1. Sunbeam Blanket – Best Overall Electric Blanket
The blanket is made up of 100% polyester which means you can easily wash it in the washing machine without any worry of the blanket getting shrunk.
Made up of sherpa on one side and the Royal mink on the other side, the blanket is reversible too, which means you are free to use it from any of the sides.
Our In-Depth Review:
Sunbeam is one of the oldest brands in the market and it not only produces electric blankets but also produces heated mattresses and heater throws. None the less, everything it produces comes with exceptional quality and that too at a great price point.
The heated blanket that we are reviewing today is a soft and cuddly blanket with Sherpa 250GSM on one side and Royal Mink 200GSM on the other side. The blanket comes with 3 different heating modes, switches for which are present on the remote added to the blanket itself.
On the remote, you also get a button to turn on the 3-hour auto turn off timer. This means that once this feature is turned on from the remote, the heating will automatically stop after 3 hours from the moment the electric blanket is turned on. This will make sure that there is no overheating and no discomfort is caused to the person sleeping.
Some of the electric blankets also come with automatic temperature control that automatically senses when the blanket starts overheating and turn down the heat or completely cuts it down depending on the level of overheating it has sensed.
We highly recommend going with the blanket that atleast has the switch to auto turn off the heating.
Getting back to our Sunbeam blanket, the Sherpa and Royal mink fiber used on the blanket is super soft, on top of that the overall weight of the blanket is only 3.5 pounds which overall makes the blanket extremely comfortable to use. And since the blanket is made up of polyester, it is washer and dryer safe.
- The blanket could be used from both sides.
- Auto shut off and auto-adjust.
- Built of high-quality polyester.
- Ultra soft fabric.
- The placement of the plug.
Sunbeam electric blanket comes with some really soft fabric, and the option to use it from both the sides is another great option to consider it. Looking at what you pay for it, we think this could be a great option for those who want all the features at a decent price point.
2. iTeknic Electric Blanket – With 10 Heating Modes
This is one of those electric blankets that do not come with standard 3 heating modes instead comes with 10 heating settings which means the probability of you getting your perfect temperature setting is high.
The blanket is ELT certified and comes with auto turn off timer settings from anywhere between 60 to 180 minutes to prevent overheating and providing safety to the user.
The price of this blanket is a little higher as compared to some of the other electric blankets, but looking at the extra advanced features that you get with it, the extra price you pay is completely worth it.
Our In-Depth Review:
We would like to start off the review by talking about the feature that is most important and which is thankfully integrated into this blanket in the best way possible, which is Auto turn off heating.
While most of the blankets come with the option to set a timer to turn off the heating after a few hours, the iTeknic blanket automatic turns off the heating after 240 minutes so that just in case you forget to set the timer the heating is still paused after some time.
The button to set the auto-off timer is present on the remote that comes along. Talking about the remote that comes along, its detachable, which makes washing the blanket much easy.
Getting to the second feature that we absolutely love about this blanket and we are sure that every user would love it is the option to choose from the 10 temperature settings. The settings start from 68 degrees F at Temperature 1 and go up to 122 degrees F at Temperature 10. This makes the blanket suitable for the places with extreme cold.
Also unlike other electric blankets, this one almost takes no time to heat up.
Talking about the fabric quality on this electric blanket, its soft as it could ever be. And then that is complemented by the overall weight of the blanket which is just 4.3 pounds.
- A lot of heating modes to choose form.
- The digital screen on the remote.
- Heats up in no time.
- Automatic turn off after 240 minutes.
- Available in only one size that could be small for few peoples.
You just can not go wrong with the iTeknic electric blanket. It has one of the highest temperature settings in the market, is built of some really soft fabric, and also comes with the functionality to auto turn off the heating after several hours. Although the size of the blanket is a little bit small for taller people, if you have normal height, everything would work perfectly for you.
3. Maxcare Sherpa – Light Weight Electric Blanket
Maxcare is a very renowned brand when it comes to electric blankets.
The one over here about which we are going to talk today is a sherpa reversible blanket that comes with 4 heating levels and 3 hours auto-off functionality.
The price of the blanket is a little higher than the sunbeam blanket, and the blanket is slightly softer than the sunbeam.
Lets have a look at some of its spefications below:
Our In-Depth Review:
If we have to rate this blanket based on how it feels on the body then we will surely give it a 10 out of 10. Unlike most of the other electric blankets in the market, this one is quite thick and you won’t feel any wires inside which is usually the case with most of the blankets.
