This article is about cooked karambwan. For other uses, see Karambwan
Cooked karambwan is a food obtained when a raw karambwan is cooked thoroughly. Preparing it requires 30 Cooking, healing 18 hitpoints each. Unlike most other food, they can be consumed nearly instantly with no delay after consuming another food item, such as a shark, known as "combo eating"; this makes them a favourable item for player killing. The "combo eating" tactic can be enhanced further by drinking a dose of Saradomin brew alongside a karambwan and the base food item, enabling a player to heal over 50 hitpoints very rapidly. An additional benefit is that eating a karambwan in combat only adds a delay of two ticks before the player can attack again, while most other foods have a delay of three ticks.
Karambwan give 190 Cooking experience when cooked. For the list of known burn levels, refer to the burn level article. The success rate is 49% at level 30 and increases linearly to 100% at level 99.
In order to thoroughly cook it a player must first complete Tai Bwo Wannai Trio and then talk to Tinsay. Otherwise, players can only cook it into poison karambwan.
It is possible to use tick manipulation to cook raw karambwans in one tick (where other food takes four) to obtain a large amount of Cooking experience in a shorter amount of time.
