A Furnace is an interactive scenery object used in Smithing and Crafting. It is used to smelt various ores into metal bars.

A furnace is also needed for some Crafting purposes. With the appropriate mould in their inventory and the required Crafting level, players can use the furnace to craft gold bars into jewellery (e.g. rings, necklaces, bracelets, amulets) with or without gems. Players can also craft silver bars into jewellery (e.g. rings, necklaces, bracelets, amulets, holy symbols, tiaras, unholy symbols, lightning rods), assuming they have the appropriate mould in their inventory and the required Crafting level. Players may also make molten glass by smelting soda ash and a bucket of sand.

Players with level 43 Magic may choose to use Superheat Item instead of furnaces for smelting, earning both Magic and Smithing experience, although this will prove costly as it requires 1 nature rune and 4 fire runes per bar. Superheat Item does not work for jewellery or melting glass.

The closest furnace to a bank is located in Prifddinas (requiring Song of the Elves), closely followed by the furnace in Edgeville. If you are a new player with limited teleport options and need to make use of a furnace just once, you can teleport to Lumbridge and use the furnace slightly north of the teleport area.

There are several furnaces around Gielenor which are identified with a furnace Furnace icon.png icon on the world map and minimap.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Furnace location # of squares to bank Notes
Edgeville 14 This is currently the 3rd closest furnace to a bank (behind the paid furnace in Shilo Village and the furnace in Prifddinas). Members who wear Varrock armour have a chance of smelting 2 bars at once at this furnace, with experience still being granted. This is the recommended furnace to use.
Al-Kharid 30 This furnace is located just a little north of the bank. It is very close to a bank and is excellent for players with many ores in their bank. This was the recommended furnace to use for free player until the introduction of the Edgeville furnace in free worlds.
Falador West bank: 39
East bank: 54
This furnace is located south of the centre. It is very close to both the east bank and the west bank. This is also a recommended furnace, though Al-Kharid's furnace is slightly closer to a bank.
Lumbridge Second floor: 85
Culinaromancer's Chest (members): 93
This furnace is located north of Lumbridge Castle. The next closest bank is in Lumbridge Castle.
Wilderness, Level 28 Unknown Located in the Wilderness at level 28, it is only useful for the mines in the Wilderness. However, players can also be killed by other players while using this furnace.
Members-only locations
Prifddinas 11 The closest, free furnace, but requires completion of Song of the Elves (currently the closest furnace to an anvil).
Shilo Village 11 The Shilo Village quest is required to enter the village. Technically the closest to a bank but players must pay 20 coins to use it, unless they possess the Karamja gloves 4, but players do not have to pay every time as they can deposit coins with the nearby NPC.
Neitiznot 15 Although this is the 4th closest furnace to a bank, it has the added advantage of being positioned where you don't have to move your camera when smelting or banking. This makes it very good for OSRS Mobile users. Experience rates are on par with Edgeville furnace when not using Varrock Armour.
Mount Karuulm 15 Tied with Neitiznot in terms of distance. Close to the Slayer master Konar quo Maten and can be quickly accessed using the teleport option on Rada's blessing 3 or by fairy ring (code CIR) and traveling up the volcano.
Port Phasmatys 17 The fifth closest furnace to a bank in RuneScape, equipping a ghostspeak amulet or Morytania legs 2 or higher, speeds up banking but is not required.
Piscatoris 22 Quite close to a bank. Swan Song is required.
Mor Ul Rek 25 The furnaces here are Lava forges that are found in both the inner and outer areas.
Burgh de Rott 31 This furnace is not a good place to smelt as it is quite a run from the bank, and there are no significant mining areas nearby.
Lovakengj 37 This furnace is directly in between the Lovakengj bank and the Lovakengj mine.
Zanaris 52 The Lost City quest has to be completed to enter this fairy city. A bank is not very close.
East Ardougne North bank: 41
East bank: 64
This furnace is very close to a bank and is great if a player has many ores in their bank.
Keldagrim Unknown The Giant Dwarf quest is needed to have been started or completed to enter the city. The furnace is actually Blast Furnace minigame. 2500 coins are needed to use it (if you are not 60 smithing). The upside is it uses half as much coal to make high level metal bars.
Wilderness Resource Area Unknown (see notes) Notable for being very close to minable rocks as well as an anvil. The closest bank is the Mage Arena one. Could also bank in Ardougne or Edgeville using the Wilderness lever. However, Piles in the area can turn items to banknotes for a fee, possibly replacing the need for a deposit service.
Darkmeyer Unknown Not very close to bank. Requires Sins of the Father to access and Vyre noble clothing to use safely.
Forsaken Tower Unknown This furnace is not a good place to smelt as it is quite a run from the bank, and there are no significant mining areas nearby.
Entrana Unknown This furnace is mainly used in Crafting to make glass as all the materials are on the island. Bank is very far away.
Rellekka Unknown Usable after completing the quest The Fremennik Trials. A bank is a long walk away, and prior to the release of Song of the Elves was the closest furnace to an anvil.
Tyras Camp Unknown A really long walk away from a bank. This furnace is the farthest from a bank, and as such, is almost never used.
Underground Pass Unknown This furnace is used in the quest to destroy the orbs of light. It is impractical for training but is a real, fully functional furnace.
