My work-around was to wedge a soup spoon firmly between the ridges of the lid and attached container, apply firm pressure while adding a twist and - - the lid popped off. My solution worked, and kept working well enough that I completely delayed what would be the logical next step - - a permanent solution. As in, buying and using easy-to-open ergonomic food containers. Nope, I put that off, until the day when my pressure on the spoon exceeded my reaction time. The result was coffee grounds scattered all over the counter top!
