Do you own one of those neat pyrex bowls that have a glass lid with a rubber vent? I bought one a few months ago and have loved using it. However, the other day I was re-heating some rice and the lid got sucked INTO the pyrex and got stuck! I’m not sure why this happened but I’m guessing I didn’t open the vent enough or maybe the lid was off center to begin with?! Whatever it was, I sure wasn’t expecting to find this when I opened the microwave door.
I really needed to use the rice for our lunch, so I went ahead and scraped it out and figured I would be able to dislodge the lid afterwards. Boy was I wrong! I tried gently pulling trying to ease the lid out. No such luck. I tried with a knife, thinking that if I wedged it between the lid and the container, I could somehow manage to get it out. Nope! I used all my strength up to the point when I thought I might break the lid, the bowl or both. But that darn lid is still stuck in the bowl, like this:
I have tried everything I can think of to get this lid out, but as you can see, nothing has worked. Before I throw out the pyrex I thought I would give it one last chance and ask you if have any thoughts on how to solve my problem? PLEASE if you have an idea of what I can do, send me a comment. I will try anything (within reason). I will let you know how it goes and hopefully post pictures of my pyrex without the lid permanently attached!
