I have a plate stuck in a bowl. Wall and bottom of bowl are in a 90 degree angle. How can I remove the plate?

I have tried suction with a vacuum, toilet bowl plunger (dont tell any of my guests), hitting the bowl on the bottom, tried to hook the plate with a bend needle I put between wall and plate with no success.

I thought about filling the bowl with water to the plate level and putting it into the freezer, hoping that the ice would lift the plate up. I am not sure though if this could break either the bowl or the plate.

    Try emptying the bowl of all water, then immerse the bowl in hot water, up to and above the plate level, after a minute or so turn it upside down over a towel or cushion, a sharp knock on the bottom of the bowl MAY dislodge the plate, (if the bowl has expanded enough??!!) Dont let heat get to the plate or it will also expand into the space, and jam tighter. You could even put some ice on the plate to keep it from expanding.

    Try spraying some Pam on it. Non stick spray.

    That is the only thing I can think of.

    You really have a problem, I think you might try spraying pam on the sides of the bowl letting it run down inside good, then heat the bowl by immersing it in hot water, don’t let the water go over the edge. Let it stand a few minutes and try that plunger again. Hope this helps! Good luck!
