This article is about all the forms of burnt food. For when food stops burning, see Cooking/Burn level.

Burnt food is the result of a normal occurrence when training the Cooking skill. Burning food 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 requirement is decreased when a player is wearing cooking gauntlets.

Although selling burnt food yields 0gp from general stores, and is untradeable on the Grand Exchange, it can occasionally be sold to player collectors who may pay a lot more.
