Help! My KitchenAid mixer is stuck!

I made a cake literally hours before I went on vacation, and did not have time to take the beater out of the mixer and clean up...so it sat there for more than a week...in retaliation, the mixer refuses to let go of the beater! I can't get it out. Any suggestions?

That's gross!

Try this.

Put the bowl back on the mixer. Then put the beater down in the mixing position. Fill the bowl with boiling water. Cover the whole mixer with a towel to keep the steam in. Wait 10 to 15 minutes and try to remove the beater. The steam may loosen the dried batter.