Also like we discussed with one of the blankets where the plug was at the center and the only way to get less distracted by it was to keep that end on the side of feet. Well, with the Maxcare sherpa over here, the plug is present on the side so there is no chance of it coming into the way and causing any kind of inconvenience to you.
One thing that we absolutely loved about this specific Maxcare was its color combination. The blanket comes in red and white color which looks really beautiful. Yes, we know that the white color will get dirty quite easily, but hey, you lose something to gain something.
And its not just about the looks of the blanket, it is extremely comfortable too. Its soft, fluffy, and large enough to cover your whole body without any size issues.
The remote do not have a button for the auto shut off timer because the blanket do not come with that feature. Instead, they have set up everything automatically. The automated setup turns off the heat automatically after every 3 hours from when it was turned on.
For those who are wondering if the blanket could be washed in the machine, then yes it could be. The remote control is detachable, and once you have detached it, you are free to wash the blanket in whatever way you want, washing machine being one of the ways.
But not everything is good with this electric blanket. Although the heating is good and fast, the heating is uneven. Not all the parts of the blanket are heated evenly, only a few parts of the blankets are heated and some parts are slightly warmer than the others.
- Turns off automatically after 3 hours.
- Fast Heating.
- It comes in a beautiful color combination.
- Soft and comfortable.
- Uneven Heating.
This is a really great blanket from one of the most popular electric blanket manufacturers in the market. The 4 temperature settings, the excellent fabric, and the fast heating technology make this an excellent choice for almost anyone.
4. Sunbeam Channeled – Available in Multiple Colors
We already have one Sunbeam electric blanket on this list before. This one is slightly more pricey than the other one but comes with some really great improvements.
For instance, the Sunbeam channeled comes with 10 Heat settings while the blanket mentioned above comes with only 3 temperature settings.
Our In-Depth Review:
Sunbeam channeled is one of those blankets about which you can never go wrong. Although we would not call it the most beautiful looking blanket, but the features packed in it are pretty solid.
One of the features that really impressed us is the 10 temperature settings.
Normally the blankets come with only 3 heat settings or 4 in some cases. With 10 temp settings in hand, the probability of you getting that sweet temp for yourself is way too high. Also on top of that, the blanket comes with the auto turn off features that make sure no overheating happens and you remain safe and comfortable.
The blanket is available in 4 different sizes and the micro plush fabric used on all the variants is extremely soft and feels really good on the skin. Unfortunately, this blanket is not reversible so you have to stick to one side only.
The washing and drying for this blanket are going to be super easy for you since the blanket is washer and dryer safe. But make sure to remove the controller plug before going in for the wash.
The Full and the Twin size variant comes with one controller while the kind and the Queen size come with two controllers. So if you are a couple sharing the blanket the both of you can set the desired temperature for your individual side.
Talking about the heating, its even and fast. Some of the electric blankets are known to have uneven heating which makes the user feel a little weird inside it. Thankfully this is not the case with Sunbeam Channeled.
Some people have complained that the King and the Queen size blankets have too many cords since they come with two controllers. But we think if two people are using at the same time then it is very convenient since both the users can set the temperature as per their likings.
- It comes with a lot of temperature settings.
- It automatically shuts down after 10 hours.
- Weighs at around 5.25 pounds.
- The material is very soft.
- Wires are quite noticeable.
Surely not the cheapest electric blanket in the market, but looking at the features like 10 heat settings and the auto turn off funtionality, we think we are getting a good deal for the price that we are paying for it.
5. Tefici Blanket – With 4 Hour Auto Turn OFF
And its not just the auto turn off a feature that’s great about this blanket, its also very soft and lightweight.
The blanket is available in two different patterns: Moose pattern and Camel pattern. The one that we took into consideration was one with the moose pattern.
Our In-Depth Review:
As said earlier, this blanket would be perfect for those who want to have all the features at a lower price tag.
Even the customers say that with this electric blanket they get all the features of the expensive blanket at a cheaper price point.
Now getting into the actual review of the electric blanket, everything is almost perfect on it. The three-level heat settings work great. In fact, level one is going to be more than enough for most of the people since it produces so much warmth at the lowest level. The blanket do not get hot on the high level which is a good thing.
The blanket is made up of flannel which is super soft and anyone would love to cuddle in it. If you are especially looking for an electric blanket that can ease the body pain then this electric blanket would come as very handy for you.
According to some of the user reviews on Amazon, this electric blanket actually helps with body pain and problems like endometriosis.
