How to remove Kenwood chef bowl

I can't make bread dough in the Kenwood Chef bowl if my husband is not in to remove the bowl for me. Has anyone got any tips? I don't want to put oil or butter along the base on the outside in case it unlocks it while kneading. I can remove it with no problem if I am doing eg a cake mix but dough, particularly for a 2lb loaf, is impossible for me.

I have to say, I have never had a problem.

How long are you kneading the dough for? The recommendation is 3 minutes maximum on Slow. I just wondered if long kneading is making the bowl become too tight.

Otherwise, brace the machine against something solid and think STRONG as you turn it. Do not be tempted to apply anything greasy, like butter or oil.

I've had this problem at times. I do what Welshcookie suggests, wedge against something and wrench!! It always releases it. Never had to rely on a very strong man yet!

Thanks to you both and apologies for not replying sooner - I had forgotten to ask for email notifications of replies so had thought there were none.
I have the Premier KMC560 model and have been using the recipe for basic white bread in the recipe book that comes with it. It says to knead until soft dough stage and then 1 minute at minimum and 4 minutes at speed 1. I have been doing exactly that as I am trying to get used to making bread in the Chef as until recently I was doing it in a breadmaker. I will try placing the machine against something solid as you both suggest although that might need some major kitchen organisation.
