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.
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.
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.
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!
Perfect for winter
bought these nearly 3 years ago during winter , amazingly warm and soft. their sizing is also perfect! very recommended during winter months, only downsides is the cable was not long enough but extension cord solved it all
Can't wait to go to bed!
Never have we had such a comfortable electric blanket. The quilting is amazing, cannot feel any wires. The controls are in the right place. The large fitted skirt is fabulous!

Beaut ... until they die. Thank heavens for 3 year warranty!
King Bed size purchased from David Jones, Kotara (NSW). My first comment is KEEP YOUR RECEIPT! From my experience and that of most of the reviewers, you'll need it. For my next comment, let me say that I've found the people at both Sunbeam and the retailer, David Jones, to be genuine and sympathetic in helping me.
Thirdly, while this blanket works it is supreme! Heats up quick, simple controls, washable (I've not had one long enough yet to try this), comfortable and with two elements readily allows both sides to achieve their comfort ind...ependently. My fourth comment is that I suspect the root cause of the consistent product failures is a combination of an over-designed electrical safety system plus a poor attempt at building to the design at the factory and finally an absence of QA/QC at Sunbeam. This final point being that to ensure the product meets its design parameters, Sunbeam should have by now put into place some root cause analysis and product improvement processes to identify why this product doesn't seem to like the electricity supply or customer use. I'm losing count but I think the one I picked up as a warranty exchange from DJ's today is the fourth if I include the original purchase (I think). All have failed the same way. Work for a year or two. Then one day when I switch it on (twice at the beginning of the cold season after it has been turned off at the power point for - like - 8 months) it blinks infuriatingly at me in a message that says "The controller is not connected to the element". And so far, only on my side of the blanket!! I've had the same experience of others in PR who get the arcing - crackling noise in the control power (on/off) switch. But I find most 'contact' switches around the house can do this anyway. A combination of dust and moisture. So this I don't find a big problem. Neither am I really concerned that this 240V electrical device that I sleep on and possibly perspire into is unsafe. Rather I suspect that all of the gee-whiz surge and overheating protection in the controller and/or element (blanket) is TOO sensitive.
Questions & Answers
how to turn it on continuously
Can you feel the heating elements/wire through the material? My wife is like the princess and the pea?
yes definitely!, the 2018 model is the same as well, you can easily feel the heating wires through the entire blanket.
