Can I put this pot in the oven?

GGG | Mar 29, 200506:21 PM     4

I've heard that any pot that doesn't have wood or plastic handles can be put in the oven. Is this true? I don't have a dutch oven, but I do have this thin (as in, kinda flimsy-feeling) white enamel pot with "pasta" written on the side. It's all made of the same material, and I figure if the bottom can handle fire, the rest of it should be able to handle a 325 oven. But it doesn't say anything on it about being oven-proof. Is there a general assumption that pots are oven-proof but for their handles? Should I put this pot in the oven?
