It's a great machine, but the blade is stuck to the pan.

The cleaning instructions with it (Sanyo) say not to soak water in then pan for that long, and certainly don't use abrasiveness; makes sense it's a non-stick coating. It also says not to use vinegar to clean it. I tried pulling it out with a set of pliers with cloth around them, also tried soaking 45 minutes or so, but the blade seems quite stuck. I noticed scrape marks around the paddle/blade as well, suggesting the previous owner was having trouble getting it off as well.
