5. The main thing is to warm the lid rather than the glass, so the metal expands and grips less tightly


Metal does absorb heat faster than glass, but concentrating the application of heat/warmth more directly to the metal than the glass is more effective.

You can cool the jar in the fridge first. Then the differential in temperature gets bigger faster when the heat is applied.


If you have concerns about saving even small amounts of energy by conserving hot water, you can do things like pour the tea kettle excess water over the jar lid rather than down the sink.

Or use the water that is hot from washing up or washing face in the morning or getting ready for a shower.

Or put it upside down for a few seconds on a hot element or a few seconds longer on a warm element, as it is warming up or cooling down before or after cooking.
