Finding a Good Electric Blanket

October 24, 2019

Is there an electric blanket made for the California king mattress? The Cal king mattress is 4" longer than the standard king mattress. Sunbeam only refers to the king size blanket (100" x 90"). It seems to me the regular king blanket would be too short for the Cal king.

Thanks for any help/advice.

There are not a lot of different ones available but the one advertised at Bed, Bath & Beyond looks good.
The size given is 108x90 and cost is $199.00.

There are a couple advertised on Amazon but you would have to be very careful because most of the ads do not state a size.
This one shows 108x90 (also $199) and weighs 11 pounds.

The problem I see is it looks like the same blanket being sold by another seller states measurements at 101x90 and weight 10.1 pounds.
This makes me think you should not buy this particular brand unless you could see it in a store.

Macy's also has several listed with good measurements but their prices are almost double over Bed,Bath & Beyond ($250-600).

I would recommend trying to find a cover for your blanket that could be laundered when necessary.
The first blanket also has a cover included.

You are right the regular king size will not fit your bed. We had to find a larger blanket for a bed for my granddaughter and the only place we could find this was at Bed Bath and Beyond.

They have it all there and they have a very large selection to choose from.

Big Problem, the Cal King blanket I ordered from Bed Bath was listed as 90x108. Problem is the blanket is 90 LONG X 108 WIDE, thats the same length as a King size.

I wanted to know if anyone had advice on electric blankets. It seems like every time I buy one they say 1 or 2 year warranty but after a couple weeks it seems like they are not hot like when your first use them. Just wondering if anyone knows why.



Thanks,
Sherry from Portland, ME

I have been researching electric blankets for over a week. I have found 2 websites that have been helpful.
They are: electricblanketinstitute.com and sleeplikethedead.com

However, I am still looking to find a brand that can be both washed and dried and will still work. I have found precious few reviews regarding the durability after laundering. Does anyone have any experience with brands that still perform well after being washed? Thanks.

Insted of washing your eletric blanket make a cover for it and when gets dirty,wash just the cover,that simple.

Mine is a beautyrest model sceb and it says not to wash and put in dryer but I did. Just enough to dry it, not to make it hot then let it air dry for 24 hours.
