 This is the regular Cooking guide, the guide for ironman / hardcore ironman players can be found here.

Cooking is an artisan skill that allows a player to cook raw food into food that you can eat to heal lost Hitpoints. Cooking goes hand in hand with the Fishing skill. By levelling up Cooking you are able to cook higher level food which will heal more Hitpoints.

Cooking is very straight forward. The only thing you need to do is use a food on a range. The only problem with cooking is that it is very slow paced as you get little experience compared to other skills.

Note: When you reach level 99, xp will get reduced by half.

All though Karambwans give more experience than all other food, they can only be fished in the wilderness which makes acquiring them very difficult.

Where to Cook

Cooking can only be done on Cooking Ranges, there are only three Cooking Ranges that are close enough to a bank to be worth using here at Etherum.

These Cooking Ranges are located at:


One is located in Catherby, which is the furthest from the bank out of the 3 suggested. However, is close to the teleport.


Donator Zone

Another range is located in the Donator Zone (only available for in-game donators). This is much closer to the bank than Catherby and other players are often nearby which could help pass time if you want to converse with them.


Cooking Guild

The best area to train Cooking is located south west of the Grand Exchange, this is the Cooking Guild. It is incredibly close to the bank.

Cooking Gauntlets vs. Brawling Gloves (Cooking)

When you have both the Cooking Gauntlets and the Brawling Gloves (Cooking), it is tough to decide which one you should be using, as they both have useful benefits.

If you are going purely for fast experience, Brawling Gloves (Cooking) would be a better option. Even though you will be burning fish, the bonus experience you get from the Brawling Gloves is more than enough make up for this loss.

However, if you just want a nice supply of food. You'll be better off using Cooking Gauntlets.

The Skill Cape

If you reach level 99 in Cooking, you can talk to the Wise Old Man at home to obtain the Skill cape. He is located at home, in the building north of the bank.

The skillcape costs 30 million coins and comes with a matching hood. Both the Cooking cape and hood give +9 bonus to all defense stats.

If you reach 200m experience in the Cooking skill you will also unlock the ability to buy the Master Cooking Cape. It is exactly the same as the normal Skill cape. However, you can adjust the trim colour to whatever you like. This master skillcape costs 80 million coins.
