      If there’s one thing that I can say for the Sunbeam Therabeads Cordless Heating Pad, it left me with such a memorable experience that I doubt I’ll ever forget. I don’t mean that in a positive sense, either. The regular price for this heating pad is seventeen dollars, but I got it on sale for twelve dollars and ninety-nine cents. I wish it hadn’t been on sale because I wouldn’t have bought it. I personally haven’t had any luck with Sunbeam products, although I have a friend who seems to enjoy the heating pads made by this company quite a lot. There was no way even she could possibly enjoy this product after I showed her what had happened to it upon following the directions. The heating pad needed to be placed in the microwave and so I did. I went in another room while the microwave was

      heating the heating pad. The microwave goes off, I return, open the door, and there in front of me is a melted mess with small beads scattered all about. What a wonderful sight that only seemed to make the ache in my neck and shoulders all the more noticeable.

      Something that’s supposed to go in the microwave shouldn’t melt. It’s ridiculous that a product that needs to be heated in the microwave ends up getting destroyed in the process. The reason I choose something like this was because I felt it would be safer than going with the heating pads that are electric. I also figured something like this would last me longer than an electric heating pad. Boy was I ever wrong there! I wonder what would have happened if I would have placed this heating pad in the freezer? The directions stated that I could if ...


      • I wanted to place something cold up against aching muscles. I wonder if the heating pad would have cracked? I certainly didn’t go back to the store to buy another one and try! Besides, I wanted heat because heat feels heavenly when applied to muscles that are hurting or stiff. The cheapness of this heating pad astounded me. Absolutely astounded me. Even if I had paid less money for the heating pad, I’d still be upset.

        The Sunbeam Therabeads Cordless Heating Pad is a product that had a great deal of potential to be a quality product. No cords and no electricity, for one, so I wouldn’t have to worry about being near an outlet. I could use it anywhere. Plus, no cords or electricity means less danger. No batteries needed and so I wouldn’t have to keep buying batteries for the heating pad, thus no repeat expenses

        associated with the heating pad. The material felt soft to the touch and flexible thanks to the hydroscopic therabeads, so I was looking forward to having this heating pad placed comfortably against my body for an extended period of time. I figured since the bag was to be heated by the microwave, I would be able to get a lot of use out of it, since there were no electronic pieces that could go bad on the inside. The potential was definitely there, but the product was of such incredibly poor quality that just one two minute session in the microwave caused the heating pad itself to break down, split and become totally and completely unusable. Incredibly disappointing and even more incredibly surprising. How a product such as this one could make it to the market is baffling. A “1″ rating is easily the most appropriate rating I could give this product.
