A furnace is an interactive scenery object primarily used in Smithing to smelt various ores into metal bars. Furnaces around Gielinor are identified with a furnace Furnace icon.png icon on the world map and minimap.

Furnaces are also used for Crafting from metal bars. With the appropriate mould in their inventory and the required Crafting level, players can use the furnace to craft gold or silver bars into jewellery such as rings or holy symbols, 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.

Due to a furnace's distance from a bank, players with level 43 Magic may choose to use Superheat Item instead of furnaces for smelting bars, earning both Magic and Smithing experience, at a higher overall cost.

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.
