Rated 2 out of 5Â by OzarkMom321 Think I got a lemon
I received the Biddeford throw as a gift 2 years ago and loved it until last week when it quit working. After reading reviews for this one I decided to buy it instead. Loved the feel of the throw but it did not heat up. I put it on high setting and it barely warmed up, thought maybe the temps got switched so put it on low. Needless to say it did not make a difference, With it being a Sunbeam product I figured I may have gotten a lemon. I returned to Kohl's store today and will give it another try by reordering. Will update review after I receive the new one.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by heather4land Everything was of very good quality
Everything about the blanket was very nice, except, one thing, we had intended to use it on a small cot. All started out great, nice and warm,
After a bit, I woke up and was cold, then checking the controls found it had shut itself off, I turned it back on and again, it warmed up nicely, going back to sleep I awoke again, cold, Blanket was again, off.
At first I thought there was something wrong, until in the morning, I got out the box/instructions and read about the "safety" feature of automatic shut off.
For my use, it utterly defeated the purpose that I bought it for. "To have a constant warm blanket through the cooler portions of the night."
I think that the manufacturer should have a selector for automatic shut off or manual so it would stay on, until you wanted it off.
Currently it is back in the box, and up on a shelf. Perhaps if I have a friend that is bed ridden or wheel chair bound, where it would only act as a "day cover" I can give it to them.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by DianeShops Terrible product
Ordered on line and returned upon receipt. This throw was of extremely poor quality. Texture was like coarse felt and very thin so that the wiring showed through. Waste of time ordering on line only to return
Second time an online purchase from Kohl's hasn't measured up during the very busy holiday shopping season. Won't order again.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Ssandy blanket not made well
I bought three different electric blankets from Kohl's. This was one of them. I did not like this one. It was very thin looking. I was afraid that it would not take me long to make a hole in it when I tossed and turned. I also didn't like how the controller attached to the blanket. It was not very secure and easily pulled off. The controller wasn't the easiest to use. I have already returned it to Kohl's.
