The problem with putting stuck head cement bottles in microwaves is that some head cement bottles come with metal caps.

For example, Wapsi Gloss Coat and some bottles of Umpqua Head Cement.

Metal should not go into a microwave because it can cause arcing. The results are unpredicatible.

Microwave and metal

Secondly, because nothing bad has happened does not mean nothing bad will ever happen. Putting a sealed container of volatile material that can expand and pressurize the sealed container beyond it's burst rating is risky. Maybe it will and maybe it won't but if other methods are safer, why do it? Hot water on the cap is safer.

Heating uncovered materials that cannot pressurize is like comparing lighting gunpowder in an open flame vs a pipe bomb.

The question was specifically about Hard as Hull brand cememt
It has a plastic cover
I checked before I originally suggested using a microwave

I didn't think that I needed to explain, but I'm not stupid about this and I don't expect that anyone here on NAFFF is either.
I'll microwave my head cement for around 3 seconds at a time until I feel that it's getting too hot. I just don't throw the bottle in and walk away.
If you're hesitant to try .... then don't.

The good news is......... Dave got the lid off and no one was hurt I don't believe anyone was wrong with their reply and I did like the 'Vaseline' tip
