Winter is here, and we are layering up all of our thermals, jumpers and cardigans to keep us warm.

But for those who are still looking to keep the chill at bay, especially at bedtime, there is one thing high on our radar - an electric heated blanket. Which is where the Silentnight Comfort Control Electric Blanket comes in.

Why we rate it

The Silentnight Comfort Control Electric Blanket ticks all the boxes, as it is insulating, consumes low energy and is machine washable.

The design is made from soft microfleece, which offers extra overheat protection for your safety.

The blanket has a detachable control so you can adjust the temperature to suit your preference, as well as three heat settings.

It takes just 10 minutes to heat up, so you can say bye to cold feet this winter, plus it’s been BEAB approved so you are safe to use.

A double blanket on Amazon retails for £25, while the King size has been reduced from £42.99 to £29.90, and the single costs £17.99 down from £25.99.

What the reviews say

The Silentnight Comfort Control Electric Blanket has racked up over 10,000 reviews on Amazon.

  • “This product was a great addition to my bed. It only takes a few minutes until it reaches it's max temperature and warms up the majority of the bed. The blanket doesn't get too hot that it's scolding but will have to be turned down when sleeping.”

  • “We put off buying an electric blanket for years, but now we have this one, we regret not buying one before. The dual controls mean we can both have our side of the bed at a temperature to suit us both. This has also save a few pennies on the heating bill.”

  • “I should've got one of these much earlier! Warms up within minutes after which I turn it off, and it stays off the rest of the night. Solved the problem of getting warm and staying warm throughout the night in a cold draughty room.”

  • “I bought this for my sister as she suffers severely from back pain. She’s been sleeping with a hot water bottle for months and I can honestly say this has helped her. The difference this has made to her sleep routine has been great and it’s lovely to see her in less pain from such a simple change.”

  • “Best purchase of my life!”
