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 home kitchen. Our collective of chefs, engineers, vintners and designers delights in the details of cooking – celebrating and elevating every detail of the culinary experience. The Hestan team spent years working with – and listening to – acclaimed chefs.  Then they reinvented the restaurant kitchen with thoughtful innovation built around the way chefs really cook.  That same spirit of culinary innovation has now defined the luxury kitchen and outdoor cooking with unparalleled performance.
