How to wash the Panasonic Electric Thermo Pot

Today I decided to clean in the inner part of my electric thermo pot. The last time I cleaned it was two months ago. I will clean it regularly because I do not want to have any discolouration like dark brown patches in the inner part of the pot. I use about 80g citric acid to clean the inner pot. You can also use lemon juice. I bought my citric acid from this website- 100 g of citric acid cost me only $1.00. 80 g of citric acid is about seven tablespoon. Firstly I make sure that the mesh filter at the bottom is attached to the inner pot. Then I pour in 80 g or citric acid into the pot. Next, I add water until it reaches the maximum water level mark. Make sure you mix the citric acid and the water well. After that you close the lid and press the select cleaning button for about 3 seconds until you see the 98C lighted up. Depending on the model of the thermo pot, my thermo pot takes about 50 minutes to clean. Once the cleaning process ended, there will be a flashing light on the 98C. Once the flashing light appear, unplug the thermo pot and remove the lid. Then pour the water out via the ‚Äúdrain’ mark. Add water into it again until the maximum water level mark and then pour the water out. Repeat this process at least twice to remove the taste of citric acid or lemons. Now you will have a clean thermo pot.

    may I know what is the finishing of the inside of the pot? is it stainless steel or charcoal-claypot-like finishing?

    It’s not stainless steel, it’s some kind of charcoal-coloured synthetic material, a bit like a non-stick pan.
