Designed to add functional performance to your backcountry camp kitchen, the Alpha Pot is a strong and lightweight cook system ideal for solo or group use. Constructed from a hard anodized alloy, it is durable, abrasion-resistant and very easy-to-clean. We've incorporated some clever technology like the Pivot-Lock handle that securely locks into place during use and folds away when stored, a unique slotted strainer pattern for easy flow, and a silicone Lid Keep which hooks to the side of the pot when cooking. Delta Light dinnerware is compatible with Alpha Pots and nests inside to create a compact and comprehensive camp kitchen set.
- Patent-pending, Pivot-Lock handle with safety lock for secure and easy operation.
- Easy-flow strainer lid for efficient draining.
- Lightweight, hard anodized alloy.
- Large internal radius between base and sidewall makes the pot easy to clean.
- Graded volumetric scale on the side of the pot makes for easy measurement.
- Textured base for better stability on camp stoves.
Made of stainless steel with a silicone rubber grip, Pivot-Lock™ Handles are part of the superior engineering found in Sea to Summit’s range of Alpha Pots & Pans and Sigma Pots. In the pots, the handle rotates to secure the lid in place for transportation (no more lids rattling in your pack…) then swivels around to be secured in place with a one-hand operated thumb lock. This gives you the security to pick up even pots filled with hot food without the worry of the handle wobbling or becoming detached from the pot. In the pans, the handle swivels underneath the pan (away from the cooking surface), then swings back into place to be locked with an easy-to-use mechanism. You can flip pancakes to your heart’s content, knowing the handle will stay securely in place.

Frequently Asked questions
Can it be used over an open fire?
No, the cookware is not not designed for use over an open fire. The silicone-rubber handle and the polymer thumb latch could be damaged by the heat of a fire or contact with flames.
Can this cookware be used with a domestic stove?
Domestic stoves have a much higher output than backpacking stoves. If used with a home stove, the flame setting should be kept lower than with a normal domestic pot or pan.
Is it dishwasher-safe?
No. Alpha Cookware is made of anodized aluminum which would be damaged by the caustic cleanser used in dishwashers.
Can my Alpha Pot nest into larger Alpha Pots?
Smaller Alpha Pots are designed to nest with larger Alpha Pots, dependent upon the volume of each pot.
Can the cookware be used with an induction stove?
No. Induction stoves require pots made of a magnetic material.
