I purchased a new rice maker for $7.00 (great deal!) and when I took it out of the box it did not have a holster for the scoop unlike the last one I had. I was a bit disappointed. :( I was not going to make a trip back to the store and return it over a silly holster.
Because the plastic is so smooth be sure to scuff and score the plastic where the Sugru will be making contact with the plastic. I scraped the plastic with a small screwdriver going up and down then side to side.
Be sure to clean the surface of all dust and any kitchen dirt like grease before applying the Sugru.
