Been there, and encountered that situation before!

What kind of glue did they use?

It *might* be possible to get the broken bit of shaft out of the knob,  using 
the point of a scriber,  which I've had some success doing in the past,  once 
you get the glue out of the way.  If it's some type of glue that's soaked the 
whole way down in,  then you're not going to have much luck with that.

Last time I encountered this was with a Tapco mixer,  I think.  :-)
