The Essence of Hestan: Culinary innovation born in the Napa Valley.


Founded by cookware icon Stanley Cheng, Hestan is a culinary brand made up of innovative chefs, vintners and engineers who are reinventing the way we cook.

From cookware to Cabernet, Hestan is built upon a shared love of food and wine accompanied by the excitement of innovation. Hestan founder Stanley Cheng pioneered hard-anodized cookware in the 1970s.

Since then, he’s reinvented commercial cooking equipment (you’ll find a custom Hestan range and French top in the redesigned French Laundry kitchen) and introduced a new level of culinary performance to the backyard with Hestan’s astounding gas grills.

Hestan’s thoughtful approach to technology and design doesn’t just lead to new cooking products – it leads to new ways to cook.
