REVIEW: Sea to Summit Alpha Pot Set 2.2

Lightweight integrated cookset reviewed for UKHillwalking.com

I reviewed the Sea to Summit Alpha Pot Set 2.2 for UKHillwalking.com.
From the review:

The handles are… a bit weird. Sea To Summit call it the PIVOT-LOCK and it takes a little getting used to. The silicon-insulated handle rotates out from the side and then locks in place with a small catch. When stowed the handle keeps the lid firmly on the pan preventing any rattling, and does secure well when properly ‘deployed’. However it isn’t that intuitive – I tried handing it to several friends and colleagues who all took a few moments to work out how to open the handle – and the catch mechanism can be a bit fiddly. I have been told that my ape-like sensibilities might have something to do with that…

The lids have a row of strainer holes at one edge and a single hole at the opposite, and an insulated rubberised grab handle that mates with the pivoting handle when packed away. There’s also a clever little flap on the underside that allows you to lodge it on the side of the pan when stirring.
