To deactivate the Flexi Cook function, press simultaneously the 2 selecting buttons of the zones. To switch off the zones instantly, hold one of the zone selection button for 3 seconds. EN The Flexi Cook function is also able to detect when a pot is moved from one zone to the other one within the Flexi Cook area keeping the same power level of the zone where the pan originally was placed (see the example in the figure below: if the pot is moved from the front heater to the rear heater, the power level will be shown on the display corresponding to the zone where the pot is placed). It is also possible to operate the Flexi Cook area as two independent cooking zones, using the corresponding button of the single zone. Place the pot in the center of the single zone and adjust the power level with the slide touch screen. IMPORTANT: make sure to place the pans centered on the cooking zone in the way to cover the center of the single cooking zone. In case of big pot, oval, rectangular and elongated pans make sure to place the pans centered on the cooking zone. Examples of good pot placement and bad pot placement: IMPORTANT: The message “no pot” ( ) will appear on the display of the zone that is not able to detect any pot (because of missing pot, or misplaced or not suitable for induction hob). This message remains active for 60 seconds: in this time you can add or slide pots within the Flexi Cook area as you prefer. After 60 seconds if no pan is placed on the zone, the system stops “searching” pots on that zone, the symbol ( ) remains visible on the display to remind that the zone is disabled. To reactivate the Flexi Cook function, press one of the 2 buttons .
