Safety

Can I use an extension cord with my warming product?

No. All Sunbeam® Warming Products should be directly connected to a 110-120 volt outlet.

Can anyone use a Sunbeam® Warming Product?

For the most part, anyone can enjoy Sunbeam® warming products. However, we do not recommend using our Warming Product with an infant, young child, an incapacitated person, a paraplegic, a quadriplegic, a diabetic person, someone insensitive to heat or anyone who cannot clearly understand the instructions and operate the controls.
