Location of the Culinaromancer's chest in the Lumbridge Castle cellar.

The Culinaromancer's Chest is a special chest accessible to members who start the Recipe for Disaster quest. It is located in Lumbridge Castle's cellar but is invisible until Recipe for Disaster has been started. 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.

This is a members-only chest from a members-only quest. It cannot be used on a free-to-play world, even by a member.

Unlike other banks but like other Bank chests, players cannot collect their Grand Exchange offers here.




Food store

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. (The reasons behind the odd intervals for chocolate and flour are as yet unclear.)

After the 2 September 2009 Personalised Shops update, each player sees a chest that is personalised to that player: the quantities in the chest are affected only by what that player buys or sells and are not affected by any other player's actions. Prices also now increase as the available quantity decreases, rising 3% for every 10% below maximum stock.

On 9 September 2009 the maximum stock of cooking apples was raised from 10 to the original amount of 50. All other quantities remained unchanged.

Combat store

Metal gloves usable as armour can be bought here. All ten types/colours of these are called only "Gloves" ingame and have no usage requirements other than progressing in the Recipe for Disaster quest. These gloves resemble the normal metal classes (bronze through dragon) plus Basic gloves and Barrows gloves. The Barrows gloves appear exactly like Barrows equipment but do not have to be repaired like the gear.

Each time a subquest is completed, the next type of glove is buyable from the chest. Basic gloves are available after the first subquest is completed, the metal gloves are revealed as each member of the secret council is rescued, and only players who have fully completed Recipe for Disaster may buy the Barrows gloves.

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.

The gloves bought from this store cannot be traded, but the kitchen weaponry can be.

  • Note that the higher-level gloves are somewhat expensive. It may not make sense for some players, for example, to buy the dragon gloves once they become available, if they expect to finish Recipe for Disaster soon. This makes the Barrows gloves available, which are much better armour, and there's no way to get the purchase price of the dragon gloves back. (The best that can be done is to use High Level Alchemy on them, which only gets back a fraction of the purchase price or they can be used as a stake in pvp worlds for full purchase price.)
