Turning a non-ovenproof skillet into an ovenproof one

Can you really ovenproof a non-ovenproof skillet by wrapping the handle in aluminum foil?

This suggestion appears in several recipes on the Internet, but I can't find any good source to substantiate it. In my case, it is a heavy stainless steel skillet with a rubberized handle that is supposed safe in oven up to 400 degrees. I'd like to take it up to 450, but wasn't sure if the foil trick really worked.
