If you’re a lone adventurer in need of a lightweight cooking set, then the Alpha Set 1.1 from Sea to Summit is the strong and durable choice.
This set contains a 350ml Deltalite InsulMug and an 800ml Deltalight bowl which nest inside a 1.2L Alpha pot. The mug and bowl are made from microwave safe, BPA free polypropylene making them easy to clean and take care of. The pot is constructed from a premium high spec hard anodised premium alloy, making it strong, durable and light. The secure pivot-lock handle provides grip and can also be rotated inwards to lock the lid and contents for storage.
It’s easy to drain your food as the pot has a strainer, and the bottom is sandblasted for stability on top of a stove. And the Lid Keep feature means you can hook the lid onto the rim which will free up your hands. A lightweight set for solo travels, the Alpha Set 1.1 from Sea to Summit is ready for the trail.
I love this design for cooking slower meals- we made packet pasta that was simmered for 10 minutes, it was easy to stir because it is a wider diameter than many cooking pots, this also made it easy to move the food around.
This is really stable on our 360 furno burner, and we also find the pouring hole super handy- it makes pouring boiled water into a cup really easy.
We actually use this as a lightweight option for 2 people hiking, since the saucepan is much smaller than the 2 person kit. One of us eats out of the bowl, and the other eats straight out of the saucepan. (note, its not big enough to cook two main-meal sized portions, but we usually cook and eat one main meal, share it, then cook another afterwards. Better variety that way!)
- This style of handle is much nicer to use than the 'butterfly' style handles on other cooking pots, I find it much more stable when pouring.
- Great pouring spout.
- Wider pot means easier to stir food
- It is difficult to clean around the rivets.
- Need to pay attention to fold the handle the correct way- the pot can be wrenched out of round reasonably easily.
- Cup lid has a strong plastic smell while you are drinking.
All in all very happy with it, even for the price ;)
Another great piece of kit from S2S. Great weight/dimensions. Great sized bowl & cup. Perfect fit in my pack (even for day hikes). Love It!
