Dark crab detail.png

Dark crabs are a type of food that can be obtained by cooking a raw dark crab on a fire or cooking range, requiring level 90 Cooking and granting 215 experience when successful. Players may burn a dark crab while cooking one, resulting in a burnt dark crab; the burn rate while cooking these will decrease as players reach higher Cooking levels. Even at level 99, there is still a chance to burn them unless the player is wearing a Cooking cape.

It is highly recommended to use the clay ovens in the Hosidius Kitchen when cooking dark crabs because of the kitchen, as this provides the player the best chances to successfully cook them. However, wearing the Cooking cape will prevent them from being burnt entirely.

They are a relatively popular food source due to the fact that they heal 22 Hitpoints when eaten. The tuna potato and manta ray — as well as anglerfish with 93+ Hitpoints — are also foods that heal 22 Hitpoints; however, these foods weigh more than the dark crab. The anglerfish can also heal the player above their base hitpoints.
