Some beans splatter in the cooker and clog the jiggle-top vent.

Here is a technique I use to stop the clogging:
After putting the beans and water in the pot, gently set a bunch
of cut up greens on top of the beans and water. I use enough
greens to create about a 1 inch cover over the beans and water.
The greens stay on top during cooking and keep the bean splatter
from going up into the vent. I have no problem with limas, lentils,
or split peas using this method.

This is a good way to get more greens into your diet. Beans and
(any) greens also make a great taste combination. And you can
buy and use the cheaper jiggle-tops without using oil to cook
your beans!
