Heats up the seal around the lens. Makes it alot easier to open. Also I have tried with a heat gun and I found it to be not as efficient. Your heating one area at a time. Once you try to open it the other side has already cooled down. Baking in the oven will provide an even heating, therefore a nice easy split.
