The best king-sized electric blankets should conform with Underwriters Laboratories standards of safety. The heating settings should include a reasonable selection that would make the electric blanket usable for cool summer nights to freezing temperatures in winter. Bonus safety features such as automatic shutoff should be among the top considerations. Dual-zone control would be a nice feature for people who share the bed with a partner. The control buttons should be easy to manage whether the heating element is controlled with an analog dial or digital buttons. Due to its size, a king blanket should be machine washable and easy to maintain for practical reasons.
