Lava eels are the result of cooking a raw lava eel on a fire or range. They require 53 Cooking to cook, granting 30 Cooking experience; they never burn when cooked. Lava eels may be caught using an oily fishing rod and bait in the lava rivers found in Taverley Dungeon or the Wilderness Lava Maze with 53 Fishing. They can be eaten to heal 11 Hitpoints.
During the Heroes' Quest, guildmaster Achietties will ask players to obtain a cooked lava eel to prove that they are worthy of membership to the Heroes' Guild. Players will then need to visit Gerrant in Port Sarim to learn how to make an oily fishing rod, followed by going to either Taverley Dungeon or the Wilderness Lava Maze to catch an eel.

- Despite living in a lava pool, lava eels are cooked on a fire. In real life, lava is much hotter than a simple campfire. This is also stated in the examine text.
- There was previously a glitch that caused the fishing spots for lava eels to float far above the actual lava. This has been fixed.
