About this app

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 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.

VIDEO-GUIDED RECIPES
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.

COOK WITH CONFIDENCE
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.

MIX & MATCH
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.

PRECISION TEMPERATURE CONTROL
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.

COOKING UP THE FUTURE
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.

Well designed, intuitive, and valuable. The concept of learning how to cook while being integrated with the tools is evolutionary. However, I was disappointed at the thin offerings of vegan dishes. The starch, vegetable, and legume menus are riddled with animal products. The is a filter to display animal-free recipes, which at times sneaks in the butter. I have hope the team will expand the vegan offerings to an otherwise extraordinary experience.

"Setup" user interface needs a little update. Spent about half an hour trying to add my Cafe appliance. Kept trying to tap the add other device not knowing you could scroll down for different options. Thought tapping other device would create a drop-down. Finally scrolled down by accident and it set up fine after that.

I found it fairly easy to pair my phone with my cookware and induction burner. There are a good variety of recipes, and I have found the recipes that I've cooked so far to be quite good. Once I've selected the recipe and started to cook, I find that the process works quite well. I especially appreciate the videos accompanying each step which really help to clarify what is intended to be done. However, there are a few shortcomings that I think could be easily addressed which would make the app significantly better: 1. Searching for recipes can sometimes be a chore. In particular, I wish that you could filter recipes by the equipment you have. It allows you to filter by the smart cookware/probe, but you have to do this every time you search. I wish that you could set it to filter by some default set of cookware, perhaps which ones you have paired with the app. I also wish you could similarly filter for Thermomix and sous vide recipes. It would also be helpful to be able to filter by ingredients, or at least certain key ingredients. 2. The recipes use almost exclusively volumetric measurements for ingredients. I think at least putting an equivalent weight of ingredients (grams and/or ounces) would be helpful. Many ingredients are easier to measure out by weight (like sugar and flour) and purchases of many ingredients are made in units of weight rather than volume (such as cheeses). 3. While I like the general idea of mix and match recipes pairing a protein with appropriate sauces, the execution of this leaves much to be desired. First, you are not able to filter by the equipment you have. In addition it would be very helpful to be able to open up the individual recipes in order to see the ingredients, cooking time, equipment etc. However, this pretty basic functionality is currently lacking. 4. I wish that there was some way to rate/review recipes to better be able to identify some of the more exceptional recipes. I think at least being able to rate based on things like easy of use, the actual amount of time it required to make the recipe, the quality of the final product etc would be helpful. It would also make it easier to provide feedback for recipes that might help the recipe development team to tweak recipes to improve them. 5. It would be nice to have some way to make custom recipes. I have many recipes that I like to make that I think would be easily adapted to the Hestan Cue and would benefit from the sort of streamlining that a guided recipe allows. While it would be helpful just to have my own custom recipes, the additional ability to share recipes with others would also be helpful and have the potential to significantly increase the range of recipe options. I am hopeful that the developers will respond to feedback and work to improve the app because I really enjoy cooking with my Hestan Cue.
