Panasonic does not sell replacement cooking bowls for its automatic mini rice cooker (model SR-G06FG), as of March 2015. To avoid damaging the inner cooking bowl, consumers should always use the plastic rice scoop provided.
The inner cooking bowl is made from aluminum with a non-stick coating. With extended use, some consumers report that the interior of the bowl becomes damaged. To avoid scratching the non-stick surface, consumers should wash the bowl with a sponge and never a scrubber. Pushing against the bottom of the bowl can also damage the pan.
Consumers should only use the cooking bowl provided with the rice cooker, or the appliance could malfunction.
