Why it's worth considering

This electric blanket heats up quickly, is easy to use and achieved a maximum temperature of 50°C. We couldn’t recommend it because it was too difficult to fit. But mattress sizing in New Zealand is quite variable, so if you’ve got a king- or large-single bed that’s on the small side, and you want a blanket with a mattress protector, then we think this model’s worth considering. See Made to fit for more information.
