Cooking is a skill that allows raw food to be made edible, healing hitpoints when eaten. To do this, the player uses a raw, cookable food on a range or fire.

Depending on the player's Cooking level, food will sometimes burn, becoming unusable. There is no way to prevent your character from burning fish but a higher cooking level helps prevent it.

Cooking goes hand-in-hand with the Fishing skill as the player can cook the fish they obtain. If no range is nearby, having an axe and tinderbox on hand can allow the player to cut down a tree and make a fire to cook the fish on.

By levelling Cooking, the player is able to cook better foods such as Sharks, Rocktail, and Dark Crabs.

Methods & Experience

Note: You will need approximately 20% additional raw fish due to the possibility of burning the fish. This 1-99 guide assumes no burning.

Training Tips

Location of Range

The best place to train cooking for new players is in the Skilling Center. You can teleport there by typing ::skilling in the game chat. Alternatively, there is a teleport option located in the House Options in the Settings tab.

Once you are in the Skilling Center run north until you reach the bank booths. The range is in the building attached to the bank. You can stand in the red spot to bank through the wall for more efficient exp/hr.

For even faster cooking: build a fancy cooking range in your POH and hire a butler. The bank will then be accessible directly next to a range.
