    There's no dough in there - I used that to make bread lol It's just I can't untwist the bowl off the base to clean it! It's stuck and won't budge no matter how I twist and try to leverage against something else. It's not coming lose.

    It's not been on my list of priorities for the last couple of weeks to be honest, and it saved me from cleaning around it haha
    I've googled it and apparently it's good to pour hot water into the bowl - that'll make it easier to unscrew it.

    OK , I'd assumed that because you'd made a double batch of dough, it had overflowed!
    What about a hairdryer to soften the plastic bowl?

    IGNORE that ^^^ we cross posted!

    It's a metal bowl I'm gonna go try the hot water after the news. So same idea.

    It's probably five or six years old now. But my mum had a very similar one to the one you linked on fleabay, but that had a metal bowl too!

    Hot water in the bowl, and a little spray or two of WD40 at the bottom of the bowl finally did the trick! And it unscrews anti-clockwise, for future reference lol
