Cooking is a skill in RuneScape Classic that allows players to cook raw food. It is considered to be a production skill, because the player is producing cooked food from raw meats.


Cooking allows players to cook raw food into cooked food. First, a player needs a raw food item and a fire or range to cook on. Raw food can be obtained from the fishing skill as well as remains dropped from various monsters. There is a slight possibility that players can burn the food, in which it becomes useless to eat. It should also be noted that ranges have less of a chance of burning food, and the Lumbridge Castle range has even less of a chance of burning food which can be used by the player after completion of the Cook's Assistant quest. Additionally, the higher a player's Cooking level is, the lower of a chance there is of burning food.

Various food items are able to heal different amounts. Some can heal a little amount, while others can heal a player by a large amount (up to 21 hits). Generally, the higher the cooking level required to cook an item, the more it heals.


Different types of food can be made with the cooking skill:

Sardine Fish
Pie Pies
Plain Pizza Pizzas
Tasty Ugthanki Kebab ... and others

Additionally, there are several different kinds of gnomish recipes which are possible for the player to make:

Fruit blast Cocktails
Batta Battas
Tangled toads legs Bowls
Crunchies Crunchies

For more information, see the food and gnome cooking articles.
