    I just measured my kettle with the basket installed. There is about 3 3/8 inches below the basket. The basket is held by its rim by an indentation near the TOP of the kettle. I have a 2 inch ferrule welded to the side of my kettle through which I install a 4500 watt wavy style water heater element. I also have a 1/2 inch ball valve and a temp probe port attached to the kettle.
    I have had mine for a couple of years now. I would not hesitate to recommend this kettle to anyone looking for a quality, inexpensive kettle for brewing.
