There are various types of food you can cook in RuneScape. By eating food, you regain lost Life Points. The amount depends on the type of food you eat. As you train your cooking, you will be able to cook more varieties of food, and you will also burn less.
To cook food you can use ranges which can be found throughout RuneScape, including your own house kitchen. You can also make fires or use existing fireplaces, on which you can cook most types of food.
To cook meat, chicken or fish, simply use the raw item on a fire or Range.
Note: You can deliberately burn things if needed. After you cook them, you can cook them again to see the message “You deliberately burn the nicely cooked meat.” No experience is gained for burning meat deliberately.
The table below will show you the foods you can cook, the level requirements to cook them, and how much each food heals.

Additional miscellaneous info: if you burn a pizza, you get a “rebate” boost of an additional 74 xp for the next two pizzas you make (180 xp for each of next two pizzas versus regular 143 xp, which is 37 xp additional for each pizza). This “rebate” does not seem to occur on anything else.
Meat and anchovy pizza xp shown is just for adding topping to an existing cooked pizza. Chocolate cake xp is just for adding chocolate to existing cake.
The experience given for potatoes includes making all the toppings. So to get the full experience from, say, a tuna potato, you would have to cook the tuna, cook the sweetcorn, make the topping, bake the potato, and then place the topping on the potato.

Levels Required to Not Burn Fish
|Type of Food||Cooking Fire/Range||Cooking gauntlets||Cook-o-matic
|Cooked slimy eel||58||–||–|
Within the dungeons of Daemonheim there are several fish based foods used to heal yourself. Below you will find a list of the fish themselves as well as the various potatoes that can be made. When cooking food in Dungeoneering, be aware that the higher the tier Wood used, the lower your chances are to burn the food being cooked. This applies both to fires made on the floor as well as within a range; cooking on a range increases your odds of not burning your food. And while fish can be cooked on either type of fire, potatoes can only be made on a range.
Remember to always right-click when creating food as many of the items are edible.
