Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

The cover does just unscrew by twisting it counter clockwise, but unfortunately the glass will sometimes get stuck in place due to the high temperatures in the oven and the metal screw in base expanding and contracting. The best way I've found to unscrew the glass cover is to put something rubber between my channel locks and the glass and then grab the glass with the channel locks and turn counter-clockwise. Sometimes it's hard to get a good angle, but this has never failed me.
