A connected cooking experience - Hestan Cue is a video-guided cooking system that automatically controls temperature and time, every step of every recipe. Our smart cookware, induction burner (sold here and recipe app all communicate with each other using Bluetooth® technology and embedded sensors — automatically adjusting the cooking temperature and time as you proceed through each recipe. Hestan Cue is your coach in the kitchen, walking you through each recipe step with video guidance. Try new dishes. Learn new skills. Elevate your cooking without fear of overcooking or underwhelming. Cue doesn’t cook for you – It helps you cook better food, more often.

Hestan Cue is the most dynamic cookbook ever written. The recipes within our app are created by world renowned chefs. From the best grilled cheese on Earth to black bass with dill and caviar emulsion, Cue walks you through each step with video guidance. So even if you’ve never julienned an apple, you’ll see exactly what to do. And we’re continually updating with new recipes to elevate your cooking - step by step, dish by dish.

Hestan Cue automatically controls the vital variables: time and temperature. As you proceed through the recipe, Cue dials in the optimum cooking temperature for each step. From porterhouse to duck breast, just tell Cue how well done you like any particular cut, and it automatically adjusts to your preference - so you can always count on that just-right sear and doneness.

Cue also gives you creative control to cook meals around the ingredients you have on hand. Select a main ingredient and pair it with the sauce of your choice. Keep it simple or make it special.

What temperature is “med-high”? Or “high”? With Cue, you get the exact temperature you need at that exact moment. Crispy salmon skin is best seared at 435 degrees. Cue eliminates the guesswork through each step of every recipe. Take your skills to the next level and cook up your own creations with Cue’s freestyle mode where you can manually set and maintain specific temperatures using the app.

Hestan Smart Cooking is inspired by the kitchen of the future - and those who want to cook in it. We continue developing and devising new tech-enabled products to take us there. But we’re also obsessed with making the right tool for the job, not just using technology for technology's sake. When we combine science and culinary craftsmanship thoughtfully, it makes the art of cooking more enjoyable. Our goal is to help you cook better and inspire you to cook more often.

Beautifully choreographed videos amazing recipes!

I bought the Cue several months ago, and unfortunately have not used it much as our lives have been super busy, however...the ease in use, how to videos as you are cooking, the cues to add ingredients, to stir, simmer, turn and sear are helpful! And the ingredients in most recipes are not difficult to find. Every meal I’ve made with the Cue so far has been delicious. Also a fan of sous vide cooking so am happy to see recipes incorporating this method, and even works together with the joule! Awesome!!

One suggestion/request: Can you add a bookmark/favorites option to the app for each recipe, so we can easily find the recipes we want to make?

I hope you find a little more time in your schedule to Cue up some good food, but it's great knowing the times you've used it had nice results!
The "bookmark" feature you mentioned is one of the more frequently requested additions. I'm happy to report that planning has already started for inclusion in a future release of the app. :)

High Quality Cookware

The cookware was worth the money. High quality pan made of stainless steel. You can use metal utensils without scratching it. Unfortunately, you can’t use it in the dishwasher. There are countless recipes in the app and they have all come out perfectly. I have had some connectivity issues and discovered some app bugs, but the customer support has always been very helpful and gets me back cooking ASAP. I would recommend this product to anyone who likes cooking and making delicious meals.

We're always happy to help if there's any problem!
We've heard feedback about the generation 1 pans (not being dishwasher safe, etc) and have recently released generation 2 which are! I think your Cue experience will be even better with the new version cookware. :)

No better than the tasty one top

Seriously! The app is slow to respond to touch commands and randomly skips over steps for no apparent reason. I bought this because of the integration with thermomix. Received today and made scallops. Everything worked great until it came time to flip the scallops. At that point the app completely skipped over the second side cooking step. Had to cancel out of the app and fast forward through the recipe to get back to that step. Second try sort of worked but even then the cooking time for the slip side auto advanced to the next step before the cooking time had finished. Why is there no “back” button on this app? Thermomix has this basic feature. This isn’t version one of the app and I can’t believe I am the only one disappointed in this bad user experience design.
