Default Will steamer pots fit a heating element?

As you all know, the hot water heating element must be installed in the pot, but will the steamer indentation interfere with installation, or are they usually high enough up to not be a problem?

32qt stock pot in question.

I have this guy: Amazon

I have an element installed in it. The locknut on the inside butts up against the indentation so it can't spin (makes screwing the element in easier since I don't need to hold both the nut and the element).

I drilled the hole smack in the vertical middle of the lower flat area. I could have moved it down a touch possibly. I figured the middle was the best bet because the bottom curvature and the above indentation.

What I'm not sure of is that if the indentation is lower in smaller pots (or different brands).
