is a pad - it goes on top of any other pads and under the bottom sheet.
Second, the engineering is lacking in some of it's design features. Most notable is that the cables come out on the sides of the bed and not at the center of the head of the bed. This causes some annoying difficulties in getting the fitted sheets... fitted. The control cables should be long enough that they can individually be placed ON any nightstands or bedside tables. Having the controls dangle or lay on the floor introduces the ri...sk of damage from accidental 'step' crushing and makes the wires rest on the floor where they can be trodden upon. NOT a good design feature. Besides, wires laying around in view is just tacky. Lastly, in engineering, the power plugs stand out away from the wall socket. This in many cases will cause any beside table or nightstand to need to be pushed way from the wall a safe distance as to NOT crush the plug and cause a fire risk. I placed small wooden blocks behind my night stands to mitigate this risk. A flat plug would be a much better and much safer design. The engineering changes to make this a Grade A appliance would have cost pennies to have been included in manufacturing, but, for some reason, the engineers didn't see fit to actually design the heating pad to be completely user friendly. On the 'good side'... it does heat up quickly and the timer seems to work well. The zone heating for the feet separately from the body is that much nicer, too. I WOULD recommend this to someone that does not care about perfection in design or does not feel these design flaws would hamper them or their safety in any way.
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.
Slow to heat up
It's ok but takes a long time to heat up. Better than being cold though! Price was reasonable but I will be buying a different brand soon. We have two in our household and same story. Slow to heat up
No more cold feet
I suffer with very cold feet and this has been amazing no more pain or cold feet at night having the best sleep since I brought it, perfect fit on the bed no wrinkling
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! :-(
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.
- Easy Home Multi Zone Electric Blanket (Jun 2016)
- Verified purchase
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
