Very stuck bread machine paddle

Morse | May 19, 201310:11 AM     15

I purchased a used bread machine and I don't think the previous owner ever popped it out; looking at it, there's actually tiny spots of rust on the edges, so I gather it was very well used(rest of the machine is spotless, just regular wear). I've tried soaking it, I've tried rubber pliers, the water jugs and string trick and the strongest friend I could find, and it's not budging.

My question now is, can I just leave the thing in there if I scald and scrub it after every loaf? I got the machine for ten dollars and it makes nice bread. I can't afford a new one. Thanks in advance. :)
