Water Resistant Heated Mattress Pad
I rarely ever review products... ever. This product, however, is beyond expectations. I'm always cold when I get into bed, even with flannel sheets. To the surprise of many Americans, Atlanta can get frigid in the winter and we've had white Christmases before. My husband likes his "refreshingly cold" sheets since he seems to have an internal furnace that is enviably toasty at night. The dual controls means that I can get it warm on my side when I get in and keep his side "refreshing"... whatever that means. I usually put it on high 30 mins. before and then turn it down to a 2 once I've warmed up and sleep sets in. Whoever gave this product a "Disappointed" rating is off their rocker. The material of the pad is fabric and not at all "papery" and I wouldn't sleep directly on it... I'd put on my own sheets on top of it! Furthermore, the thinness of the pad does mean that the heat permeates quickly through your top sheets instead of seeping slowly in. It wasn't meant to be a cushioned topper. Finally, yes dual controls mean that there are two separate wires to plug into a socket. Most outlets have two plugs and if lamps are utilizing that particular socket, then just put in a multi plug socket that can accept more than two appliances. You can get that at any home improvement store for $2. All in all, this product has made climbing into bed less resentful of my warm-blooded husband and given me a more comfortable slumber.

It was obvious the moment I removed the warming pad from the packaging that the quality is superior to any other mattress pad I have owned, whether electric or not. The fabric quality is great, and it FIT MY BED, which is more than I can say for most mattress pads, including the ones that are designed for deep mattresses. The control doesn't slide around and fall off the nightstand, which is another plus. The pre-warm feature is awesome, and the heat from the pad is consistent, from top to bottom. I LOVE this mattress pad.

Wonderful heated mattress pad
I've only had this mattress pad for a week, so I cannot speak for durability. However, I can say I have been shopping and waiting for a heated mattress pad to pre-warm the bed where you could not feel the wires and this is it! After reading reviews saying the pad did not get very warm, the first night I followed directions and preheated the pad, set at 10. My bed was so warm, I had to peel back the blanket and wait for it to cool down. Since then I have experimented and discovered that setting it on 2 takes away the chill of slipping into cold sheets and prewarms the bed sufficiently for me. I love it! I have a 3" memory foam topper on top of my mattress, and the pad is big enough to fit over both, so would fit the deeper mattresses. I am very sensitive, and cannot detect any hint of wires under me. I would recommend this to anyone who hates to climb into cold sheets. The controIs are attached at the head of the bed, so you do not have to thread cords under the bed back up to the wall as most electric blanket do. I do wish it was zoned so that it was warmer on the feet than up at the head of the bed under the pillows, but this is a very minor flaw.

great warmth and quality
I've had this pad for about 2 months and love it! The heat is super toasty and the pad feels quite comfortable. Having dual controls is really nice since my partner doesn't need as much heat as I do. I get pretty cold in the winter and this keeps the bed warm all night. I usually have to turn it off in the middle of the night.

One of the best things I've ever purchased!
I didn't know I needed this bed warmer until I saw it in the catalog. Life changing in that I will never get in to a cold bed again! Definitely warm as I've only used it on level 1 at the beginning of the winter. We are actually going to replace our thermostat to have one that we can program to heat the room in the morning and allow us to set the heat significantly lower at night. Would definitely buy again and recommend to others!

I just finished my second winter using the mattress pad. As others have mentioned, it is one of the best purchases I have ever made! Wisconsin winters are long and cold and the pad really helps. It first dawned on me to search for a heated pad after getting a massage where the bed was covered with one. I stumbled on this one after an internet search. It is a fabulous feeling to get into a warm bed especially after spending a night at the hockey rink! :) It's an affordable luxury and anyone who tends to be colder like me or needs heat therapy should get one.

Best purchase ever!
I don't know why we didn't get this product a long time ago. Living in Ohio now after growing up in South Florida, I was always dreading that first entrance into bed in the winter. No more! I just turn the controls on to HI about a half and hour before getting into bed and it's wonderful. The dual controls are perfect as my husband doesn't like it as warm- we turn it down for sleeping to LO - and if you get a little chilled in the early morning hours, just put it back up to 4 to quickly warm you up. NO blanket is needed. We just have a light chenille bedspread. This is a wonderful item with excellent quality.

No more getting into a cold bed
This was the answer to a warm, not hot, cozy bed. My husband tends to be cold, but never liked the idea of an electric blanket due to possible health concerns. This was the answer, it took the chill out of getting into bed, assuming you preheated. It only uses DC current, therefore, no potential health issues. I preheat my side with high and turn it off when I go to sleep and he preheats, then turns it down to a 3. It really is a wonderful, good quality product. The wiring/plugs/remotes are so much better than anything else I have seen out there. I cannot imagine ever being without it.

I bought one of these for mine and my husbands bed and I LOVED it so when we made our daughters baby bed to a full size, I ordered another for it, since I knew most of my time would be spent in there. I hope they never change this and always keep it available!!!!!!! It is incredible!!!

A great comfort
We find this product adds a lot of comfort in the winter. The wires are 'invisible' in use. We don't have to load up the bed with covers. Has lasted well, and this includes the skirt.
We actually use the product 'upside down', because the (apparent) greater density of heating elements at the head end make it seem overly warm, even at a setting of 3, once the bed has been fully warmed. Reversing the pad does make the control set-up and use a little less convenient, but this is a minor issue, since it is now more 'set it and forget it'.
