I had the same thing happen to me just last night after grating some parmesan. what ended up happening is that i put too much stress on it and one of the little catches on the side of the bowl welded itself to the lid. not enough to be permanently stuck, but enough to make it impossible to open.

i found that if i wedged a flathead screw driver underneath the side that was melted together, i was able to separate the two welded pieces, and then open the lid right as normal.

hope this helps.

otherwise, you'll have to go to gourmetdepot.com and order a new bowl and lid (30 bucks each)

I am also having the same problem. it happened as soon as i got done putting in some parmesan and grated it. never happened before and i've got a few cups of parmesan cheese just sorta wasting away inside the processor. very tempted to break the damn thing open and just buy a new processor from a different company.

Something I saw on Chowhound worked for me--turn the lid in the back-on direction, then twist it off!

Lid stuck on work bowl of kitchen aid processor


This tip is used to remove a stuck bowl from the base of a Kitchen Aid tilt-head mixer. It might work for your situation. Fill the bowl with very hot water (use the food shoot as a pour spout). Now use either frozen gel packs, or a bag of ice cubes, and lay the ice on top of the lid. Wait for a few minutes. The hot water with make bowl expand, ice will make lid shrink, thus loosening the tight lid. I'm assuming that the lid edge fits inside of the bowl, like most food processors do. Try to gently move the lid, and see if it'll give.

The locking happens at the handle. You need to turn the lid counter clockwise to take it off and clockwise to lock it into position.

Lid is stuck in wrong direction will not come off


I got the lid off by using a turkey-skewer (i.e., a long pin) to push down on the long white plastic piece, in the handle, just above the spring.
When you push it down far enough, you can twist the cover back over to the proper side.
(We think we created this situation ourselves by mistakenly twisting the cover into place clockwise, rather than counter-clockwise.)

Possibly the micro switch which is activated when the lid is turned into position. Sometimes a particle of food gets lodged in the opening and prevents the lid from engaging the switch.
Or maybe the wires in the plug have come loose.

You just have to force it out, there is no magic. Sit down, put the lid between your knees and thump it out with the handle end of a hammer.

I can't figure out how to use it.. I just want to make a smoothie!


You can get a manual at WWW. euro-pro.com.

In order to use the blender the food processor bowl and lid must be LOCKED in place. Turn the lid on processor until it's locked. Then you are ready to use the blender. Select desired speed or pulse.

In order to use the processor, remove the blender and place the gray lid in its place. It should be locked. The lid keeps the blender shaft from spinning and allows the shaft on the processor to turn.

To remove the processor bowl, gently lift up on the lid to unlock it and then turn it away from processor. Bowl lifts off. That's it! Enjoy!

Hope I have been of some help to you.
