26 November 2011

We've examined two blankets from Dreamland in our latest round of tests

The latest Which? tests have revealed three new Best Buy electric blankets that'll help you stay warm this winter.

We tested five new electric blankets from Dreamland, Slumberland and Morphy Richards. 

Which? Home researcher Matt Clear said: 'Some of these blankets really stood out in our tests. One of them took only six minutes to heat up to 15ºC, making it the fastest-heating blanket we've seen.'

New blankets

Dreamland, Slumberland and Morphy Richards are three of the most popular electric blanket brands. They've just arrived in the shops. We sent them straight to our testing lab and have now published our full review.

The full list of new blankets we've reviewed is:

  • Dreamland Intelliheat Fleecy Heated Underblanket
  • Dreamland Ready for Bed Heated Underblanket
  • Morphy Richards Fleece Washable Heated Underblanket 75181
  • Morphy Richards Washable Underblanket 75184
  • Slumberland Heated Mattress Topper

We began testing electric blankets earlier this year as a result of requests from hundreds of Which? members, and now have reviews of 13 blankets, with six Best Buys.

We test how long it takes electric blankets to heat up, what temperatures they can reach, how evenly they distribute heat and how much energy they use. We also rate them for ease of use - including how easy it is to put them on the bed and use the controls, and how comfortable they are - and for ease of washing and drying.
