Another way to get the bucket lid off easier is to cut slits around the perimeter of the lid. In many lids there are pre-molded lines that a knife will easily slice through which will make getting off the lid much easier. Just don't go beyond the pre-molded lines are you could compromise the seal of the lid.

Nice job jacking this thread. I'll continue it...
there is a "tool" you can purchase at any Homebrew supply store that will help you take the lid off your bucket.
you can find an example here
It is the gold thing above "buckets"
Oh, what a great little tool. . . see, ask and ye shall receive the knowlege, and it was good.
