I don't know if this will work but you might try a hot soak with whatever beans you cook. Simply bring to a boil 3-4 quarts of water & add beans. By using a large pot more heat can be retained vs. a smaller one. Allow to boil a couple of minutes before covering and turning off the heat. Let sit for an hour or more. Thoroughly rinse beans and put into fresh boiling water & cook. If you try this I'd like to hear if it works for non pc cooking.

Also, pc's are great tools. I can't imagine cooking without one. Along with shorter cooking times, I think that pressured cooked foods taste better than foods cooked in standard pots. You may want to consider getting one.

One final point in favor of pressure cooking is that less energy is used. In my opinion this means that cooking with a pressure cooker is more environmentally friendly than cooking with regular pots & pans.
