Scratches on your Zojirushi rice cooker non-stick cooking bowl?

I just got a Zojirushi NP-GD05 last week and already seem to have marks on the inside surface of the cooking bowl. It is not like they are deep gouges and I when I run my fingers over them it is hard to actually feel anything.

I am taking care to wash it with a sponge as opposed to a scouring pad. The only thing I can think of is that as I wash my rice (gently), the actual rice grains are marking the cooking bowl. However I thought the non-stick coating was supposed to be really hard wearing.

  1. It appears there are some scratches, right? But not deep enough to reveal the silver color aluminum, right? It is normal. Don't worry about it.
