A metal pot lid was set on top of the ceramic cook top. Moisture was on the lid and it is stuck to the cook top. It will not move at all. How do I remove it without damaging the cook top? Should I turn...

In case anyone else encounters this problem here's what
worked for me. I had this happen last night and came here
searching for answers. It did not unloosen on it's own
after being left overnight. Finally this morning I came up
with something that worked for me. Shoot the lid all
around with a hairdryer and use a towel to keep seeing if
it has loosened up enough to move. After a few miuntes of
spraying it with the heat it stared sliding around and then
came up.
