Cooking is fun. Eating what you cook when you don’t really know what you’re doing? Not so much. The Hestan Cue Smart Induction Burner wants to solve that by guiding you through the cooking process every step of the way.
No, the burner itself won’t be talking to you like a kitchen-adept version of Alexa. Instead, it pairs with a companion app over Bluetooth, playing step-by-step video instructions of what you need to do after you choose a recipe, so you can simply play monkey-see-monkey-do and get better results. Well, fingers crossed, anyway.
Unless other precision stovetops, the Hestan Cue Smart Induction Burner doesn’t require you to manually adjust heat when it’s connected to the app. Instead, it will control the heat all on its own – all you have to worry about is pouring the oil, turning the meat, and all the other stuff that goes into cooking the dinner. Do note, you’ll also need to use the outfit’s smart cookware during cooking (they have pots, pans, and all the basic stuff), since it comes with embedded temperature sensors that the app uses to ensure everything cooks with absolute precision.
Features include a bundled frying pan (with built-in temperature sensor and replaceable AAA battery), a bundled ruler (so you can measure the exact thickness of meats), a 1600-watt cooktop, and capacitive buttons for those times you’re cooking manually. It measures 12.5 x 2.5 inches (diameter x height).
Available now, the Hestan Cue Smart Induction Burner is priced at $549.95.
