As winter season fast approaches, I am taken back to last winter when I had to peruse through the market looking for heated blankets. I wasn’t just looking for a nice looking heated blanket; I was looking for one which could completely shield me against the chilly weather conditions. Frankly speaking, I had to kiss several frogs before landing on the princess, or do I say, princesses?
I am currently still armed with my SoftHeat’s soft fleece heated blanket which has proven quite an asset. It has been my companion for those chilly nights when cuddling up on the couch is no longer enough to keep the cold away. I also have several items which I had tried out before settling for the SoftHeat’s soft fleece heated blankets.
Of course, some heated blankets were so-so while others offered a show-off performance. For today’s discussion, I will stick to those which proved worth a purchase.

Top 9 Best Heated Blanket in 2018
#9 Sunbeam LoftTech Heated Blanket
This is one of the items I found worth a purchase. Sunbeam had always been my number one brand until I found my current heated blanket where I have stuck to date. I have no complaints as far as the performance of this heated blanket is concerned.
In fact, my selection for the SoftHeat’s soft fleece heated blanket is based on personal preference and tastes. One of the notable features I couldn’t resist was the comfortTec controller which came with push button and digital display controls for ultimate performance and convenience.
Another impressive aspect about this heated blanket was the preheat feature which could heat the sheets before bedtime for a warm and toasty sleep.
#8 Sunbeam Microplush Throw Camelot Cuddler Heated Electric Warming Blanket
Like I earlier pointed out, Sunbeam had been my best brand for decades. Perhaps that’s why I find most of their heated blankets extremely impressive.
And yes, I also came across this blanket last winter when I was looking for a nice heated blanket to keep me warm and toasty on those cold nights. Of course, this blanket proved to be a worthy companion for those cold nights.
Machine washable; perhaps the fact that it came with a 5-year warranty partly convinced me. Additionally, I found its luxurious velvet plush quite comfortable and warm enough to keep one toasty and form a tough shield against the cold. Furthermore, the size was also ideal for me and Simba (my cat pet) to slide in and have a warm night.
#7 Sunbeam Velvet Plush Heated Blanket, King Size
I sound biased now, right? Sunbeam once again! Am sure most people are now raising eyebrows. Easy, easy! I simply couldn’t help but love these heated blankets. They are simply amazing and if you’re looking for top performance, they deliver! Back to this particular blanket, it boasts a velvet construction which makes it quite amazing.
The ten heat settings with preheat and optional auto-off function make it even better and highly reliable. The unique and exclusive wiring system adjusts heat across the blanket for ultimate performance. Again, this is a machine washable as well as dryer safe heated blanket which made it even more appealing to me.
#6 Sunbeam Luxurious Velvet Plush King Heated Blanket
Sunbeam once more! Perhaps you need to also check these heated blankets out. I do not know the owners of Sunbeam and neither I’m I a promoter of their products. I happen to sincerely find their heated blankets worth a purchase. Perhaps I should also challenge you to give them a try if you want to have an excellent time during the fast-approaching winter season.
Why did I like this heated blanket? Well, first and foremost, I found the soft velvet plush extremely impressive. The king-size with twenty heat settings make it ideal for you and your entire family (Assuming it isn’t too large). The selectable auto-off function is yet another feature I found impressive about this heated blanket.
#5 Sunbeam – Queen Size Heated Blanket Luxurious Velvet Plush
This is yet another incredible item from Sunbeam which I also came across in my quest to unravel the best-heated blanket. The soft and attractive design with soft velvet plush makes this blanket impressive. The queen size is another feature you can never resist about this blanket.
And yes, I also couldn’t help mentioning the fact that this blanket comes with a preheat feature with twenty personal heat settings for ultimate performance and comfort. If you want to have a soothing and relaxing night, then this would be an ideal blanket for you to check out.
#4 Soft Heat Ultra Micro-Plush Low-Voltage Electric Heated Blanket
Like I pointed out, I am currently using a SoftHeat’s soft fleece heated blanket. And yes, it isn’t this particular model although they have so much in common. Frankly speaking, I think the market for heated blankets is a two horse race where the two horses are “SoftHeat and Sunbeam”.
That aside, this is a 100% blanket which also proved to have what it takes. The luxuriously soft micro-plush fabric is simply irresistible while the decorative triple-rip design spices up the experience making this blanket a must-have.
I found the patented safe and warm no-hazardous low volts technology quite appealing. In a jiffy, this is an extremely safe heated blanket. The energy saving feature boasted by the fact that it automatically shuts off after 10 hours saves on juice consumption thus considerably slashing down electricity cost.
#3 Sunbeam Quilted Fleece Heated Blanket
Sunbeam again opens up the top three positions. I found this blanket quite amazing as well thanks to its EasySet Pro Controller boasting ten heat settings and a 10-hour automated off-function.
The advanced technology senses and controls warmth and heat considerably thus offering adequate control and comfort. And yes, I also found the 100% polyester construction extremely appealing and adequately comfortable.
#2 Sunbeam Microplush Heated Blanket, Queen
I also found this BSM9BQS-R772-16A00 model of the famous and renowned Sunbeam Company quite impressive. Coming on the second tier position, this is yet another incredible item whose performance is top-notch. The ComfortTec controller which boasts push button and digital display controls make this a must-have item.
The pre-heat feature ensures that your cold sheets are warmed up before you go to bed while the 10 heat settings coupled with 10-hour auto-off feature make it quite incredible.
#1 Soft Heat Luxury Micro-Fleece Low-Voltage Electric Heated King Size Blanket
I earlier pointed out that the market for heated blankets is a two-horse race, right? Well, the truth just came out! The top position goes to this SoftHeat’s soft fleece heated blanket. This is the item I told you I currently possess. Speaking from a first-hand experience, this is an extremely soft polyester-made blanket.
The luxurious soft micro-fleece fabric makes it quite soft and comfortable while the washable and dryable design makes it a must-have. I find this heated blanket quite attractive as well.
