Bowl Stuck Inside Glass Pot

I was warming up some food in a large bowl by putting water in a glass pot and putting the plastic bow on top. Now the bowl is stuck inside my glass pot and I can't remove it. There is still a small amount of water in the pot but the bowl is embedded.

I had something similar happen with 2 pyrex baking dishes. I tried the hot/cold water method to no avail. Finally, on a whim, I sprayed both dishes with WD-40 and they slid apart like a charm.

Hot water expands fibres in certain materials. You need to shrink them instead. Try popping it in the fridge for a while or fill with icy cold water, and try separating them again.

Yes this helped me. What I did is I kept the jammed pans in the freezer overnight and next morning held just the outside surface of outer pan to hot tap water, guess what in few seconds it separated like a charm... Hope it helps

This has happened to me unfortunately breaking my grandma's nice glass pie dish. I had gotten a plate stuck in in somehow when I was doing dishes. You should try putting it in the fridge to make it cold and they should pop apart. I wish I would have known. Good luck.

Sometimes having a change in temp will cause one or the other item to expand at a greater rate than the other and it will release. If cold dosen't do it try running hot water on the glass. The glass should expand from the heat and release the plastic.

I have two medal pots stuck and cannot get them apart. Tried putting them in the freezer - did not work. Tried oil between both - did not work. Really good pots - what else can I do?
