I Personaly wouldn`t do it myself, with or without tin foil, it won`t make a jot of difference.

bakelite is a thermosetting plastic, and although once set it becomes altered in a way that heat won`t re-melt it, it WILL decompose and lose its nature over time with heating.
Brittleness and cracking is the most common effect (and a slight Ammonia smell too).
100-150c isn`t a problem in everyday use, above this over a duration and it`ll denature, and not in any visible way at 1`st.

Clearly it's time for a whole new set of oven-proof cookware.

actualy, another thing that may/maynot be noteworthy, is that unless what you call Bakelite is Extremely Old, it`s not actualy Bakelite at all, it`s something called Urea, it`s remarkably similar to bakelite in apearance though.
and it`s set in the same way too, except Microwaves are used to heat the puck up before the inserts and pressing takes place.
