    A nice, but rare heating pad that does not contain that horrible automatic turn off. When I need the heat for my back, I get to decide when I have had enough. The cover is soft and I love it. I bought two.

    For the price, this heating pad works just fine. The cover slips off too easy, but I fixed that by putting safety pins in it. Sometimes it gets a bit wrinkly and doesn't stay smooth, but that 's okay too. It heats up pretty quick, and you do have a choice in temperature so it all evens out in the end.
    I like it.

      This sunbeam heating pad is the perfect pad for me. Model #756-5 has no auto shut off so it stays on until I am ready to turn it off. No frills just a basic heating pad with 3 temperature settings, an inexpensive polyester cover and a long 9 ft cord. The price is right so I own several of this pad model that I use for an animal application as well as for my arthritis.

        Comments about Sunbeam Standard Heating Pad, 1 ea:

        I have used heating pads for many years due to back pain so I have experience with many products. This is the cheapest, most poorly constructed heating pad I have ever seen. The pad is made of plastic that bunches up and won't lay flat. If you don't mind laying on a lumpy pad that won't lay flat - this product is for you! The only plus this heating pad offers is a on-off switch that doesn't shut off after a short period of time. If I had one word to describe this heating pad I'd say "junk."

          This order was made to replace the same brand heating pad we had for many, many years. The size is perfect for me, the heat settings ample and there is no heavy control hanging and pulling on the cord.

            It's difficult to find a pad without the auto shut off feature. This one works great and at a reasonable price. I have several of these. Good value and they seem to last.

            Comments about Sunbeam Standard Heating Pad, 1 ea:

            This is a very basic, generic heating pad. I have a problem finding a LOW setting that isn't too hot for me. This one has a LOW heat that is just perfect. However, like many heating pads used daily, it lasts about a year before it starts to fall apart. The cord on this one has started to separate and has partially ripped at the point where it attaches to the pad. The sliding control sometimes needs to be "rebooted" to get it on the proper setting.

            I am so glad it stays on and does not have auto-shut off. The last one that I had auto-shut off and it failed. I do not like the cover that comes with the pad. I make my own covers for the pads because I like an all cotton cover.

                  This heating pad is perfect for use in seed germination. Just pad it with a couple layers of fabric to reduce the temperature slightly. Excellent!

                  Disappointed in it overall. I have to put it on max heat to get the comfort I want. But it only lasts that hot for a few minutes before it starts to cool down. Nowhere does it say it has an auto shut off function yet it controls the heat, not me. Don't recommend at all.

                      Looked far and wide for a heating pad without an automatic shut-off to replace one we have had over 14yrs. Original pad was purchased to keep newborn puppies warm. Now the mama dog is 15yo and needs to keep warm. It's perfect for our needs. So far the quality is excellent.

                          I've had my Sunbeam heating pad for years. It's never let me down and has provided tons of relief. I use it now when doing castor oil packs. Today, my pad just died & I will surely be replacing it with the same type!

                          Sunbeam Standard Heating Pad

                           – To relieve muscle and joint pain with soothing and comforting heat therapy, the Sunbeam Standard Heating pad is not just effective, but convenient as well. With easy-to-use controls and an extra-long 9-foot cord for any standard American 110-volt outlet, the pad can be used whenever or wherever it is needed. The Ultraheat Technology from Sunbeam provides even, consistent heat, available at three different settings for just the right level of relief. For household use, the pad comes with a 5-year limited warranty.

                          The Benefits of Heat Therapy



                          The application of warmth to muscles and joints has long been a method recommended by physical therapists for the reduction of pain. This technique has also been found to be effective in addressing joint inflammation, not only reducing soreness but promoting an improved range of motion as well. Many people with arthritis, muscle sprains or strains, lower back pain or soreness from exercise or work have found the use of heating pads to be a fast, easy way to reduce discomfort. If you have an injury or a medical condition, talk to your doctor and ask if heat therapy is a good option for you.

                          Easy to Use and Maintain



                          The controls of the Sunbeam Standard Heating Pad are designed to be easy to use, even with hands suffering from arthritis. Offering a handy 12x15" size, the pad can be applied to a variety of locations. The soft cloth cover has snap closures, to keep it securely over the pad. To clean, remove the cover and machine or hand wash in cold water with a mild detergent. Then simply hang or machine dry in a cool, gentle cycle.
