Cons

There were some minor complaints about the Sunbeam Royal Dreams Heated Electric Blanket. Some didn’t like the material saying it was too thin and you could feel the heating wires. Strangely others loved how soft, comfortable and soothing the blanket felt (go figure).

Others said that the blanket did not warm up sufficiently to their liking.

Quite a number phoned their complaints through to Sunbeam who recommended they do the “fold test”. To do the fold test you fold the blanket up as you would a normal blanket and then plug it in. After a couple of minutes you slide your hands between the folds to check for warmth. If you could feel the warmth the blanket was operating normally. I have personally made this mistake before and only realized how hot the blanket became when it was placed beneath the covers.

Evidently there were a number of people who experienced blinking controllers – before doing anything else first check to see if the plug is inserted correctly and secondly unplug it, wait 15 to 20 min then plug it in again to see if that solves the problem.

 

Summary

Taking into consideration the price the Sunbeam Royal Dreams Heated Electric Blanket is a solid, quality electric blanket from Sunbeam that should meet all your expectations.
