Cooking gauntlets are a pair of members-only gloves, available after completing the Family Crest quest. They are made by having Caleb enchant a pair of Family gauntlets. While wearing the gauntlets, the player will have a reduced risk of burning select types of fish.
The cooking gauntlets can be obtained by right-clicking chaos or smelting gauntlets and choosing "Switch." The player can then select the cooking enchanted version from a menu. Switching enchanted gauntlets in this manner will cost 25,000 coins. Players are able to obtain one of each type of gauntlet by speaking to the respective brother and paying them 1,000,000 coins after speaking first with Dimintheis in order to unlock the appropriate dialogue option.
Cooking gauntlets give the same 1% experience bonus as sous chef's mitts if the player owns the mitts (it will add the 1% set bonus if the rest of the Sous chef's outfit is worn). Cooking cape's perk is similar and prevents the burning of all food, but cannot give the experience bonus.
If the gauntlets are destroyed or lost due to death, they may be re-obtained free of charge from Dimintheis in south-east Varrock and will retain the previous enchantment.
"No-burn level" in the table below refers to the Cooking level at which it will no longer be possible to burn the item on a range.
This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
- patch 21 October 2019 (Update):
- Swapping between the different enchantments for the gauntlets awarded from the "Family crest" quest, can no longer cause the game to crash.
- Previously if a user was to destroy the Sous chef outfit and was to also have the cooking gauntlets in their backpack, the cooking gauntlets would be destroyed as well. This has now been fixed.
