Please help us remove a plastic ( rather thin) plate stuck in a same size DIAMETER metal pan, as it was inadvertently placed in the pan and now was pushed in tight and we cannot seem to get a thin piece of metal through enough to dislodge a side to pull and remove it from the SAID metal pan Approximately two quart PAN ANY IDEAS?

    If you can't remove it, break the plate to save the pan. A hammer should work.

    Try this: Put the pan in a container of hot water. Just enough to go about 3/4 of the way up the sides. Fill the plastic plate with Ice cubes. The heat should make the pan expand. The cold should should make the plate contract.
    Good luck.

    You could try putting them in the freezer. The cold should shrink the metal pan. Good Luck!

    Heat/cold.....just like when stacked glasses are stuck. Or suction cups on the plate, then slowly turn the plate as pulling up, spin the plate out.

    Maybe heat them in a low oven....should make the plastic soft enough to bend a bit to pull it out. Hot water may be enough heat, if it's hot enough.
