guess it depends on your coil diameter vs kettle diameter, mine fits just fine, thermometer sticks into the kettle about 2", and is pretty sturdy. I normally do bump into it when putting in the chiller but no real problem getting past it. And I love having it in there while immersion chilling. Much easier than messing with a floating thermometer while stirring the wort.
