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.

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.

So far I've been browsing recipes and cooked one dish, but annoyances so far: - recipe videos autoplay - there appears to be no video player controls (rewind, skip ahead, enable captions, etc) other than pause - the "favorite" button routinely doesn't seem to work (the heart fills in briefly and then unfills) - I need to choose "pan" for each recipe - while cooking, looking at the full list of steps and then switching back overlays the two screens

Haven't used the app yet but can't get it downloaded to my tablet because I put it in my phone first. Now all it recognizes is my phone and won't let me install on anything else. So I deleted it from my phone but it's still showing the phone and won't allow to download to anything else. I had read this was a problem but hoped they had fixed it. Beware...be sure what you want it on before you download.

"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.
