Insulating things is good right? stop all that heat moving
about and creating mischief where it's not wanted. Now,
oven gloves and tea towels and things are tedious. Simply
buy the new double-walled vacuum insulated oven ware. It
works like this... the super-hot family-size lasagna will not
be able to conduct it's magma-like temperatures to your
hands, allowing you to safely and conveniently remove it
from the oven.
This, of course, is lies. The double walled insulation will
allow the outside to heat up... but no cooking will take
place on the inside, leading to a double whammy of burnt
hands and raw food. This is the reward awaiting anyone
stupid enough to buy it.
Off-label uses of the dishes for serving already-hot and
cooked food will be brutally discouraged that's more this

||Of course, it would be very useful if one were to heat it up with the lid off, then put it on. The dish will continue to cook for some time, while the oven can be switched off to save energy - or used to cook something else.
||OTOH, it would be better still to massively insulate the oven.
||well, Vacuum panels exist for super-cold freezers. So
simply re-bake the same tech for an oven.
