|Examine||A big wheel of delicious cheese. / A wheel of cheese with a bit missing.|
A Cheese wheel is created by churning pats of butter or buckets of milk. A Cooking level of 48 is required. It replaced cheese that was made instead before the update. The same amount of experience is received as making cheese but the wheels are untradeable unless sliced.
Slicing cheese results in 4 experience per slice and one can obtain a random number of cheeses (5 or over) from one wheel. The higher the player's Cooking level, the greater the number of cheese they will get. A person with 99 Cooking may get over 30 cheese from a single cheese wheel. According to the combat stats interface, each cheese wheel weighs 0.3kg.
Each piece of cheese it creates heals 20 life points, so in theory each cheese wheel could heal between 100-600 life points depending on your cooking level. So, in theory, an inventory with the maximum amount of cheese that can be held and cut (27 cheese wheels, a knife in your toolbelt, and an open inventory space to hold the cheese) could give you 810 pieces of cheese and heal 16,200 life points, making it possible to be very useful for money-making or training combat. It should, however, be noted that, even at level 99 Cooking, obtaining 30 cheeses from one wheel is very rare; based on the limited sample below, an average of 695 per 27-wheel inventory at level 99 would be more accurate. A cheese wheel is an excellent addition to your Temple Trekking inventory, in case of the Campsite event.
When cutting cheese wheels, it is recommended you have the following inventory:
- 2-4 cheese wheels (The amount will vary on your Cooking level because you will obtain more cheese if you have a higher level.)
- Right-click the wheel and select Slice-all.
- Always stand near a bank to deposit your cheese, and to withdraw more cheese wheels.
Using Cheese Wheels to Make Money
The best place to make money using cheese wheels is Zanaris.
- Obtain Buckets of milk from the cow east of Puro-Puro.
- Churn into cheese wheels at Zanaris mill.
- Bank and repeat.
Wearing weight reducing equipment is recommended to maintain a 'run' the whole process. After the desired amount of cheese wheels are obtained, begin to cut them using the recommended inventory above. Since each wheel has an average of about 9 slices each, and the Grand Exchange Price for a piece of cheese is 87 coins each, each wheel is worth approximately 783 coins. Cheese is also in high demand, so it sells almost immediately.
- Before the cheese wheels was introduced, players who churned milk produced cheese instead.
