If you use the spanner you have to adjust the height of the hooks,you can detach the whole end bit. It will leave the turning round bit in place, but you can swap them over using that.

It will stay like that for over a year, and one day, it will magically come away, as if it were never stuck. Not that I'm bitter or anything.

Mine does this sometimes. I just pour boiling water on it and wiggle it (technical)

Pour boiling water in the bowl to steam it?

What madasa says. One day it will just come out!! Try telling it that it will be going in the bin if it doesn't.......worked when my bowl got stuck!!

boiling water yup.

best way to do it - get a muslin cloth and tie it round the free arm and the top of the hook. pour boiling water ove itso the loth absorbs the water.
leave it for a bit.
try again.to remove hook.
