How Can I Protect a Plastic Handled Pan in the Oven?

I have a good and seasoned frying pan (copper bottom), with a heavy plastic handle and I'd like to make fritatta in the oven! How can I protect the handle from the heat?
Thanks.

Wrap the handle with several thicknesses of aluminum foil.

Sounds like you have a good pan. Most handles are good to go into the oven up to 400.
Just make sure you have a pan handle cover when you bring it out of the oven. Habit to grab the handle could be painful!

Buy a different pan to use. Why ruin a good expensive pan you would be sick over.

We use the foil also. It works.

I've taken a screwdriver and removed the handle. There is usually a metal screw just under the handle against the pan. Easy to replace again.

Wouldn't u have to cover the handle on the shiny side & the dull looking out, i would think if u put the shiny side out it would soften the plastic??
