  • Try sliding a knife or something like that under the lid. It probably won't take much, just a little to break the vacuum that's been created.

  • Cover the lid and the side with a towel. Carefully slide a knife under the lid. This will break the seal.

  • if its really stuck and even the knife wont do the trick. You could heat it up a little and see if its easier to release that way my friend and had a big pot with the same thing and that was the only thing that worked we heat the pot as much we could tolerate to touch it(with oven mittens) and then pull

  • Put the pot and lid in warm water and soak-unless there is food in it. It will loosen up and come apart

  • Try sliding a butter knife under the edge.
