Inner pot break down after 1 year and no replacement

Summary: I bought this rice cooker back in September 2009 (wish the other review come out earlier) and the rice cook worked greatly. However, about a few weeks back, I noticed some small silver spot on the inner pot (the coating is broken down) and I started search the internet for a replacement inner pot. After an extensive search, I could not find any and went to Sanyo's parts distributor and found out that the inner pot was discontinued.
Summary: This is now our third rice cooker. We don't use it every day, but I do make a number of dishes frequently that require rice. The ability to dump rice and water and press a button makes this very worthwhile. Previous cookers either scorched the rice on the bottom and/or made a nasty disgusting mass of starch. Not so here. Handy markers inside tell you how much water to add depending on the amount of rice you're cooking.
Summary: I went back and forth between this one and a more expensive Zojirushi machine, but ultimately decided to save around $50 and get this model. For our 2 person household, it's a great machine. Pros: - Set it and forget it rice making. I don't have to watch the pot. - Multiple settings for rice, porridge, brown rice, etc. I've even cooked polenta and risotto perfectly in here. - Easy cleanup due to the stick free surfaces.
Summary: This cute little rice cooker is awesome. My daughter spent 3 weeks in Costa Rica in June with a "host family". She sent many emails back home, and spoke often of the rice served at every meal. I bought this cooker while she was gone, and started experimenting. Our favorite rice so far is a "wild brown rice blend" bought in bulk from Whole Foods. I usually make 4 cups (8 when cooked), and add one can of chicken broth with the cooking water.
Summary: I eat brown rice, and was forever waiting for it to get done. I work, and now I mix together the ingredients, set it for what time I want it done, and when I get home from working out I have perfect rice, EVERYTIME!!! You can mix the ingredients together in the morning, or at lunch. One of the best appliances I ever bought. Never thought I really needed one till I got this one, but I'm hooked for life. Makes way better rice than I made on the stove.
Summary: Sanyo ECJ-D55S 5.5-Cup Micro-Computerized Rice Cooker/Steamer, White with Stainless Accent I wanted a rice cooker that would be easy to use, make a variety of grains and be affordable! After reading many, many reviews, I chose this rice cooker and I am very satisfied with my purchase. Many of the neuro fuzzy rice cookers were far too expensive--I mean, I am just cooking for one person--ME!
Summary: Growing up in a Cuban family, we ate rice every day, sometimes twice a day. We discovered the simple form of on/off rice cooker fairly early and I have used them for decades. They are easy, and nearly indestructible, but absolutely no match for this wonder machine. It can handle all kinds of rice: white, brown, and even sushi, all of it cooked exactly right.
Summary: We purchased the Sanyo rice cooker when it first came out because of the titanium rice pot. Having used it frequently we eventually wore it out, so to speak, therefore the need to purchase the newest model. Very happy with it. Have used it several times now and the rice does come out great each time.
Summary: We have used this cooker for about 4 weeks making rice 2-3 times a week. We have tried white, long and short grain, brown, wild, sushi and a mixed rice that have all turned out perfectly. The brown and wild rice take the longest to finish (about and hour) while the white, sushi, and short grain rice take the least (about 25 minutes). Rice stays warm automatically for up to 12 hours.
Summary: I've had mine for 2 months now and have only used it to cook white rice. In general, it takes about 40+ minutes to cook 2 cups of rice. I don't think there is much room for improvement as my previous Fujitsu digital rice cooks took even longer. The rice comes out just the way I wanted it (consistently). I also like the inner lid, which is easy to remove and clean. You'll still need to wipe the outer lid clean, but it is very easy to do.
