How to remove pizza stone stuck to oven rack? [moved from Home Cooking]

I have a pizza stone that for some reason became stuck, stuck, stuck to the oven rack. I cannot think of any way to remove. Any suggestions of how to do so are welcome.

  1. Have you tried reheating the oven (and the stone) and lifting it off of the rack when it's hot?

    1. You could also try taking some dental floss and running it in between your oven rack and the pizza stone to detach it [when the oven is COOL]. Good luck and let us know how it went.

        dental floss would break immediatly. try a cheese wire

          Oh wait, a cheese wire might break too. Better get a hack saw blade! /s

        2. i'm a virtual gawker on this one ... i cannot imagine this happening. I think the low reheat suggestion is a good one - at this point, what is there to lose. i will be interested to read how you solved this. otherwise, does your appliance repair person have a spare rack for you?

          1. The only way I can imagine this happening is if the stone was placed on a rack with food residue on it or if something dripped from the stone and ended up between it and the rack....

            So my thought is it must be food residue, most likely high in sugar or fat. Therefore Todao's suggestion of reheating seems the best method.
