    It doesn't matter, as you'll have to watch it and check the water level anyway. Rice cookers sense "doneness" by sensing when the temperature starts to go above 212 degrees Fahrenheit, which will only happen when all the water is absorbed; any setting is going to keep the water at 212 degrees.

    ETA: Just checked my Beth Hensperger Rice Cooker Cookbook for the chapter on cooking beans in a rice cooker. She says to set it for the regular cycle. She also has a chart indicating how long different types of beans will take to cook in a rice cooker. You may want to look for this cookbook, it's wonderful and has 250 good recipes for all sorts of grains, beans, soups, and desserts cooked in rice cookers.
    Me, I'll stick with my pressure cooker for beans, 25 minutes for pintos, unsoaked!

    I second the cookbook recommendation - it's really helpful. Your library may carry it if you want to check it out, but it is also available in paperback now.
