BRK Alpha Pot, 9.5 inch, 4.25Q
Begin your precision cooking now with a quality BRK Alpha pot today! The durable German design and brushed stainless steel finish of this cookware result in exceptional quality that we think you'll find is an outstanding addition to your kitchen.
An alloy heat-conducting disk sealed into the stainless steel base of every pot spreads heat uniformly—no hot or cold spots on the bottom of the pan. BRK cookware works on all cooktops: gas, electric, ceramic, induction, and halogen.
A stainless/glass lid comes with every Alpha pot. With the lid’s glass center you can easily monitor your food as it cooks, without lifting the lid each time.
Turn your quality cookware into a multi-purpose cooking system! In Europe, BRK is the leading brand in pressure cookers and you can quickly turn the Alpha pot into a useful pressure cooker by ordering the pot with both the glass and pressure lid, or if you prefer, you can purchase the separatelypressure lid. BRK manufactures their pressure lids and lid components in Germany; pots are made to exacting BRK specifications, in Asia.
The Alpha Pot has a 4.2 quart (4-liter) capacity.
“Pleasant Hill Grain is a top notch company. You process orders quickly without error and also resolve returns to the customer's satisfaction. Other companies I've ordered from online don't measure up to Pleasant Hill Grain!”

By Ingrid K. in CO on 11/2/2015 - Verified BuyerWow! Unlike many people who are afraid of using pressure cookers, I grew up in a home where my mother used hers several times a week. I've used two sizes of German pressure cookers for over thirty years, mine being quieter than Mom's. I'm now making stock again and was linked to Pleasant Hill by a site that touts the merits of using a pressure cooker vs. stove top or crock pot (poor outcome).
Older now and without as strong a grip in my hands, I was immediately attracted to the unique "one hand release" locking mechanism. Also love the very easy to read measuring lines inside the pot. I bought the largest BRK cooker and couldn't' be happier. Shipping was prompt and extremely well packaged. Kudos!

By Janet K. in HI on 10/7/2016 - Verified BuyerI knew the BRK cooker was a quality product, but was amazed at what a beautiful a cooking instrument this is. I love the ease of putting the lid on, too. I've tried rice, beans, meat, quinoa, and even made beautiful yogurt. This truly is the best pressure cooker ever!11 out of 11 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Richard R. in TX on 6/15/2015 - Verified BuyerFirst time (and hopefully last!) time I've purchased a pressure cooker. After some reading I called Pleasant Hill Grain and asked questions regarding the BRK and one other. The sales lady was very knowledgeable and helpful. I decided on the BRK and bought the 9 liter size. I'd recommend nothing smaller. Better to have the capacity than not! I've used it twice so far. It's easy to use, the lid is a breeze to put on and take off. No regrets .Thank you all.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Ronnie A. in FL on 2/9/2016 - Verified BuyerThe pressure cooker is made of high quality stainless steel and has lots of safety features to make it easy to use. You can set the BRK and forget it until it's ready to turn off. Lots of room to cook anything you want. It's become one of my favorite cooking pieces and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality pressure cooker.7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Robert N. in TX on 1/7/2016 - Verified BuyerI had bought my wife several other brand of pressure cookers and were not pleased with the quality. I decided to try the BRK even though it was more expensive. We're very pleased with the quality and craftsmanship of the BRK Alpha pressure cooker. Everything appears to be well made and engineered. We look forward to using it for a long time.7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Traci L. in IA on 2/4/2018 - Verified BuyerIt is heavy and built to last. I have never used a pressure cooker before and was raised on stories of my grandmother's pot exploding. Nonetheless I took the plunge and bought this stove top model. I am so glad I did. The redundant safety features make me feel safe. It took no time at all to make bone broth. Buy this and you won't regret it.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Deborah D. in MN on 7/12/2016 - Verified BuyerThis is my second type of pressure cooker. The BRK is easier to use and more efficient. Best pressure cooker ever!3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Catherine in NY on 8/4/2016 - Verified BuyerAfter trying out several other brands including Kuhn Rikon and WMF, this is my favorite because it doesn't have long handles,, and the ease of pressure buildup as well as ability to select pressure level. Also, I bought the steamer and roaster and am very happy I did.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Barbara L. in CO on 12/23/2018 - Verified BuyerI already own two BRK pressure cookers. I also own a few Kuhn Rikon PCs. I love the BRK because of the one hand operation. So much easier. I bought this last one when one son moved out. He wanted one to take with him so he could cook for himself and his brother. He cooks veggies almost every dinner. This size is also great for cooking artichokes and corn on the cob.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
