I am naturally a 'feel the cold' person so this purchase has been amazing for me :)
I started chemotherapy in September and take a rest every day, 5 or so mins before getting in to bed I turn it on to no 5 and it makes the bed so toasty and comfortable. Aids better sleep. I also use it wrapped around my arm to help ease the discomfort of the picc line I have in place, apparently the warmth helps prevent veins closing around the line too tightly. My husband used it on a bad back recently too. Overall I really rate this product. Much quicker and easier than a hottie and just as good. 5 heats up to really nice and hot but if you want to go to sleep with it I'd turn it down to 1 or 2 and it shuts itself off after 3 hours by which point your body should be nice and warm anyway! Highly recommend :)

It was delivered very quickly.

Received today.
Compared to my old one (which was getting worn and probably dangerous) I am very impressed.

Simple to set up with an easy controller and done in minutes.

With no separate cover I won't suffer the twists and turns the old one was subjected to.

Hard to believe that they are now washable!

The local fire brigade have been warning of the dangers of worn,old electric blankets and heatpads.
So, even if you are not buying a new one I would recommend that you check out what you have now before winter sets in.

I'm very pleased with what appears to be great value for money.

Great for my backache and to keep my feet warm at night!

A Happy Bunny!

I suffer from Fibromyalgia, and the cold weather (amongst other things) causes me more pain. I was fed up juggling hot water bottles and microwaveable heat pads around, so I thought I'd buy this heat pad since it had good reviews.

After using it for about an hour on my lower back and hip area, my pain had reduced quite considerably. It's so easy to use: Just plug it in and switch it on, and that's it. You press another button to control the temperature. And at 1p for three hours use, you can't complain at that.

If you're swithering about buying this product, don't! Just get one. It's well worth the money.

I bought this heat pad based on other customer reviews. I had been borrowing a friends heat pad for a while which after returning thought I should get my own one. At first I was a little disappointed as it didn't seem to get as hot as my friends one, so I contacted customer services at Dreamland and they replied to me very promptly and also gave me their number should I wish to chat more. I spoke to the customer services manager who was very helpful and she explained how that the old pads without the disconnecting sockets used to get very hot but that they were not very safe and that laws had changed to make them safer but not so hot that they could burn you. The lady suggested putting a towel over the heat pad to retain heat and that the heat was to be warm and constant rather than scolding hot. I was also told to advise my friend to get their heat pad checked just to make sure it was still safe (it is very old) I have since warmed to my heat pad and am much happier with it now and am glad I spoke to Dreamland direct. I am also pleased that it has a 3 year guarantee which I think is excellent value for the price you pay for the pad.

I bought this because my old Dreamland heatpad had seen better days and, as I tended to fold it up when I used it, decided I wasn't worth the effort anymore and quit on me without warning.

I hunted and searched for a replacement product, briefly considering a more expensive German product but hoped that this would do the trick as I didn't want the thing shutting down on me if it thought I was misusing it (apparently a "safety feature" on the German products). *I'd* like to decide if I am misusing something and placing a pillow firmly against the heatpad when the pain is really intense shouldn't warrant the product shutting itself off, in my opinion.

This arrived and within a minute was set up and heating nicely. Comfortable warmth with easy to use and understand controls.

I'm very happy (and relieved) that I bought this heatpad.

I have been using a Dreamland heatpad on a daily basis 365 days per year for 10 years or more. I wore out one, then bought another the same and it finally stopped working last week after over 5 years punishing use. They've been brilliant, so I was relieved to see that I was able to buy another one.

What a surprise to receive such a gorgeous thing! So cosy and beautifully designed and made, compared to the previous model. And, astonishingly, you can put it in the washing machine. I plugged it in and turned it on straight away. My only concern is that it will not be hot enough. It seems ok, but using it tonight will be the test.

On my old Dreamland heat pads I would heat it at 2 [out of 3] then turn it down to 1 for the night. For really difficult pain, I could turn it up to 3.

This heatpad has 5 settings. I doubt I will use it at any less than the maximum 5 setting.

The heatpad turns off automatically after 3 hours which is a great feature.

I can only give 4 stars until I test it for sufficient heat.

I have now slept with it for 2 nights. It is certainly hot enough to warm the bed at '5' and then needs to be turned down to '3' at a certain point while falling asleep. So it does work similarly to my two previous Dreamland heatpads. For instant dramatic when necessary thereputic effect, I think there is still nothing to beat a hot water bottle, which in the privacy of your own home you are not restricted by EU directives.

All that said, I would highly recommend this product for its cosiness and gentle loving constant heat. Stellar improvement on previous model. Brilliant. I love it.

This heating pad has been really good. I was given it to help me with pain I suffer from due to a serious illness. It has really helped with regard to this. It is also a great foot warmer!

It is easy to control with the switch on the user control, and you can get significantly different levels of heat on the different settings.

I often fall asleep whilst using it, but it turns itself off automatically after three hours which is useful

Recommended.

An excellent replacement for the (very) old predecessor.
It would be even better if one could choose the setting on the cut-off timer and also if a cotton (washable) cover was available.

This blanket is worth its weight in gold. I bought it after experiencing some problems with my back and have used it hundreds of times since. It provides enough heat to ease muscle pain but isn't uncomfortably hot. It turns itself off after a few hours so i would often go to sleep with it on. Would give this more than 5 stars if I could - it's been a saviour!!

I suffer from a terrible back problem and when pain killers just aren't doing their job heat can make a difference. I've tried loads of different heat pads and yes they have been good at first but after a while when you've led on them or had them on a chair the curl up and the element inside gets uncomfortable.
I was having a really bad time with my back and my last heat pad pack up and my partner said he'd get me a new one. He bought me this one and it's been brilliant. I've had it now for about five months and it's like new. The only thing I would say as a negative is that where the mains lead enters the heat pad it's self is a tiny bit bulky if you lie on it but don't be put off cos otherwise it's great. So we ordered another one for my parter cos he kept borrowing mine. I would definitely recommend it.
