RISE & GRAINS

Before cooking, soak certain grains, such as wheat berries and pearl barley in four times their volume of lukewarm water for at least four (4) hours or overnight if required. Do not soak rice. Do not add salt to water, since it may toughen the grains and inhibit hydration. Rice and grains are best slightly undercooked if they are to be added to soups or casseroles. Oil or butter must be added to prevent foaming.

*Pear barleyy, oatmeal or other cereals can foam, froth, and sputter and can cog the pressure release device (steam vent). These foods should not be cooked in a pressure cooker Mueller ultrapot 6Q. 
*Cups referenced are with the included "rice measuring cup." 

Rice

Use this method for cooking long-grain or basmati rice. The texture will be more moist and slightly stickier than stovetop rice, more like rice from a rice cooker Mueller ultrapot 6Q or Asian restaurants. The butter or oil are to prevent foaming. Salt is optional to taste (you may wish to omit salt completely if using a purchased broth). 
White rice is cooked by selecting the RICE function and using Natural Release. 

DRIED BEANS AND OTHER LEGUMES

• Before cooking dried beans, pick over and discard any broken or shriveled beans or bits of dirt and debris. Rinse beans and drain. 
• Beans may be soaked overnight, but the pressure cooker Mueller ultrapot 6Q allows you to cook beans without presoaking. 
• Onions, garlic, celery, springs of fresh herbs or a bay leaf may be added for additional flavoring. Do not salt before cooking as salt inhibits cooking. 
• Never cook more than 2 cups of beans per batch (2 cups of beans + 8 cups of water + seasonings + onion, garlic, herbs to taste + 4 tsp oil). 
• Add 2 tsp oil per cup of beans to prevent foaming. 
• After cooking beans, clean lid, gasket, pressure limiting valve, and float valve carefully. 
• Use natural pressure release when cooking beans. 
• Cooking times may vary according to the quality of the beans or other legumes (this is partially dependent on the age of the dried beans, something you have no control over). If still hard after recommended cooking times, continue cooking uncovered. Add additional water, if necessary.
