Inventors and Entrepreneurs: We Need You!! Please Give Us:

We're told we live in a highly technological society. But then WHY hasn't someone invented dishware that holds heat for an hour? My simplistic answer to 'why' is that culinary inventions tread way behind others because it's predominantly the male sector that ultimately decides what needs inventing. I'm sure you have your own 'why' theories, but, beyond that........If you could get inventors to create them and entrepreneurs to make them available, cooking/consuming related gadgets and equipment that is, what would they be? (**We'll consider affordable, efficient, lightweight and easy-to-use as assumed qualities!**)

I wish for:
--Dishware that holds heat for an hour (china, porcelain; dishware like the variety found today)
--A citrus juicer that doesn't require the fruit to be held in place by (slippery) hands
-- A thin bladed and flexible rubber spatula that can be used with heat
-- Square sided 16 ou. plastic Salad Dressing containers w/ pouring spout
-- A small portable egg cooker for travel
-- A small portable toaster for travel
-- Plastic wrap that does not cling to itself until you tell it to
-- Large thin walled travel mugs that really hold heat or cold for many hours

How about you? What do you wish would be invented? I'm psyched to see your ideas!
