Bean cooking time depends on the bean - how large it is, mainly. Chickpeas and large limas cook a lot longer than navies. How long depends on whether or not you soak them. With the pc, you can speedsoak them in a few minutes, as opposed to the overnight soaking you do otherwise. I'm kind of swamped and don't have time to type in the whole chart, but if you let me know which beans you're cooking, I can tell you how long to cook them.

I haven't tried cooking soybeans. Ironically, though I live in a large county where most of the cropland is in soybeans, none of the groceries around here sell them. But I've cooked chickpeas, which often come out grainy with regular cooking and the pc makes them so creamy and smooth that they've become one of my favorite beans.
