Can't get the top off my new cocktail shaker!

Cheesy Oysters | Aug 21, 200709:54 AM     61

I'm not sure if this is the right board, but I need a little help. Just bought a new Caphalon martini shaker in a stainless metal. It was pricier that most but I liked the way it looked and I like their other stuff. Well after one martini or other drink, you can't get the bloody top off. I took one back and got another that had a slightly looser top, but still can't take it off until it warms up--which takes quite a long time since there is ice inside.

Previously we had the kind that uses a strainer. Are the ones with metal tops impossible? Any other ideas or brands?
