Great one. High quality and good price. Using the 3qt one for 5 years+.
Made in Janpanese one is over price IMO, Unless you really want to pay 50% premium for a slightly 5% different in qualify. Plus, they are mostly designed for janpan domestic consumer with unique features, which may not be so useful for many. Keep in mind, they are all same brand. No companies will risk in destroying their brand by offering low quality product, regardless of where to make them.
I like Panasonic small appliance products more than other brand.
Believe it or not, I got a zojirushi rusted on me.
I believe you
It took ONE attempt to dissolve some CLR into the water and let it cook /boil for half an hour and acidic (or alcali - "whatever") vapors caused rust along the rim of the water vessel on the very top of the unit.
Wiping with a paper towel soaked in water and baking soda took care of most of it. I still use CLR, but I never let it boil, so it does its magic with the bottom deposits, then I follow up with strong baking soda solution that takes care of what CLR could not and neutralizes CLR, then thorough wash and the vessel looks great. Mine is probably around 8-10 years old - in this time it needed 2 gaskets to reduce vapor leakage --> water condensation at the top, but it is still used daily.
