Insulating Force 10

My older boat is going on the hard for 4 months of re-fit and repairs. I have already purchased the Force 10 two propane 2 burner stove/oven. Going through older comments in this forum, a common complaint is the belief that Force 10's don't have sufficient insulation.

So I was thinking since I am ripping out the old cabinet, all of it, where the stove is located, can I not just add insulation to the sides and back of the stove to create better performance. It really doesn't matter if the the new cabinet is one inch further out beyound the bulkhead.

Secondly, will this affect performance, improve it, or is insulating a waste of time? I figure the cost is next to nothing.
