According to Ashkenazim
# It’s forbidden to place a pot of fully cooked food on a blech even if one’s intent is just to remove it’s chill. <Ref> Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchata 1:25, Sh”t Igrot Moshe 1:94, Shabbat Kitchen (pg 44), 39 Melachos (vol 2 pg 564) </ref> However, it is permissible to place of fully cooked food on a blech on the area where it doesn’t reach 113 degrees. <Ref> Shabbat Kitchen pg 44, Igrot Moshe 1:94, however, Az Nidabru 8 forbids even in an area where the blech will not reach Yad Solet Bo. </ref> However, some say that it’s permissible to put foods on the blech on shabbat which could not be cooked on the blech (such as challah or kugel) as long as one doesn’t put it on the area which is over the fire. <ref> 39 Melachos (vol 2 pg 564) quoting Rav Shlomo Zalman </ref>
# One may move pots from a cooler area to a warmer position on the blech only if the food is fully cooked and the area from which it stood originally was 113 degrees. <Ref>Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchata 1:25 </ref>
# Some authorities hold that if the food was on on the Blech at the beginning of Shabbat, after candle lighting and Kabbalat Shabbat, one may return the food to the Blech on Shabbat if the food is fully cooked solid food.<ref> [ Halakhic positions of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, (Rabbi Zeigler, vol 4, pg 91)] </ref>
==According to Sephardim==
# According to Sephardim, it’s permissible to put a solid (completely) cooked food on top of a blech or hotplate on Shabbat. <ref>, Yalkut Yosef (Shabbat vol 3 pg 207) </ref>
