Struggling to get past the levels due to the overwhelming customers and the numerous number of orders that you have to fulfill? Are your friends beating you at Cooking Fever and you are simply getting super frustrated about it? Well, these cheats, tips, and hacks for 2023 should help you through most of the levels and boost your scores along the way.
12 Cooking Fever Tips and Tricks In 2023
Without further ado, here are some of the best tips and tricks in 2023.
1. Get 5000 Free Coins By Watching Ads
Coins are the main currency in the game. You can use them to buy new restaurants, equipment, and interior upgrades. Not only that, but you’ll also need them to compete in different tournaments and challenges, and for playing at the Casino.
As it is, the easiest way to earn coins is by playing the game and passing the various levels. For example, you’ll get coins by serving customers in restaurants, completing achievements, and participating in cooking fever challenges and tournaments. Remember, though, you won’t get any coins if you lose. You’ll also get a Welcome Back Reward for each day you return to the game (make sure you’re connected to the internet, otherwise you won’t get the coins).
If you find yourself in need of more coins, here’s a tip—you can get 5000 free coins by watching an in-game ad. To do that, click on the “5000 free” icon at the bottom left-hand side of the screen. Tap on it and a new window will come up with an ad. Watch the entire video and you’ll be able to claim the coins afterward.
Note: You may have to install another app on your device for the 5000 coin offer to show up.
2. Try to Level Up As Quickly As You Can
Leveling up is super important in the game. All you need to do is serve customers, complete achievements, and upgrade interior and kitchen items.
Not only will it earn you coins, but it’ll also earn you gems, which you’ll need to buy new restaurants, equipment, and food. That’s not all, you’ll also need them to upgrade your restaurant’s interior and to compete in Cooking Fever tournaments and challenges, and in doing so, you’ll get XP.
At the beginning of the game, you’ll only get two gems. As you level up, however, this number will go up (to a maximum of seven). The number of experience points you get will also increase. For instance, you can get up to 900 XP if you have a sushi restaurant. Keep in mind, however, that you’ll need a certain amount of XP to unlock specific types of restaurants.
If you don’t have enough experience points for a specific restaurant, you can replay some of the previous levels. You’ll also get XP by upgrading items. For instance, you’ll get 700 XP by upgrading the aquarium (you’ll need 22 gems) in a seafood restaurant.
And watch out for tasks and achievements—completing them will give you extra experience points (more on this later).
Tip: Don’t buy a new restaurant just because it’s become available. Focus on increasing your experience level. Remember, just because the restaurant is cheap to buy, doesn’t mean that it’s cheap to upgrade. You don’t want to get yourself in a situation where you can’t complete the levels because you can’t afford to upgrade your items.
3. Prepare All of Your Food Ahead of Time
Try to prepare the food before the customers come into the restaurant. You’ll have a few seconds; make good use of them. That way, you’ll already have some of the items ready, which will cut down on wait times. The last thing that you want is to have to deal with all the orders once all the customers come pouring in.
Remember, you can check the main dishes and ingredients on the kitchen table at the center. And beside it, you’ll find the stove, where you can prepare the items.
The more tabletop slots you have, the faster you’ll be able to prepare orders for customers. So make sure to prioritize that (you’ll be able to unlock more as you progress through the game). If anything, it’s especially important at the beginning as you’ll only have one grill and one frying pan available.
4. Don’t Forget to Upgrade Your Kitchen and Food Equipment
There are several reasons why you want to upgrade your food and kitchen equipment. If anything, it’s super essential if you want to progress through the game.
For starters, you’ll get coins every time you upgrade your ingredients. You can then use them to upgrade or purchase new restaurants, among other things. Not only that, but it’ll also make your equipment run faster—things like drink dispensers. And that’ll help with your popularity. As it goes up, more and more customers will return to your restaurant, often with the same orders. That way, you’ll be able to prepare their food more quickly, which will allow you to earn more coins.
Also, it’ll boost your experience level and as we mentioned earlier, it’s one of the best ways to gain coins and gems.
Tip: We recommend buying two sets of cups, plates, and pans for your restaurant. That’ll give you a better chance of completing each level.
5. Try to Complete All the Achievements
Achievements are objectives that when completed, will give you experience points, coins, and other rewards. Depending on the goal, it may be game wide or specific to a certain restaurant.
To check your available achievements, go to the main menu. Tap on the trophies icon on the bottom corner and a window will pop up. For instance, you can complete the “Winner” achievement by completing 21 levels without losing a customer; that will earn you 50 gems and 300 coins. There’s also a “Wake and Bake” achievement, which involves playing the game ten days in a row; that’ll earn you 100 gems and 500 coins.
To collect your reward, all you have to do is tap on the banner at the top of the screen (the game will notify you once you’ve completed an achievement). A red circle will also appear at the top right-hand side of the trophy icon. Tap on it and you’ll be able to collect your rewards by clicking on the claim button.
6. Complete As Many Tasks As Possible
Tasks are different from achievements in that they’re specific to each restaurant. But like the latter, they’ll reward you with coins and experience points upon completion. The number of tasks you finish will also count toward the overall completion percentage for each restaurant location.
To view your available tasks, click on the task icon on the top left-hand side of the screen. You’ll see a set of goals for each restaurant you have. For example, if you have a Chinese Restaurant, you can get 30 gems and 70 coins by upgrading your teapot. And as you get better restaurants, the rewards will also improve. For instance, you can get earn 300 gems and 400 coins by completing all interior upgrades if you have a Sushi Restaurant.
