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

Burnt swordfish detail

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.
