Rated 5 out of 5 by MadBuyer Very nice blanket
I read NEG customer reviews re: the warmth of this blanket but decided to try it for myself. I have owned electric blankets since the 70s and find this one to be so comfortable and toasty without too much weight. Wires are thinner which is great. It feels light but luxurious at the same time. I live in snow country in CA and have always used the setting of 4-5 on my old electric blanket. I didn't know what to expect with this blanket and started it on High an hour before getting into bed and quickly turned it down to 4 to sleep and adjusting it even lower during the night. I do wear flannel PJs all winter, though. So far, I'm very happy with my purchase and so glad I really saved a lot of money with a fantastic sale. I bought this blanket to eventually replace my present working blanket that pilled horribly with heavier wires, which I also bought at JCP, but this one was so toasty and looked and felt wonderful that I am using it now! My husband loves it because he has RA and loves the warmth without the weight of heavier wires. We have learned never to sit on our blankets because of damage to the wires, and they have always held up well. I hope this blanket will last a long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BWCALady Very STRONG chemical smell.
I ordered this blanket for my first try at an electric blanket. I received it in about 3 business days. But when I took it out of the box it smelled really strong of petroleum of some sort. I hung it over my outdoor clothesline for 2 days, it was no better. I noticed black oil spots on box so called company & they sent UPS to get it & sent me a new one. I waited 3 weeks for this exchange. The new one smelled ok out of the plastic bag, just new smell. I hung this one out overnight also to get that "new" smell out. The only thing I can figure is the damp night air brought out the same very strong motor oil or hydraulic fluid smell to a head jerking degree. ( My sheets smell wonderful off the clothesline) When I returned it even the JC Penney clerk's head jerked back at the strong acrid smell. While I am sensitive to certain smells my husband is not & he also had the same reaction to the smell. No way that blanket was going on our bed. So, I don't know what happened to me with this blanket since all other reviews are raving but guess I'll stick with my heating pad for my cold feet at bedtime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Becky The is THE Best Warming Blanket
I have owned and used electric/warming blankets for 30 years. I have purchased two recently before I purchased this warming blanket. This blanket, hands down, far exceeds every element (sorry for that pun.) of other warming blankets I have owned. It is just a wonderful blanket that actually gets warm enough to heat the bed and me. The quality of the blanket itself if excellent and does not slip off my bed like many other brands did. I am going to buy a second one, I am that pleased with it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ZenFarm Gave Out After 1 Year
After one year of moderate use, the blanket control simply stopped working. It was a fine blanket and warmed well up to that point, but one year is a pretty low bar for an electric blanket. I'll replace it with a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carrie0104 Great Christmas Gift
I purchased this for my in-laws for Christmas and they could not have been happier. The blanket is a plush, soft, warming blanket...not hot to the touch, but warms up quickly. It's exactly what they wanted. I ordered it a week before Christmas and was concerned I may not have it in time. I was delighted when it arrived 2 days later! It is a great value, because aside from being on sale through JCP online, I also used a $10 reward and a discount coupon at checkout! can't beat the price!

This electric blanket is soft and warm. You can't feel the wires. It stays in place, unlike reviews I have seen of some other blankets that can slip off the bed. We looked at a lot of blankets and reviews before picking this one. It is a tad more expensive, but well worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by steph Love this blanket!
This blanket is awesome! I love the fact that it has dual controls. Not only that, but it has an automatic turn-off. I set it a few minutes before we climb in...it's toasty and just what we need this winter. Would recommend it to everyone!
