Electric blankets on Shabbat


One may use an electric blanket on Shabbat, assuming it was turned on before Shabbat. One may not adjust the temperature, though. One must also cover the controls as a reminder to keep him from adjusting them, and one must do something similar at the outlet as a reminder not to unplug it.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Orach Chaim 3:50)

חג אורים שמח,
