How Do we Get This Spoon Out of the Jar?

Ok. We do not want to break the jar. If the spoon went in, it must come out. Has anyone got any ideas? I tried to upload a photo. That has not worked. I want to know how to remove a teaspoon wedged in a coffee jar.

A photo would help. I imagine you can empty the jar from its content, this is the first thing to do. Then try to pour a little olive oil in the jar shake and reverse. It should come out.

Can you bend the spoon slightly and then straighten it again once it's out of the jar?

I am not sure. The thing is, it could break the glass if I try to do that.

Hmmmm. Is it a metal spoon and a glass jar? Maybe you could stick it in the freezer for a while and the spoon might shrink just enough to release it. Failing that it might make a nice talking piece ornament for the 'coffee' table. A bit like the ship in a bottle.

Yes. It is a metal spoon in a glass jar. I like both your ideas and may try the freezer. I had not thought about the ship in a bottle.

@Jackalyn Good luck with the freezer method. Let me know how you get on. What about just emptying the coffee into another container and smashing the jar? Is the jar of some worth to you? I usually keep nails, screws, etc in my empty jars, but I have more than enough now, so would probably get the hammer out. A bit of newspaper around it to collect the mess and WHACK, job done.

Fill the jar with water and maybe it'll float out.
