Lasted 3 months, still waiting 235+ days for a replacement....
I contacted sunbeam on 25th September 2020 to report an issue with my 3 month old electric blanket (model BL5471) - reading reviews it appeared to be a common fault that one side would just stop working. Under warranty Sunbeam agreed to replace, and I was told one would be available in a couple of weeks, which became November, then December...then was told they had no more stock and I would have to wait indefinitely. I followed up in March and was told they would be in stock the 3rd week of April. It is now half way through May (235 days since ...I reported the issue) and still...no replacement. I replied to [Name Removed] via email 5 days ago...still no reply, no tracking number, no ETA, no offer of compensation, no compassion or understanding - the fact that we purchased the item to help keep my wife warm when she had to get up multiple times to feed our newborn...instead she comes back to a cold bed, and despite the new stock sitting in stores all around Australia for over a month, we're left out in the cold.
Purchased in May 2020 at David Jones Online Store for $299.00.
Sunbeam Electric blanket out of warranty; one of the controls were faulty but Sunbeam sent me a new one. Absolutely impressed. This is the second item that Sunbeam have been so generous. No questions asked; just mailed another one directly to me at no cost either for the product or delivery.
Purchased in May 2020 at Sunbeam Australia.
Was my best friend until it stopped working
When I bought this electric blanket I was in love. I looked forward to jumping into bed, being all snuggled up in winter. It kept me warm and cosy. Loved the heating options and the quick heating setting took the chill out of the bed very quickly, especially living in regional NSW where it drops to -6 overnight.
I look forward to plugging in my blanket every winter. Being able to feel that warmth again as it cools down outside... however this year it was different. I plugged in the controller for my side of the bed, was greeted by the lights c...
Purchased at Costco SA, Adelaide.
Quick heating with lots of options
While this electric blanket can feel cumbersome to use at first due to the double controls for temperature and time, it is just perfect once you find the settings that you like. I love the quick heat function that will heat the bed in the time in takes to brush your teeth!
The subtle blue light that glows to the floor when the power button is on is helpful for that bit of light should you wish to adjust the settings.
An all round winner from my point of view.
Purchased in March 2019 at Harvey Norman.
Sunbeam used to mean a quality product.
We have had this blanket for probably 18 months now. The controller on my side failed a few months ago. It works occasionally but mostly not. I wouldn’t buy another.
Love the quilted part but low on functions
Bought this after my last wool electric blanket which had so many variable settings from 1, 3, 6, 9 hours and upper and bottom body heat options plus 1 to 10 heat dial kicked it in after 3 years of almost daily use. I like a warm bed no matter what time of the year.
This very expensive one has very little functionality. No separate function for upper body and feet and only has 1 or 9 hours for timer and 6 heat settings.
The turbo 5 mins to warm up is good but it's definitely too hot to be in bed while that happens.
Overall other than it being quilted and I can't feel the wires, i can't say I'll buy it again.
Purchased in August 2019 at Harvey Norman for $237.00.
too short a life for the price!!
I really loved it while it worked ..thought it was best I've ever come across. Well fitted and more comfortable with good features.. except didnt last more than a few of years.. For the high price it needs to be more durable please. I've since bought a Breville ... not nearly as neat re wires on the controls but hoping it lasts. Really preferred the Sunbeam design but it went bung! ...and I'm losing confidence in the brand.!
My wife loves it
Its very comfortable, heats up gently from top to toe. Would thoroughly recommend it to any one looking to replace on older style electric blanket. Fits mattress well and does not slip all over the place . Purchased at Harvey Norman Postcode 3121
Can't wait for winter
I have used this last winter and early spring and have found that the electric blanket has been a blessing to me and my two kids. They climb into bed with me and and pa, and find the bed so nice and warm. Love my kids and my electric blanky.
I FREEZE EVERY NIGHT
This controller only has 1 hour or 9 hour settings, there is no ON!!
This means YOU CANT TURN IT ON LONGER THAN 9 HOURS!!!!
I HATE IT and cursed it several times till I threw it out and bought a real blanket.
After lots if research I decided on this as the specs say its has an extra warm zone for your feet. It also says you can sleep with it in if you set it to a low setting. Both are a gimic. The feet area are no hotter. And on a low setting it doesnt heat at all!!! You need it on 6 the highest just to really warm the bed up. Total gimic. Don't waste your money. Just go with a cheap electric blanket. It will do thr same job.
Great quality and worth the price
I purchased this electric blanket on sale for $175. It heats up fast and has a couple different heat settings as well as a timer to auto turn off. This was the main draw card for me as I usually find once the bed is nice and warm I fall asleep quickly and don't want the blanket on the whole night. Overall it's been a great investment.
Very nice quilting so you can't feel the wires
This blanket had the features I was after: a timer so I didn't accidentally leave it on and also thicker padding than other electric blankets as my old blankets wires felt uncomfortable. The control panel is very easy to use too. It gets very hot on the max temp of 6, so I only need it on about 2 each night.
Saving grace this winter!
I purchased this electric blanket in sales towards the end of winter last year and completely forgot I had put it in the cupboard until only recently! I am SO glad I found it as it has proven to be excellent in making the bed toasty warm before it's time to go to sleep. There's a few heat settings and a timer to auto turn off. Apparently there is an auto body temp sensor but we tend not to sleep with the blanket still on for safety so I can't really comment on this feature. Fit our very deep mattress well and the quilting makes the wires feel less noticeable compared to older styles of electric blankets. Would purchase again but I probably wouldn't pay the full price which I think might be over $200 for a king size bed!
So far so good. I like this product
I purchased this product recently and have found it really good. This is the first electric blanket I purchased and I like it. The only annoying issue is when the blanket turns off it has a strong blue light. This can be negated by simply turning off the unit. I love the dual operation which allows different temperature on each side of the bed. I have found that overall this is a good product that has kept me toasty and warm on cold winter nights.
Questions & Answers
I bought a sunbeam sleep perfect electric blanket I can’t sleep in it because I feel the wires and this make very uncomfortable I have tryed other sheets but still no good can you advice what to do
Firsty can I ask have you got the quilted sleep perfect the right way up?. Yo could try having your mattress over the top of the electric blanket is also another option.
When I asked if it was the same as the quilt I meant is it a duvet inner or electric blanket?
