Coating can peel if sharp utensils are placed or used in the inner pan.
Heavy-duty sponges can cause the non-stick coating to scratch off.
If the keep warm function is used longer than 12 hours, moisture in rice can penetrate through the non-stick coating and bind to it.
Some models are recommended for cooking plain white rice only so be sure to avoid cooking any other types of grains in those models e.g. JNP models.
Avoid using spices, salt, butter, oil or vinegar in the inner pan.
Some models have gaskets on the outer lid which tends to hold the water during the cooking process. Please rinse and wipe dry at every use otherwise dew may drip into the inner pan and will cause lifting of the coating.
