Best King-Size Electric Blanket

Shavel electric blanket.

4.0 stars, 231 reviews
“I will never buy another brand of electric blanket again. This is the best one out there. Yes, it’s a little more expensive, but it is well worth the price. You don’t feel the wires like other blankets, and it gets very warm!!! Love the dual separate controls. They really are separate, not just strung together like other blankets, and the cord is plenty long enough. I ordered one for every bed in my house!”

Best Queen-Size Electric Blanket

Sunbeam velvet plush heated blanket.

3.9 stars, 1,029 reviews
“An excellent electric blanket, and it’s much more convenient than the ‘smart’ blankets that just warm you around your body. The bed is actually WARM when you get into it on a cold night! The blanket itself is light, but has a thick, plush pile that is very, very soft and comfortable to the touch … The twin controllers each regulate the heat on either side of the blanket so that I can keep the heat setting comfortably high on my side, and my wife can keep it comfortably low on her side. With 20 heat settings, it’s easy to set a precise, comfortable heat. And the preheat setting actually works (unlike some other blankets we’ve used) and warms the bed for 30 minutes before reverting to the setting I like to use.”

Best Queen-Size Electric Blanket With Sherpa Lining

Biddeford sherpa heated blanket.

3.8 stars, 614 reviews
“My husband bought this blanket for me because I’m always cold and can’t have enough blankets on me! I LOVE, LOVE this blanket!!! It’s so soft and warm, even if I don’t turn it on on some nights! The queen size [has] two controllers, which is a plus. My husband does not like it hot, so he can control his own side! I turn it on high about five minutes before getting in bed, then turn it down to about five or six, and it’s perfect! I’m very pleased with this blanket; bought one for my son and one for my dad as a Christmas gift … I highly recommend this one!”

Best Full-Size Electric Blanket

Sunbeam SlumberRest heated blanket.

4.1 stars, 279 reviews
“When winter came around this year, I missed having the feeling of getting into a warm bed. The rental we occupy has drafty single-pane windows … And we are keeping the heat down to save on heating bills. So this did the trick. This model has 20 settings, a preheat setting, and an optional auto-off setting. I prefer to sleep on setting three. Backlit display. No clicking. The plush feel of this blanket is luxuriously soft. No shedding. It makes me want to melt in comfort. The wires are average size, but barely noticeable at all … I am sleeping much better with this blanket. Last Sunday, I got up at 6 a.m. after sleeping a full eight hours [then] decided to go back to bed around 8. Slept until noon. Unheard of. I have never done that. This blanket put a spell on me!”

Best Leopard-Print Full-Size Electric Blanket

Sunbeam leopard print with sherpa electric throw.

4.3 stars, 214 reviews
“In one word: heaven! In more words, it is a great item and my whole family enjoys this throw blanket. It lives in our ‘sun-room,’ which is a built-on room kit and becomes cool in winter, even here in Southern California. This throw makes it easy to cuddle up and watch TV without turning up the furnace. It is incredibly soft on both sides. I have washed it once according to the specific directions on the label, and it came out good as new. Excellent purchase worth every penny. Oh, and it heats up FAST and gets VERY warm on high for those who want to be warmed up pronto!”

Best Heated Throw Blanket

Sunbeam heated throw.

4.2 stars, 229 reviews
“We love this little throw! In fact, it’s larger than we thought it would be. Both my husband and I can sit on the couch and snuggle up under it together. It gets VERY hot, which is perfect for me, as I am frequently cold. It’s great that it can be washed in the machine; however, take special notice of the care instructions, as they are probably not what you are used to (it was unusual for me). It’s a great throw; we’re enjoying it!”

Best Twin-Size Electric Blanket

Sunbeam channeled velvet heated blanket.

4.1 stars, 125 reviews
“Absolutely perfect product! So soft, too. I have to use electric blankets to keep warm at night because I get so cold. Plus, I use it as a constant hot pack when my body gets aches and pains. Blanket programmer is new to me, but I love the options it provides: 0 to 20 levels, plus and minus buttons, 10-hour shutoff that actually works.”
