Incorporating the Hestan Cue 5.5qt Chef's Pot as part of your complete Hestan Cue Smart Cooking System allows for a range of cooking techniques not available with other cookware. The following is a list of cooking techniques available with the pot when using guided cooking recipes via the Hestan Cue app. 


  • Braising
  • Slow Cooking
  • Steaming
  • Frying
  • Soups / Stews
  • Tableside Cooking
  • Candy Making
  • Sautéing
  • Poaching
  • Custards


Note: 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).
