Can I use aluminum covered baking pan to bake recipes calling for 500 degree oven?

June 8, 2010 - 1:37pm -- ginnyj

I picked up at a garage sale, a  large aluminum, baking pan and lid with the label "Household Institute" on the bottom.  I see it's an oldie but a goodie.  Would it be ok to use for the recipes that call for putting the pan in a 450+ degree oven to preheat and then placing the bread in the pan?

I don't have anything else that would work, expect possibly a covered pyrex bowl, and do not want to buy something new for $50+++ dollars.  I don't do a lot of bread baking.
