heat the pot back up when the pressure inside matches the pressure outside the lid will come right off. the air inside, although hot, has cooled and is creating a vaccuum inside the pot. cooling it is the opposite of what you should do. if you heat it back up you will not have to pry it open.

Are y'all serious?!?! do you really pry the lids off of pots in your kitchens?!?!


Let the pot cool... run it under cool water than use a butter knife to break the seal between the pot and the lid. You may need to run the knife around the rim.
I hate when that happens.


As yes, the lid stuck on the pot situation. Vaccum working I suspect. Caused by the change in temp, etc. put pan in freezer then run under hot water. Use a screwdriver to break the seal.

I would first try running hot water over the lid/pot, then cold.

Sounds like "suction". Liquid B'oiled away.
