The Rest Secure Restwarmer Dual Control Mattress Pad is a heated mattress pad made of pure polyester. Here are the things you should know before you purchase this product:
First, this product is designed to fit over your current mattress up to 12 inches deep, which covers the vast majority of mattresses. If you have a deeper pillow-top mattress, you may want to measure its depth first, or else purchase some elastic extensions to help hold this on your bed. It goes on like a fitted sheet, and despite the heat coils inside, it is perfectly safe to machine wash and hang dry, which is a feature we really like. It isn’t very convenient to have a heated mattress pad that you have to wipe clean with a rag when needed, so being machine washable is a must in our eyes.
Another big plus with the Rest Secure heated pad is that it is designed with dual remote controls, so each person can set their own heat level. The controls are also very simple to use, so no worries there. You have 5 different levels to choose from, but almost certainly your preference will be different from your partners which is when this feature comes in handy. You can crank up to level 5 and your partner can be at level 1, so everyone is happy. Another design feature that works out well is that the power source plugs in on the side, not at the top. A number of heated mattress pads put the plug in port on the top which can be a bit of a pain depending on your headboard and how you sleep. Typically this being on the side will keep it out of your way.
Besides the dual remotes, another feature to be aware of is that this is designed to have the heat warmer at the foot of the bed. Many consider this a positive, and you may too, but you should at least make a note of it. Are your feet constantly cold when you sleep? If so, this is a big bonus? If you wouldn’t like that, this may not be for you. It does have heating coils throughout the mattress, they are just more concentrated in certain areas.
You’ll probably like this better than using a heated blanket, if you’ve used those before. We all know that heat rises, so the concept of having the heat beneath you tends to make for a better arrangement. You don’t really feel the coils underneath you, so there is sufficient padding to make this pretty comfortable. All in all, the Rest Secure Heated Mattress Pad gives you a good amount of features for the price.
