Fire makes everything better.

Willow

Cooking is the process of turning raw Food into cooked, or otherwise improved, food which, in general, adds a Health bonus and sometimes improves their Hunger or Sanity benefits as well. There are three types of cooking: Fire, Drying Rack, and Crock Pot.

Cooking food also reduces the spoilage of food. Fire and Crock Pot reduces spoilage by half (e.g. turning 20% fresh food back to 60% fresh), while Drying Rack completely removes spoilage.

On Fire

A Fire Pit.
Cooking with a Dwarf Star.

Cooking food on a Campfire, a Fire Pit or a Dwarf Star is the most basic cooking method. To cook food, simply click on it, bring it to a burning Campfire, Fire Pit, or Dwarf Star and click again when the prompt shows up. Once a food has been cooked, it will be replaced in the inventory with its cooked counterpart. For example, a Morsel becomes a Cooked Morsel, and a Carrot becomes a Roasted Carrot. Cooked Meats generally spoil slower, while cooked Fruits and Vegetables generally spoil faster. There is no difference between cooking on any of the fires.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, it is also possible to cook food on a Chiminea, a Buoyant Chiminea, an Obsidian Fire Pit, a Lava Pool or an erupting Krissure.

In the Hamlet DLC, it is also possible to cook food on Crumbling Brazier and Wall Brazier.

In Don't Starve Together, it's also possible to cook on the Scaled Furnace, Willow's Lighter, Extra-Adorable Lavae, and Magma Pools. Willow, Warly and Walter only take half as long (0.5 seconds) as other Characters (1 second) to cook food.

Some Fruits and Vegetables are generally better consumed cooked than used as ingredients in Crock Pot. Notable examples:

On the other hand, some Vegetables are best consumed raw:

  • Corn Corn.png [+3 HealthMeter.png +25 HungerMeter.png] becomes Popcorn Popcorn.png [+3 HealthMeter.png +12.5 HungerMeter.png] when cooked.

Drying Rack

While not exactly cooking in the full sense of the word, using the Drying Rack to prepare Meats provides a longer-term food storage option to those without an Ice Box. When dried, Meats become Jerky and spoil at a much slower rate. Additionally, Jerky tends to give more of a Health and Sanity bonus than its raw or cooked counterparts.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, it is also possible to dry Seaweed, Jellyfish and Rainbow Jellyfish.

In the Hamlet DLC, it is also possible to dry Poison Dartfrog Legs and Flytrap Stalk.

The Foods which can be dried are listed below:

Meat Dried Time required

Crock Pot

Glommer's Flower.png Main article: Crock Pot

CrockPot.png

Cooking foods using the Crock Pot can combine them into a more ample dish. The Crock Pot requires 4 accepted (some foods such as Seeds cannot be added) items to be combined to produce a dish. Some recipes require or allow for non-foods to be added (most recipes accept twigs as filler). Recipes sometimes produce a dish with a greater Hunger/Health/Sanity bonus than all the ingredients combined. Keep in mind Crock Pots don't always improve the nutritional value of what's put into them, look at Wet Goop or the Powdercake as examples. Some recipes are designed to specifically provide a large Sanity or Health boost but do not fill as much Hunger.

The cooking times for Crock Pot recipes vary. A few foods like Waffles are cooked in as little as 10 seconds, while recipes like Mandrake Soup take a full minute. Most recipes require a certain amount of food (such as Meats or Vegetables) as opposed to specific food items. In the Shipwrecked DLC, Warly brings an exclusive Portable Crock Pot, that can be used to cook four additional recipes. With 4 slots for ingredients, each must be filled with a piece of Food to start cooking. Most recipes take 10–20 seconds to cook (Exact times for each recipe are listed below). Completed Crock Pot dishes can be stacked to 40; none of them can be used in the Crock Pot again

Cooking basics

A cooking attempt's ingredients have to match a recipe. There are 58 recipes available for the Crock Pot, including those from Don't Starve Together & the DLCs. If an attempt fails to match any recipe at all, Wet Goop ends up as the product.

When a recipe is attempted (i.e. the pot starts cooking), the food groups the ingredients fit into are considered; almost all recipes require some amount of Food from certain food groups, but there are many recipes with specific Food requirements (like Froggle Bunwich).

Lots of ingredients fulfill recipe requirements more readily than others (e.g. 1 Drumstick has the same effect on a dish as 2 Morsels). More filling ingredients tend to have greater food values.

Each recipe has weight, called recipe priorities, so a result can be decided when a set of ingredients fits more than one valid recipe. These weights are.

When spoiled ingredients are used, the completed dish's spoil percentage becomes half the average spoil percentage of the ingredients (e.g. if 1 monster meat and 3 berries, all 90% spoiled (10% fresh), are placed in the Crock Pot, the resulting meatball will be 45% spoiled (55% fresh)). Non-spoilable ingredients are ignored when calculating average spoil percentage. In the vanilla game, a meal doesn't begin to spoil until a player removes it from the Crock Pot. Meals remain in the Crock Pot until either a player removes it, a Lureplant "eats" it, or the pot is destroyed.

