What is Control Mode (app assisted temperature control)?


Want precise temperature control without a guided recipe? Control mode lets you choose your own temperature, giving you the freedom to cook the way you want while still making use of the Cue's smart cooking technology. Give the control mode button a tap and give it a try. 

Temperature Control Mode

After going through the "connecting your Cue" steps, Control Mode will show you a temperature bar on your app screen.

  • Swipe the temperature bar to the left to raise and set your preferred target temperature. 
  • Swipe right to lower your preferred target temp. 
  • The Hestan Cue will take a few moments to reach your target temp. Once reached, Cue will maintain the target temperature until you decide to change it. 
  • At any point you can tap the Exit/Off button which will turn off active heat.
  • You can also set a timer by tapping the gray bar at the bottom of the screen. 

A Note about using Temperature Control Mode with the 5.5qt Chef's Pot

When using the Cue Chef's Pot in Control Mode, we recommend using "temperature mode" for sautéing and searing. This is because the temperature is measured at the base of the pot. For braises, soups, and other liquid-based cooking, we recommend switching to "power mode" as the temperature at the top of a pot full of liquid can vary considerably from the temperature at the bottom of the pot (where the sensor is). 


Power Control Mode
Tapping on the "Power" tab allows cooking using the in-app Power control bar.

  • Choosing a power level setting between Low and 10 will affect the temperature of your cookware accordingly.
  • Power applied will be continuous and the temperature will continue to rise indefinitely, similar to using a traditional fire-based cook range. 
  • A "current temp" reading is not available in Power Control Mode.
  • At any point you can tap the Exit/Off button which will turn off active heat.
  • You can also set a timer by tapping the gray bar at the bottom of the screen.
