No obvious bad points.
This is the joint best-performing electric blanket we tested. It topped all our tests except controller usability (where it still achieved a respectable 8/10) and reached 57°C.
Overall score includes:
Heat-up (40%): Shows how quickly the blankets reached their peak temperature on their highest heat setting.
Controls (20%): Assessed on the user-friendliness of the controls.
Fitting (20%): Assessed on both the initial fitting and whether the blanket stayed in place.
Cleaning (20%): Assessed on how easy the blanket was to clean and dry.
Running costs are calculated from the energy consumption of the blanket during warmup, then running it for 8 hours per night over the 3 months of winter on its “All-night” setting. If there is no “All-night” setting then only the warmup consumption is taken into account.

Goes on like a fitted sheet. Controls are very easy to use and disconnect. Can put on a 72 minute setting which is great for kids as it heats the bed before they go to sleep and switches off by itself after they are asleep. Washable! Had an issue with one of the four I purchased some months down the track. Contacted Sunbeam directly and they sorted it immediately. Fantastic customer service A+.
Yes, I recommend this product.