Once you’ve completed a task, a banner will come up at the top of the screen. A small red circle will also appear next to the task icon, indicating that rewards are available. From there, all you have to do is click on the claim button to get your rewards.
7. Keep the Coins on the Counter
Cooking Fever is different from other cooking games in that you don’t have to make “chains” (performing consecutive tasks) to get rewards. Rather, you want to focus on getting three stars for every level. That’ll help maximize your XP gains and earnings.
Given that, you want to keep the coins on the counter if you’re not ready to prepare the order (you only have a limited time to get the food ready once you’ve taken the coins). That’ll give you more time to prepare everything so that you can serve your customers right away once they’ve sat down at your restaurant (you want to serve them one at a time instead of multiple at once). In some cases, they’ll also order the same food item, which will make things easier.
Keep in mind, however, that this only works if you’re on a non-timed level. If you’re on a timed level, you’ll want to finish everything as quickly as possible.
8. Spend Your Gems Wisely
Gems are needed for a lot of things from upgrading your equipment to purchasing new restaurants. They’re also not as easy to come by as coins, so you want to make sure to spend them wisely.
For example, you might not want to spend them on more than two tabletop slots. As long as you know how to manage your time and have two frying pans, you can still complete the levels while meeting specific objectives.
Some offers also require gems for unlocking. For example, you can unlock the cooking machine by paying 15 gems or coins. The latter is easier to get so it’s best to save your gems for other things. If you spend them all, it can take a while for you to get enough to move to a new restaurant location and there are many of them in the game, including Hell’s Kitchen, Indian Diner, FC Barcelona Sports Bar, and Paradise Island Restaurants (unlocking different restaurants will require both coins and gems) For instance, you’ll need 25000 gold and 50 gems to unlock the Seafood Bistro.
Tip: Restaurants will go on sale every now and then so try not to rush when it comes to unlocking restaurants.
9. Pay Attention When You’re Cooking Your Food
Pay attention when you’re cooking. The last thing that you want to do is overcook your food. While burning the ingredients won’t cost you money per se (unless you throw it away), some levels will not allow it, meaning that you’ll have to redo everything from the beginning.
If the level you’re on doesn’t specifically say that burning is not allowed, you don’t have to throw the burnt food away. You should, however, use a second pan for cooking.
To ensure that the foods are taken off the pan at the correct time, turn on the in-game sounds from the settings menu. You should hear a loud “ding” once the food is ready on the stove—that’s when you want to take it off the pan and serve it.
10. Upgrade Your Restaurant
The more you play, the more upgrade options there will be. For example, you can upgrade your kitchen equipment or add arcade machines; the former will allow you to cook more efficiently while the latter will help attract more customers to the restaurant. Not only that, but you can also add tables and bar stools, both of which will lower wait times.
Just remember that you won’t be able to take the upgrades with you once you reach the next level/restaurant. Given that, you want to be careful about what to upgrade. For example, it’s probably not the best idea to spend all your coins and gems on one particular upgrade when you plan on moving your restaurant soon.
11. Take Advantage of the Casino Mini Game
You can unlock the Casino at level 7 (it won’t cost you any coins or gems). Once it’s open, you can play the mini-game every day for a chance to win coins and gems. Just keep in mind that there’s a limit as to how much you can win (up to 30 gems every day).
Basically, how it works is that you can either bet 500 or 1000 coins (maximum is 5000 and 10000 coins). The possible prizes include 600 coins, 1000 coins, or 15 gems.
We recommend claiming your Daily Bonus and using the coins to play the Casino right away. That way, even if you don’t win, you won’t be out of money. And remember, you can try your luck every 12 hours.
12. Don’t Rush Into Challenges
Cooking Fever challenges are great in that you can get some cool rewards but you don’t want to rush into them. As a general rule, it’s best not to participate in challenges until you’ve fully upgraded all of your interior and kitchen upgrades to level 3. That way, it’ll be easier for you to increase your score.
Other Helpful Tips and Tricks
Special offers will be available every now and then. They’re often one-time only and are only available for a limited time (72 hours) so be sure to take advantage of them while you can. For example, they may reduce the price of a specific upgrade or a restaurant
Be careful with automatic food machines. While they’re great to have, they can only be used for 72 hours and are quite expensive. Given that, it’s best to avoid them unless they’re required for the specific restaurant to pass the level with three stars
We recommend saving up all your coins before buying a new restaurant. That’ll allow you to upgrade all the non-gem Interior and Kitchen items immediately, which will give you a head start
Customers will start to become angry and impatient within 20 seconds
You can use special foods and dishes to increase a customer’s tip amount and patience (a treat icon will appear with their order if it’s available). That’ll help you achieve a 3-star rating. In fact, it’s often cheaper to pass a level by offering treats than it is to upgrade your items. The only thing is that they only become available at level 20
Upgrade the most popular food item (one or two will be ordered more frequently than the rest). You can do this by increasing the price of decreasing its preparation time
You’ll receive a set amount of coins every day from the Daily Income Reward. The more levels you’ve completed and the higher the star level, the more money you’ll receive
As far as kitchen upgrades go, you want to start by upgrading the number of frying pans and tabletop spaces available as that’ll allow you to cook and store more food at once. And remember not to cook too much at once as that can cause you to burn your food
Place the cooked dishes in the same spot on the cooking tabletop each time. That way, you’ll know exactly what dish is where, which will prevent you from getting confused when you’re serving a lot of customers at once
Certain interior upgrades will increase the customers’ patience (the amount of time they’re willing to wait and still leave a tip). Others will increase their tip amount
