As a company, Hestan is built upon a shared love of food and innovation. After pioneering nonstick cookware in the 1970s, Hestan founder Stanley Cheng’s inventive spirit led him to the commercial kitchen. Then the Hestan team changed the game for outdoor cooking. And now the Hestan Indoor line brings the precision and quality performance of the award-winning commercial appliance line right into your home, recently winning a TWICE VIP award for the Pro Style Bottom Mount Refrigerator.
Hestan offers a full line of ultra-premium products that includes premium ranges, rangetops, cooktops, ventilation, wall ovens, warming drawers, dishwashers, built-in refrigeration and wine storage. The products are available in 12 exclusive color finishes.
Hestan NanoBond cookware with molecular titanium cooking surfaces delivers both exceptional resilience and gleaming brilliance. Not only is NanoBond 400% harder than stainless, it’s 100% toxin free, and also achieves 35% greater heat conductivity than other aluminum-clad stainless steel cookware.
In addition to cookware, the Hestan Cue Smart Cooking System is a guided cooking system marrying science, technology and culinary craftsmanship. The connected pan, induction burner and recipe app act as a coach in the kitchen, guiding users through each phase of the cooking process, helping to ensure a perfectly finished dish every time. The smart cooking technology is also available on the Hestan smart induction cooktop.
