I had same problem, but after fiddling with the top for a while, after it had gone cold, some slight movement occurred, and I was able to gently unscrew - I've also greased the thread - I think there seems to be a grub screw which might need tightening. good luck

SOURCE: Steam buggy water reservoir cap
You need to completely annihilate the plastic cap by cutting it off and destroying the remaining plastic to expose the stainless steel insert/plug. You can use either a pipe wrench or 11mm wrench to turn the insert counter-clockwise to unscrew. You will need to use some force to get the plug out since it's basically glued shut by lime deposits in your tap water.
Do not move the slotted cap or else this will need to be adjusted so that all your water doesn't squirt out before turning to steam.
Next time only use distilled water. Store with the cap off. Grease the inner and outer threads after every use and wipe it off completely before use so it doesn't mix with the steam and turn to vapor.
