The moment I took this out of a package one of the controllers wasn’t working any it wouldn’t heat on that side (which seems to be a common issue on here). Luckily, I contacted the company I bought it through and they quickly sent me out a new remote. I used it 5 or so times that winter then put it away for summer.
Fast forward to next winter and the other controller had stopped working. I contacted the supplier, as I did last time, which they then replied to they had gone out of business and to contact Kingtex directly. I emailed Kingtex expl...
If only I had kept the receipt!!
The fleece is nice but the electric blanket is worthless rubbish. It has all the items we wanted - fitted fleece blanket, cut off switch, timer - but it lasted one use! Now the heating system has died and the controller is blank.that’s a lot of money for a fitted blanket. My advice - buy a $22 electric blanket from Kmart instead of wasting $160 on this pos.

Cold feet on King Size Single
I got the King Size Single Ramesse electric blanket, and very frustrating, Yes, its king size fitted to go over a king size single bed, but they use only single bed heating elements that stop 8 inches from the end of the bed giving cold feet. The complete opposite of what you want on a cold night. It should not be sold as a king size single.
One controller doesn’t work but has display other controller has faded didplay
Terrible product will never buy again, one controller has display but blanket won’t work that side and other controller has faded display very hard to read but blanket works that side, also had a double for spare bed it smoked and burnt but that was still under warranty so was replaced, not a good run with this product

Faulty control no response to requests to replace controller
Purchased through Groupon -the controller was not working from initial delivery. The company phone is disconnected. They don't respond to emails.Appears a common fault. Subsequently noted that Choice rated them last in a review of electric blankets.

You can't control the temperature!
If you fluke turning the blanket on then it is OK, but you can't check whether you have turned it on or off. If its wrong, you wake up in a sweat. Basically you don't have any controls that you can verify. I don't know how this blanket passed Australian safety laws.
Purchased in June 2020 at Harris Scarfe Physical Stores for $85.00.
Good but not great. The LED lights on the controller have ceased to work and its very difficult to change settings. Of course the receipt docket from Harris Scarfe has not lasted as long as the warrantee. Additionally, I have found that when I want to turn the temp down it initially raises the temp before reducing it. Not great when your already a bit too warm. Lovely fitting and great to have the fleecy wool top.

Fits well, but I have no idea how to switch the blanket off. The Smart controller has an On/Off button but does not seem to actually turn the blanket off, the Owners Manual is quite vague but indicates that the blanket should be set to L for all night use or on "low" if you wish to use it for several hours, this is confusing, does L = low?

This is a very good product. Works very quick, great settings. No complains! Easy to use and adjust. Use it every night in winter, is essential. Used for 1.5 years so far
Purchased in October 2017 at eBay for $60.00.
Happy with this blanket
Ramesses Electric blanket
The blanket works very well, it fits well I do not understand why people say the fitting is hard as it is not. Make sure you understand the blanket right way up.
I do not like the controller that much it has a on off button. set time off. and temperature all good.
Buttons are just a little similar confusion can happen when very tided. I did check around the shops and found this one to be a safe well made blanket.
fantastic after service
I purchased this electric blanket over a year ago, but when I put it on my bed for this year noticed one of the controllers didn't work. I called the distributers and while I knew I was out of warrantee was happy to pay for the new one as I am so happy with the product. Well, within 3 days a new controller arrived free of charge at my front door.
WOW, i am a very satified and happy customer.
Works great, have had no problems
Has several heating settings, visible on the small screen, as well as auto turn off settings, which come in handy. Comes in a range of sizes, and fits nicely on my bed. Does create a small lump on the side of the bed, but that's easily ignored. Very satisfied.
So safe and energy efficient
So safe and energy efficient. It turns off automatically after 10 hours or you can vary the shut off time up to 10 hours. It is fitted so is easy to take off and the controller unplugs for washing.
Does the job and happy with it
The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it does take about 30 mins to take the chill out of the bed and about 60 mins to heat the bed. Otherwise very happy with it.
fantastic, great product
Having to replace my electric blanket after the ten years, I looked and reviewed many.The Ramesse Electric blanket was well worth the money, love the automatic off function in case of over heating. Great fit for our bed, settings are great, you can have what ever temperature you like. I love the fact that I can wash it, so as to keep it looking good and fresh.
Questions & Answers
I just bought the king size , i keep setting the timer for 8 hours and within 1 hour it has turned off , no instructions came in the box , what am i doing wrong ? My son brought the queen size in this brand and it did the same to him so he throw it out .
Hi Tammy, try this as it works for me, but not happy that the electric blanket doesn't reach your feet. Switch the blanket on and the light should come on showing H for hot. Don't touch this switch again. Go to the right side of controller and press the right side button and timer light comes up. Press button to get required hours. Don't touch any switches again. Leave lights on and will go off automatically after a short period but power will stay on. If that doesn't work must be faulty.
Can you wash this electric blanket please?
I wouldn't imagine, because electrical wiring doesn't like being creased or bent to extremes as a washing machine would do to it. If you read the instructions carefully you may find the answer. Airing it in the sun for a day would help deodorise the fabric.
Need to buy a control for the blanket as it doesn’t turn off where do I get one from
Who knows? This blanket should never have been approved for sale in Australia.
I suggest that everyone should notify the ACCC about this problem and ask them to have it withdrawn from sale until a controller is fitted that allows you to turn it OFF and ON!
