The hooded cooking cape is a Cape of Accomplishment for the Cooking skill with a cooking hood attached. It's made by using the cooking hood on the cooking cape, which can be reversed with the right-click "Detach" option. It requires level 99 Cooking to wear.This cape can also be used to enter the Cooks' Guild instead of a Varrock armour 3 or a Chef's hat.

The cape is considered one of the easiest Capes of Accomplishment to get due to its simplicity and fast experience rate. In cases of high level players, it is possible to get up to 400,000 experience per hour. This has led to the belief that it is a "catalyst" 99. Such 99s are skills that are trained after a harder 99 has been achieved and the player wishes to easily trim their cape without much effort.

The cape has an emote, lasting 14 seconds, during which the player makes a meat pie. It is the longest level 99 cape emote in the game. The Cooking cape must be equipped in order to perform the emote.

Should a player achieve skill mastery in a second skill after Cooking, the hooded cooking cape will turn into a Hooded cooking cape (t), which is the trimmed version of the original cape. The Cooking cape (t) has a red trim.

Talking to Head chef gives an option to toggle the appearance of the cape to a retro version, overriding the normal appearance and making it look similar to how it did before the 2015 graphical update. Despite it not being a new item, the retro cape can be used with a keepsake key.

Perk[edit | edit source]

The Hooded cooking cape's perk prevents all food from burning while cooking, making it superior to the cooking gauntlets.

Up to three perks of the capes of accomplishment can be added to the max cape, the completionist cape, and the trimmed completionist cape and up to two perks of the capes of accomplishment of a specific skill type can be added to the respective expert cape of accomplishment. This can be done by using a cape of accomplishment with the desired perk on one of the capes. The cape of accomplishment is then lost in the process. To make space for other perks, it is possible to later remove the added perks, but with no reimbursement. All of the added perks are shared among max cape, completionist cape, and trimmed completionist cape, thus it is not possible to have different configurations of perks on the different capes.
