Generous Cook Potion

From Melvor Idle

The Generous Cook Potion is a potion that can be made with Herblore (skill).svg Herblore. It gives a chance to double the amount of food created when Cooking (skill).svg Cooking. One charge is used per successful cooking action, even if the potion's effect doesn't trigger, however no charges are used when burning food.

The potion's food doubling chance is separate from those provided by Aorpheat's Signet Ring (item).svg Aorpheat's Signet Ring and Cris (pet).svg Cris. With enough luck, it is possible for all three to apply to the same cooking action, resulting in 8x food being created.
