Burnt food is the product of burning raw or cooked food. Most burnt foods are grey in colour. Nearly all burnt foods are tradeable. All burnt food is stackable, except for turkey and turkey drumsticks.
Obtaining burnt foodEdit
Burning food is a normal occurrence when training cooking. Burning can happen when the player's cooking level is not much higher than the level requirement to cook the food. It can also occur if a player cooks food that is already cooked when the burnt food is required for a quest. When cooking, using a range rather than an open fire will decrease the chances of burning it. Most food has a certain cooking level at which it will become impossible to burn. This level is decreased when a player is wearing Cooking gauntlets. Imps are known to drop burnt bread and burnt meat.
Types of burnt foodEdit
- Ruined chompy and Snake over-cooked are the only types of burnt food not prefixed with 'burnt'.
- Before Tutorial Island was removed, a player had to cook shrimp during the tutorial. However, they would always burn it on their first try.
- After a hidden update, an "eat" option was added to burnt food. However, when the player clicks on the option, they will not eat it and instead say "Ugh, this is inedible." This option was not added to burnt slimy eels, rainbow fish or turkey.
- Burnt food items can be sold to general stores for 1 coin each. Many players also buy and collect burnt food.
- Burnt lobsters used to be a popular scamming item. A player would claim that it was a "rare" black lobster and sell it for a high price.
- Prior to an update, burnt food was able to be sold in the Grand Exchange.
- Prior to an update, outside of Daemonheim, potatoes would always burn on a fire.
- Previously, burnt food did not stack in a player's inventory and had to be dropped one-by-one. Burnt turkey and drumsticks are an exception to this and do not stack.
- Most burnt food items have an examine text of "Oops!". Exceptions to this include:
- Bread: "Nice crispy bread. Possibly too crispy."
- Cake: "Argh, what a mess!"
- Cave eel: "It's no longer slimy, or edible."
- Chicken and turkey: "Oh dear, it's totally burnt!"
- Minnow and crayfish: "A burnt minnow/crayfish."
- Monkfish: "Maybe a little less heat next time."
- Pies: "I think I left it on the stove too long."
- Pork pie: "A waste of pastry and pork."
- Rainbow fish: "Used to be a colourful fish, but now it's burnt!"
- Slimy eel: "It looks like it's seen one too many fires."
- Snail: "A slightly super-saute'ed snail."
- Spider on shaft: "A badly burnt spider threaded onto a charred arrow shaft."
