This looks great and we are going to try it soon. Was wondering, the cook instructions only mention the bottom zone but there are items in the top zone. I noticed when setting the bottom zone to slow cook the top zone was automatically set the same. So I’m wondering when there are no instructions for the other zone does that mean to leave it as the same as the bottom zone? Or should I turn off the top zone and enough heat from the bottom will rise to cook the top zone?

Hi Tim, Suvie always applies the same cook settings to the top and bottom zone when Slow Cooking. Suvie never asks for the top zone setting when Slow Cooking because the time and temperature are predicated on whatever settings you use for the bottom zone. Suvie automatically sets the top zone once you input the settings for the bottom zone so you don’t have to input anything. Hope that clarifies the situation!
