Electric-blankets-hero Preview models tested

We put 5 blankets through 13 separate safety tests and checks.

Although they’re much safer than they once were, electric blankets still require some caution – we’re completely vulnerable when asleep.

As well as checking for safety we measured the blankets’ heat-up time, assessed their controls, looked at how well they fitted the bed, and rated them for ease of cleaning and drying (based on the manufacturer’s instructions).
