The Sunbeam Microplush Warming throw is the smaller couch-sized version of the well regarded Microplush Warming Blanket. The throw version has three heat settings and comes in 15 colors and patterns. A three-hour auto shutoff is a safety feature you'll find on most electric blankets and throws. We didn't find this throw included in any professional reviews (we could not find any expert reviews of electric throws), but it's well regarded in about 50 user reviews we found at a variety of websites.
Most owners say this throw is a good solution for a cold couch, and more than one says that it solved some conflicts over the thermostat setting at home. On the downside, because of the three-hour shutoff, the Warming Throw really can't double as an electric blanket for your bed since it would keep turning itself off after three hours. Take a look at the blanket version, the Sunbeam Microplush Warming Blanket (*Est. $85 to $150) if you need something for your bed. This blanket has a 10-hour shutoff and also gets good reviews.
