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. :)

Magically Delicious!

This product is so magical! I have never cooked salmon before in my life and I made a crispy skin salmon and it turned out perfect! Not only am I making delicious food easily and without flaws, but I’m learning more about cooking along the way :)

Developer Response ,

You won't need to have so many lucky charms around you any more, in the hopes of making good food. Great results are all-but-guaranteed when using the Hestan Cue. Extra points if you memorize/learn things along the way too! :D

Almost perfect

There’s a wide variety of recipes and it’s very easy to navigate.

The one thing that could really take this app to eleven would be a way to save and access your favorite recipes.
