What is cooking?

Cooking is a skill that allows you to use raw food to be made edible, healing hitpoints when eaten. To do this, the player must use a raw, cookable food on a range or fire. Cooking goes hand in hand with the Fishing skill.

Cooking places

There are a few cooking locations near to a bank. Remember you can't use the bank as an ultimate ironman.








Members Zones


Run to the north east in both zones to reach the cooking range.



Cooking guild


You need level 32 cooking to get access to the guild, and make sure to wear chef's hat or a cooking related item.


You will find the cooking range north of Edgeville's bank. To get to Edgeville, just use the command ::home.


Cooking master

The cooking master can be found at the cooking guild. He's able to give you skilling tasks to obtain cooking points or money (you will also get participation points when you finish your task). In addition, he can give you the skilling cape when you reached level 99 cooking. Finally you can view his shop where you can spend your cooking points.
