What cookware should be used with a Cue system?

Suitable cookware

Hestan Cue cookware is always required when using guided cooking functionality on the Hestan Cue app. Hestan Cue cookware is also recommended for any general, non-guided cooking on a Cue-enabled cooktop such as to make your own family recipes. That being said, it is possible to use most magnetic, flat-bottomed, induction-compatible cookware with the Hestan Cue Smart Induction Burner and other Cue-enabled induction cooktops. Cookware with at least an 18/0 stainless steel base is suitable for induction cooking. If in doubt, check with your cookware manufacturer to determine if the cookware you are using is suitable for an induction cooktop. Cookware must have a base diameter between 5" (12cm) and 10½" (26cm). 

If using cast iron cookware, read our FAQ about it:  Can I use Cast Iron cookware on Cue?


Cookware with base diameter below 5"(12cm) or more than 10½" (26cm)

Cookware without a flat bottom

Aluminum, hard-anodized, bronze or copper unless it is specified that they are compatible with induction cooktops
