For as long as I have lived by the sea in Weston Super Mare I have owned an electric underblanket. I owned a Silent Night one which was bliss but after popping it in my tumble drier too many times the plastic on the blanket that attached to the power lead to it melted a bit which made me feel that the blanket was no longer very safe so off I popped over to Amazon and to look at what they had.
This cost me £40.00 for the double size, double in price of what I originally paid for my Silent Night one way back when it was on offer in my local Asda store so I had high hopes it would be as good if not better....
It came in a simple see through storage bag and on two pieces of cardboard on either side of the bag I was shown the blanket and told what it was and told a bit about the product and I got a 3 year guarantee with it and contact details for Morphy Richards were given.
To say I feel ripped off with this is a massive understatement! First off lets look at the size shall we? My bed is a standard double. Not an Ikea double or a European one just a bog standard double bed. This is called a double blanket..... simple right? Well no, obviously not. This is really small in width and height and just covers half of my bed width wise and under me it cuts short making it rather uncomfortable to lie on due to the ridges it creates and it total this measures 152cm by 122cm and there are straps to each corner of the blanket to secure it but I can't make them reach!
Its made of a soft cream coloured fleece but it isn't a thick blanket at all. Lucky it has 'nano wires' though I can see them I can't really feel them which is good for me!
It has a large white control pad and to control the 6 heat settings you simply push up and down a section of plastic. its easy to do this and if the blanket does get too hot then it has a safety switch to turn it off which has never happened to me though I like to roast myself. The cord which the control panel is on easily pulls in and out of the blanket which is great as this is fully machine washable and tumble dry safe which I have done a few times since owning it and I simply wash it on 30c and tumble dry it on a warm heat opposed to doing it on high as it does have a plastic bit on it of course for the power lead.
This also has extra foot warmth but again as it comes up short on me so I can't feel that and all in all I just feel that this isn't a good buy to be honest. Yes it keeps me warm but without a cosy/luxurious feeling sadly and the size of it is a problem and I'm on my own so if you sleep with someone you could end up fighting over who gets on it!
Not recommended from me I just don't like it I'm afraid and am now looking for a new one!
