The Culinaromancer's Chest is a special chest accessible to players during and after the Recipe for Disaster quest. It is located in Lumbridge Castle's cellar but is invisible until the player reaches the point in Recipe for Disaster where Gypsy Aris stops time, spawning multiple sub-quests. It has a bank, a food store that sells items for the Cooking skill, and a combat item store. The combat store sells metal gloves that act as armour and give offensive bonuses and Kitchen weaponry utensils, which act as analogues to increasingly powerful weapons.
As the player progresses through the quest, greater access to the chest is granted, with more items of food, better gloves, and more powerful utensils available for purchase.

There are limits on the number of each item, and those limits rise as the player completes more phases of the Recipe for Disaster quest. Many stock items are limited to 10 items with completion of the full quest, but some are limited to slightly less or much more.
Items purchased from the store respawn over time until their limit is reached. The respawn time seems to be one of each item per minute for most items. However, some are slower: pizza base and spice respawn once every 5 minutes, grapes once every 6 minutes, chocolate bars once every 6 minutes 51 seconds, and flour once every 20 minutes 33 seconds.

Metal gloves usable as armour can be bought from the chest. These gloves resemble the normal metal classes (bronze through dragon) plus Hardleather gloves and barrows gloves. The barrows gloves appear exactly like barrows equipment but do not have to be repaired like the gear. Higher tiered gloves will unlock as you progress through the quest.
Basic gloves are available after the first sub-quest is completed. The metal gloves are revealed one at a time as each member of the secret council is rescued. Finally, the Barrows gloves are unlocked by players who have fully completed the Recipe for Disaster final fight. The gloves bought from this store cannot be traded.
There is also a selection of kitchen weaponry, each of which have combat statistics equivalent from bronze to rune weapons. These are generally only used for show and jokes, but they are quite usable as weapons. Unlike the gloves, kitchen weaponry can be traded.
