Help! My No Knock cups isn’t working, it is sticking to the surface!
Your cup will not lift if you try to pick it up at an angle or quickly, these features help stop those accidental spills. By picking up gently and vertically you’ll find your cup works fine.
Sometimes it still may not want to move. Don’t worry though, you can simply slide it off the edge of the surface or leave for a few minutes before trying again. You can also tilt the cup at an angle and put your thumb on the silicone disc, push gently to break the surface seal.
To reduce the risk of sticking you should also check that your Clevergrip base is completely dry and the surface you are putting the cup onto is dry.
