Anodizing the aluminum brings the melting...

Anodizing the aluminum brings the melting point of pure aluminum, 658°C(1216°F) to approximately 2050°C(3722°F). Or so I have read. So I think it shouldn't have a problem in most fires.

It would take a pretty hot fire to melt this baby!

Hard anodizing is an electrolytic process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of the aluminum. Since this is only a surface treatment, I'd guess that the melting point is not changed. However, the melting point of the oven material may be higher or lower than that of raw aluminum, 1220 deg. F., due to addition of alloys.
