yeah the 307 one - when I try unscrew it- it wont come off- it seems to be like those medicine caps that have the safety feature!

It wont come off no matter what I do with it

Finally - someone else with this problem!

I feel your pain - I had this just the other day! Drove me nuts - you'd unscrew it a certain amount then it would click back down like a safety cap. I suspect it is a safety feature that might have broken, to prevent you from unscrewing it when its red hot.

Either way, I couldnt work out how to get it off, so I used a knife under one edge of the cap and levered it up whilst unscrewing - this worked and didnt damage it. Sure there must be a better way but for the life of me I couldnt work it out.

Hope this helps!
