Pat of butter detail.png

A pat of butter is a food ingredient made with the Cooking skill. Players can make one by churning a bucket of milk, which gives 40.5 Cooking experience, or a pot of cream, which gives 22.5 Cooking experience, in a dairy churn.

A pat of butter is used by adding it to a baked potato to make a potato with butter. After adding the butter, players can then add additional toppings. Butter can also be combined with a pot of flour to produce biscuit dough, which can then be baked into biscuits, an ingredient for cheesecakes.

How to obtain butter[edit | edit source]

Purchasing Butter[edit | edit source]

Pats of butter can be bought in small quantities from the Culinaromancer's chest after starting the Recipe for Disaster quest. The stock is 10 and it respawns at a rate of 1 per minute.

Churning Butter[edit | edit source]

Butter can be made from buckets of milk or pots of cream using a dairy churn, and can also be obtained for free from dairy cows if you bring your own buckets. Churning is relatively slow, taking 151 seconds to convert 28 milk to butter.

Churning from milk turns one bucket of milk into an empty bucket and a pat of butter, so if you wish to retain the buckets then only 14 butter can be made in one trip. However when churning milk with a full inventory the empty buckets will fall to the ground, and a full load of butter can be obtained. Since the buckets are obtained for free from the milk sellers, their loss isn't a problem.

Milk can be bought from milk sellers which have a stock of 200 available. There are two milk sellers, one in Sinclair Mansion and one in Falador farm. 28 buckets of milk can be bought from the milk seller in the Sinclair Mansion garden, then use the churn a short distance north. Use the lodestone teleport to return to Seers' Village. A dairy cow is also available at Sinclair Mansion. Falador farm is faster with explorer's ring 3, which is also the only milk seller available in free-to-play. Cabbage port to farm, buy milk from milk seller to the northwest, enter through the door immediately to the south then use the churn in the west room. Teleport to any bank (e.g. War's Retreat Teleport or ring of duelling) to deposit the butter and repeat. Without teleports, banking at Clan Camp is closest. A dairy cow is also available at the farm.

Unlimited buckets of milk can also be obtained from the larder in Player-owned houses (however, this is individually taken and click intensive). After obtaining milk, teleport to any dairy churn to make butter, then any bank, then Teleport to house to repeat.

Yanille is a possible option with buckets in the bank. From the bank, milk cow north of Yanille by Watchtower, use short cut on the north-wall to go to the churn.

Zanaris (requires Lost City) is another option. General store south of bank sells buckets, but they take long to respawn. Go past the field east to the dairy cow and milk it, go north-west to churn it into butter.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The examine text calls the butter "freshly churned" regardless of whether or not it actually is.
  • On 10 March 2009, Jagex increased the price of butter in the Culinaromancer's chest from 4 coins to equal that of the current mid-price on the Grand Exchange. On 13 March 2009 this was 485 coins. This has since been reverted, with butter now costing 4 coins again.