The last but not least, the blanket could be washed in a machine and the durability of the heating pad inside does not get affected by the washes. PS: Remove the controller/remote before going in for the wash.
- Heats quickly but not too much.
- LED lights for different heating modes.
- Extremely soft fabric.
- Size could be a little small for some people.
You do not want to spend much but still want to get the expensive features, well then this electric blanket would be perfect for you. One thing that we specially want to say for this electric blanket is that it comes with some really soft fabric that would surely make you feel good.
6. Pure Warmth Blanket – Extremely Comfortable
The blanket is available in multiple color options and 4 sizes: Twin, Full, Queen, and King.
The blanket is UL certified and comes with all the advanced features that you get to see in the high-end blankets.
Our In-Depth Review:
Let’s start with the price of the blanket. Its not cheap, and with that we don’t mean that it is super expensive but it comes at a similar price point as some other high-end electric blankets from popular brands.
So you are not going to save any money buying this, but one thing that we can promise you with this electric blanket is a high satisfaction rate.
Talking about build and comfort quality of the blanket, its pretty nice. The microplush sherpa used on the blanket is super soft and inside it, there are thin wires that are hard to fee unless you are actually trying to find them, they are not going to cause any kind of distraction to you.
The blanket heats really quickly and starts to show its capability right from the first heat level. The heat is evenly distributed throughout the blanket and combining it with the softness of the fabric, its really cozy to sit in the blanket.
For safety purposes, the electric blanket is equipped with a 10 hour shut off timer so that there is no overheating. This one of those important features that every electric blanket must come equipped with.
If you are wondering if you can wash this blanket in a machine, yes you can. There is no need to hand wash it, just unplug the remote and you are good to throw it into the washing machine.
Although the blanket can be washed in a machine, you can not dry it in a dryer. The manufacturer has clearly stated to not put it in the dryer.
- A lot of heat settings to choose from.
- Heats up in no time.
- Heats up well even in lower settings.
- You could wash it in the machine.
- No Cons.
Just another electric blanket that is made up of 100% polyster and comes wtih all the advanced feature that we get to see with the other brands. The heating is quick and the freedom to choose between 10 heat settings makes it a good choice for almost anyone.
7. Beautyrest Blanket – With 20 Heat Levels
This is by far the most advanced electric blanket that we have ever reviewed.
But its also expensive, let’s not shy away with that.
The blanket is made up of microlight plush and sherpa Berber and comes with 20 temperature levels to choose from.
If you can spend a couple of dollars extra as compared to the other premium blankets then you would get some really advanced features for that price.
Our In-Depth Review:
Let’s start with the feature that is truly exceptional on this electric blanket, 20 heat levels. The maximum levels that we got to see before this were 10 temp settings, but with the 20 levels, the chances of getting that precise heating that you want are way too high.
Also as compared to another blanket, this one comes with much softer fabric, microlight plush. This makes sure that you are getting the most comfortable experience while using this electric blanket. The blanket is also reversible and has the sherpa on the other side which makes the other side comfortable too.
The electric blanket also comes with the preheating feature, that warms the electric blanket before you snuggle into it. This is actually one of those features that you do not get to see in a lot of electric blankets.
The blanket is not just machine washable but is also reversible which means you can actually use them from both the side.
- A lot of heat settings.
- It could be used from both sides.
- Long remote control wire.
- Uneven heating.
- Temperature readings are hard to read.
Although the 20 heat level settings and the pre heat options are great, there are some issues with the blanket too that could not be overloooked. Also the price of the blanket is quite high, so we recommend you to think wisely.
8. Wapaneus Blanket – With Long Power Cable
The WAPANEUS Electric heated blanket is an ETL certified electric heated blanket that has 3 heat settings to choose from.
It’s made of skin-friendly material on both sides, just to ensure extra warmth and comfort.
It also has a quick-heating feature that can help you fight back the cold and ensure your comfort in a short time. In this Winter season, considering getting one of these might be a good idea.

It is important to be sure of the safety of any product you are buying. When it comes to buying an electric blanket, safety is a key concern to most buyers.
Nobody wants to be a victim of tragedy as a result of an accident with one electric blanket and that is why it is crucial to check whether a blanket has the UL MARK OR THE ETL mark on it. UL is a company specializing in safety regulations for electrical bedding as well as ETL.
Both have similar safety requirements, which ensures that it is safe to use if your blanket has these markings. If you don’t have these markings on the blanket you’re looking to purchase, note that this blanket is likely to be dangerous to use.
