As a company, Hestan is built upon a shared love of food and innovation. We believe the kitchen is a place of collaboration and celebration. This is evident in the name “Hestan” itself – a blend of founders Helen and Stanley Cheng’s names. For it was their passion for exceptional food and wine that brought together the extended Hestan family of chefs, vintners, designers and engineers. After pioneering nonstick cookware in the 1970s, Stanley Cheng’s inventive spirit led him to the commercial kitchen. Then Hestan changed the game for outdoor cooking. And now, the home kitchen. Above all, Helen, Stanley and the Hestan team delight in the details of cooking – celebrating and elevating every nuance of the culinary experience.
