I have 2 pots stuck together. I tried the warming the bottom solution but it does not want to unstuck. If anyone has successfully loosened the pots please let me know. Thanks

    Set outside pot in hot water and put ice water in smaller pot at same time. should work quick. Just pick up by inner pot and bottom one should drop

    This should work. You may have to give the pots a quick twist in opposite directions.

    If that doesn't work try a little veggie oil applied with a brush. Give a gentle twist. Good luck.

    wd40 all around the pot inside, then store upside down with something to catch the oil that drips. in time, you will hear it fall.

    I would do as Linda Creates suggested! Boiling water on outside to expand and cold water with ice to make smaller! GOOD LUCK!

    5 minutes in the freezer with both my pots did the trick. No hot water and no ice. Just put both stuck pots in the freezer.

    I would try WD 40. Using the straw attachment on the nozzle, carefully spray along the rim of the bottom pan. Let it sit for a bit while the lubricant seeps down between the pans. Then fill the stuck pan with ice. Start wiggling the stuck pan, adding more WD-40 if necessary. Make sure the outer pan stays warm, maybe heating it with a blow dryer.

    Hello, you can put them in the freezer, then try to twist and wiggle them apart
