I got my love of cooking from my mom. She always let me and my siblings help in the kitchen. It was so much fun learning everything from the basics to her tricks for making a meal come together. As I got older, we would share recipes and pour over cookbooks to find new dishes to create.

In addition to my love of cooking and cookbooks, I also am endlessly fascinated by kitchen gadgets. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve designed my dream kitchen in my head.  I’m always interested in trying out the latest and greatest cookware. When I was asked if I wanted to take the new Hestan Cue, a tool designed to help me cook like a pro, for a test run I jumped at the chance.

Hestan Cue System

Let’s face it, we’ve all had the dreaded kitchen nightmare experience. You decide to try out a new recipe only to have turn into a disaster. Sometimes it because we get distracted and our food gets overcooked. Other times it’s because setting our oven or stovetop to the exact temperature isn’t always possible. What is medium high? And how do you really know if your oven is cooking at 350°?  Enter the technologically smart Hestan Cue, Induction Burner and Smart Cookware.

The Hestan Cue system is designed to take the guesswork out of cooking. Instead of trying to figure out how to get the perfect sear or knowing when your food is cooked to medium or medium rare, the system does it for you. How does it accomplish this? Through Bluetooth enabled devices combined with your Bluetooth enabled phone or tablet. You simply download the Hestan Cue app to your device and then sync it up with their Smart Induction Burner and Fry Pan or Chef’s Pot.

Syncing my Hestan Cue

Not only does the app help you become a master chef, but it also offers up a variety of recipe choices. You can choose by cuisine, season, mood, main ingredient, dietary restriction, meal/course, or getting started.

After reading through the included booklets and syncing up my Hestan Cue System, I was ready to try out some of the recipes created by Michelin-starred chefs. I was in the mood for Italian and decided to make Turkey Meatballs and Spaghetti. To accompany this, I choose the Bruschetta Toast and Tomato Basil Sauce from the app. I was especially excited to make the sauce because I’ve always wanted to make my own from scratch.

Hestan Cue Recipes - Bruschetta Toast and Tomato Basil Sauce

 

I choose my serving size and then gathered all my ingredients as listed in the recipe. Next, I clicked Get Started and was taken to a new screen which provided the details for the next step. There was also an instructional video to guide me if I needed it. I have mixed feelings about this feature. It’s great if you are a new cook, but a little distracting if you already know how to say chop garlic. Overall, I do think it can be a benefit, especially if you come to a step that asks you do something you’ve never tried.

 

Making Tomato Basil Sauce

One of my favorite features of the app is how it automatically tells the burner to heat up and adjusts the temperature as you cook. I also really love the built-in timer. It means I don’t have to worry about setting my own timer, which I occasionally forget to do. Having the built-in recipe timer also means whatever I cooking in my Hestan Cue won’t overcook while I preparing the rest of my meal.

 

Making Bruschetta Toast

 

Best of all, the videos and pictures allow me to see what my recipe should look like as I’m cooking it. I’ve always hated cookbooks without pictures. There are times when I need to see what the final outcome should look like.

With the Hestan Cue, I knew exactly what to expect. My Tomato Basil Sauce came out perfectly. It had just the right amount of flavor and spice for my turkey meatballs. The Bruschetta had just the right mix of crisp and chewiness I like in my bread. Both made Italian night a success and so much fun. I can’t wait to give more Hestan Cue recipes a try. Maybe Asian or Fall inspired or perhaps I’ll opt for my favorite meal, Brunch.