Ingredients

Food groups

There are 9 recognised food groups when cooking with a Crock Pot:

  1. Meats.png Meats

  9. Bugs.png Bugs (Hamlet icon.png)
  10. Decoration (DST)

Some Foods do not fall into any of these groups (e.g. Butterfly Wings); some fall into multiple (e.g. Fish); some might count as a meat, fruit, or vegetable when fed to a Pig but not when used in a Crock Pot.

An 11th food group, Fat.png Fat, has gone unimplemented.

Filler

An ingredient is "filler" if it can be added to a partially prepared recipe without changing the Crock Pot's output; most recipes call for less than four ingredients, so fillers are need to fill the pot.

When filler is called for, most valid ingredients (see above) will usually work; though some recipes explicitly prohibit a couple ingredients or food groups. For example: Dragonpie cannot have any Meat ingredients in it.

While a lot of recipes prohibit their use; one dish, Kabobs, actually requires Twigs. Using them when possible is efficient, as Twigs are usually easier to get than Food.

Monster Food

If two or more Monster Foods are used in the pot, the crock pot produces Monster Lasagna unless Twigs are added (which makes Wet Goop), or higher priority food is available; thus, only one Monster Food should be attempted as filler for a dish, except Surf 'n' Turf. Though it follows the twig rule, it's useful to note that Bacon and Eggs can be made with two Monster Meat, one tallbird egg, and one stick.

The following is Monster Food:

Monster Meat.png Monster Meat (Raw or Cooked)
Monster Jerky.png Monster Jerky
Durian.png Durian (Raw or Cooked)
Dead Jellyfish.png Dead Jellyfish (Raw or Cooked) (Shipwrecked icon.png)
Dried Jellyfish.png Dried Jellyfish (Shipwrecked icon.png)
Dead Rainbow Jellyfish.png Dead Rainbow Jellyfish (Raw or Cooked) (Shipwrecked icon.png)

Food values

Glommer's Flower.png See also: Food

These "food values" measure how plentifully an ingredient can fulfill a recipe's need for certain food groups. Combined ingredients' food values (in addition to recipe priority) are what determine an attempt's final dish; for example: Honey Ham requires a meat value greater than or equal to 2.0, so in addition to Honey, its ingredients can be 3 Jerky; 2 Jerky & 1 filler; or 1 Jerky & 2 Drumsticks, but 1 Jerky, 1 Drumstick, & 1 filler won't cut it.

The overall set of food values for an attempted dish is the sum of its individual ingredient values. In attempting a dish like Monster Meat.pngMeat.pngMeat.pngBerries.png, the component values are:

  • +1 meat, +1 monster
  • +1 meat
  • +1 meat
  • +0.5 fruit

When added up, the final dish's set of values will be 3.0 meat, 1.0 monster, and 0.5 fruit. resulting in Meaty Stew.

Some ingredients value for two food groups; for example: raw Tropical Fish provides 1.0 fish unit & 0.5 meat units (though Cooked Fish Morsel provides 0.5 fish units & no meat units).

Meat value

Different Meat ingredients have different meat values.

Decorations are a unique food category in Don't Starve Together, containing foods that are wild cards and typically only used in one recipe.

Foods with decoration value of 1.0: Forget-Me-Lots

Foods with decoration value of 2.0: Collected Dust

Priority.png Priority

Priority ratings decides the result of a particular cooking session based on the ingredients used; the highest rated recipe will always be chosen. If there are several valid recipes with the same priority, a random one of those specific recipes will be chosen. Some recipes have priority of 0 or below, which means they will never be chosen over recipes of positive priority. One such recipe is Wet Goop, which is in fact always a valid result, but it's never chosen over anything else because it has -2 priority.

As a simple example, cooking with 4 Meat pieces, both the Meatballs recipe (priority -1) and the Meaty Stew recipe (priority 0) are valid, but the completed dish will always be Meaty Stew, because of greater priority.

If there is more than one recipe with highest priority the game will pick at random. Here is a final example; a dish that uses Fish.pngFrog Legs.pngCorn.pngTwigs.png as ingredients fulfills four different recipes: Fishsticks (10), Fish Tacos (10), Kabobs (5), and Froggle Bunwich (1); two dishes tie, so the result will be Fishsticks 50% of the time, and the other 50% Fish Tacos.

Recipes for the Crock Pot

The following is a list of Crock Pot recipes. There are also recipes exclusive to the Portable Crock Pot not listed here.

A calculator to show what dishes can be made from given ingredients can be found here.

Under Ingredients, icons with a numeric value (like 1.0) represent any ingredient from that food group. Icons without values are specific ingredients. Required ingredients are the minimum food items to make a dish, and attempting to fill a dish with restricted ingredients would lead to a different dish.
