Use Flex Duo in your Samsung wall oven or range

Two single wall ovens opened with food inside

Cooking two completely different recipes with the same oven is no longer a challenge. Flex Duo (aka Twin mode) on your wall oven or range lets you use different settings for the upper and lower compartments, such as different cooking modes, cooking times, and temperatures just by inserting the oven divider. Now, you can make two delicious dishes in half the time.

Use Flex Duo on a wall oven

When you want to use Flex Duo or Twin mode on your wall oven, it's a matter of inserting the divider, selecting your preferred compartment and cooking mode, and then placing in your food. That's it!

To use Flex Duo, first insert the Smart Divider into the wall oven. Touch either FLEX UPPER or FLEX LOWER to select the compartment you want to use. Next, turn the Mode knob to the desired cooking operation and then set the desired temperature. To begin cooking, touch START.

The two compartments will have different temperatures and settings when Twin mode is being used. Please check your user manual for more details and information.

Use Flex Duo on a range

Many Flex Duo Samsung ranges have a unique door that is hinged in the middle. When using Twin mode, this hinged door makes it easy to access the top compartment while leaving the bottom compartment closed, which is convenient when cooking with two different temperatures.

Note: Some ranges with Twin mode do not have a Flex Duo door, but work the same except for the door.

  1. Insert the Smart Divider into the oven and push in until the range beeps. When the Smart Divider is properly inserted, the “-” icon will appear on the oven's display.

  2. Select a cooking mode, and let the oven preheat. The two compartments will have different temperatures and settings when Twin mode is being used. Please check your user manual for more details and information.

  3. When the oven is hot enough, you can place your food items inside. Accessing and opening the compartments is different depending on which one you want to use.

    • Access only the upper compartment: Hold the handle and the lever at the top of the door. Press the lever to release the door latch, and then pull the handle.

    • Access the full oven: Hold the leverless area of the handle, and then pull. This will open the whole door.

      Caution: When opening the whole door, make sure to grasp the handle by the leverless portion. If you press the lever halfway through opening the whole door, the upper door may open, causing physical injury.
