Tamale steamer as a water bath for canning?

It is a large aluminum stock pot that has an insert about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom that has holes in it. I was thinking of putting the jars on top of that insert so that they dont touch the bottom of the pot. Then filling with water 1-2 inches over the jars. Will this work so I do not have to buy anything?
