    Or stand pressure cooker in a basin of hot water to expand it and put ice in the bowl to contract it. Leave to stand then tip upside down on the lawn or similar.

    Rub some vegetable oil on stuck surfaces, attach a plumbers helper to the bowl, and then pull like hell while holding the pressure cooker with your feet. Actually, you should not have to pull too hard.
