Dish Stuck Inside Pot

Any advice on how to remove a dish that fell inside an aluminum pot? Would freezing or just cooling both cause them to shrink and separate?

Thanks

Mike

Try sitting the pot in hot water,whilst putting cold water in the dish inside.After a few minutes, the outside pot should have expanded enough to release it - tip upsidedown quickly!!

You could also try spreading some dishwashing liquid around the edge of the dish then turn it over and hopefully it will slide out.

I recommend ice in the dish inside the pot and a hot water bath on the outside surface. Heat expands and ice (cold) contracts. good luck

You don't say if the dish moves, try taking a butter knife and sliding it along the edge of the dish and the wall of the pot, it should let you get the knife down in side and flip the dish so you can grab it.

Try flipping the pot upside down for a while. Just make sure there is something soft for the dish to land on. If that doesn't work, try a heating pad over the pan, still turned over. Heat expands, cold shrinks.

Well just cool the dish that fell in and heat the aluminum pot that should separate them.
