Right- With the thermometer knob in view through the top opening, the Outback Oven fabric goes about 2-3 inches below the bottom of the pan supplied. Even with the heat diffuser and pan support in place, it is still too long for a box-type stove with full-width grill.
You could use a deeper pot, but to attach the thermometer there needs to be a hole in the center. Most nonstick pot sets have combo frypan lids that you'd not want to drill a hole in. Seems like I used the smaller-size Outback Oven with a black MSR cookset that had a lid with a center hole.
