Cookie Clicker Wiki
Open sesame control panel.

Open Sesame provides all sorts of commands to apply with just a click (earns cheated cookies taste awful achievement).

Open Sesame is the control panel for Cookie Clicker. It can be opened with a console command, or by changing the name of your bakery. Opening the panel will award the player the "Cheated cookies taste awful" Shadow Achievement for cheating in cookies, even if the panel's functions are not actually ever used, you have to log in then out after.

The panel has many features, such as spawning Golden Cookies with whatever power you want. It also includes features such as debug upgrades, that do various things from making golden cookies spawn rapidly to setting cookie production to 0. Additionally, holding "CTRL" on your keyboard while clicking a Wrinkler will toggle it between its shiny and normal state.

Upgrades can be added and removed at will, either with the add/remove all buttons on the panel, or by toggling them on/off from the stats menu using a debug upgrade. For instance, you can remove "Cheated cookies taste awful", making it appear as though you haven't cheated.


There are two methods to open the console.

  • You can open the console using the function Game.OpenSesame();.
  • On the web version of the game, you can instead add 'saysopensesame' to the end of your bakery's name. For example, "Rachel's Bakery" becomes "Rachel saysopensesame's Bakery", or "Rachelsaysopensesame's Bakery". It is worth noting that if adding this phrase to the end of the name exceeds the character limit, the game will cut off the end of the phrase, and the command will not work. Changing your name afterwards will not close the console unless you refresh the page. This method does not work in the Steam version of the game.
    • To leave debug mode, remove the 'saysopensesame' from your name, save the game and then reload the page.

There are eleven new debug upgrades in Open Sesame mode. As this is virtually a hack, they are all ridiculously overpowered. All the upgrades can be toggled on and off at will for the price of seven cookies directly under the Upgrades tab in the Stats menu.

  • The flavour text of "Ultrascience" may be a reference to a quote said by Jesse Pinkman in a Breaking Bad episode titled "A No-Rough-Stuff-Type Deal."
  • The flavour text of "Turbo-Charged Soil" is a reference to a line from Idiocracy where the idiotic people in the future think electrolytes is what plants crave.
  • The flavour text of "Reindeer Season" is a parody of the reindeer names roll call in the Santa's Reindeer song.
  • The flavour text of "Magic Shenanigans" is based on a meme of the same name.
  • The debug upgrades "Web cookies" and "Steamed cookies" are Flavored Cookies normally available in the game's web version and Steam version, respectively; they are included in the debug menu to enable them in the version they're not normally available in, but doing so will not provide any benefit to the player (hence the effectiveness of 0% and the text "Only of any use in Cookie Clicker's web/Steam version, of course"). Players can acquire "Web cookies" in the Steam version, and "Steamed cookies" in the web version, without cheating by exporting their save between the two versions (the effectiveness will still be 0% for the mismatching upgrade). This makes "Web cookies" and "Steamed cookies" the only debug upgrades that can be acquired without cheating. However, upon ascension, Steam players will lose "Web cookies" and web players will lose "Steamed cookies" unless they are enabled through cheating or until exporting the saves again.
  • The beginning 2 sentences of the flavour text of "Steamed cookies" is a reference to the Simpsons scene known as "Steamed Hams".
