I wanted a electric blanket, and am tight on money. I went to the Wally Mart, rather than order one online, because it is so cold out.
I only needed TWIN size. They had all Sunbeam products, I did not notice any other brand of electric blanket there.
They had the MicroPlush throws for $29, and Twin electric blankets for $29.
The cheapest ones were the Sunbeam Fleece throws, with 3 heat settings for $19.99. I decided to roll the dice, and get this model. They had two types, a spiffy Zebra stripe, and a Maroon one. I chose the Maroon.
It works good! This blanket does not get super hot, but it is MORE than adequate. I used it last night on my bed and had to turn it to low, and then to off, and I am a heat freak. I used it with a cheap, 2 prong extension cord.
Used as a throw, in the front room, I use the HIGH setting. This front room is drafty. The throw is plenty warm.
On the bed, you only need the LOW setting. I used HIGH at first, then MEDIUM, then LOW, then OFF. Plenty o’ heat!
I am 6’1″ and the throw is large enough for me. I use it underneath a heavy blanket, with a sheet on top of me.
These throws have a reputation for being flimsy. The other electric throws and blankets I have used never lasted, so I can’t give it 5 stars, but it certainly does the job.
