In Minecraft, a Furnace is a block used to smelt items. It is used to turn raw materials into finished products, such as Iron Ingots from Iron Ore, Bread from Wheat, and more.
The furnace operates by burning fuel, such as coal, wood, or charcoal, in the bottom slot and placing the material to be smelted in the top slot.
The furnace will then smelt the material, consuming the fuel in the process, and the smelted product will appear in the result slot.
Furnaces are one of the most important blocks in Minecraft, yet they are often overlooked and taken for granted. This guide will teach you everything you need to know about furnaces in Minecraft, from how to make one to how to use it effectively.
To make a furnace in Minecraft, you’ll need 8 Cobblestone blocks.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make a furnace in Minecraft –
Step 1 – Open your crafting table to get your 3×3 crafting grid that looks like this.
Step 2 – Add the 8 cobblestone blocks to the crafting grid. Place them in all slots except for the middle slot in the second column and the middle slot in the third column. It should look like this when you’re done.
Step 3 – Move the furnace from the box on the right of the 3×3 grid to your inventory.
Find a nice spot to keep it – keep in mind that furnaces need oxygen to work, so don’t keep it underground or too close to walls.
Using the Furnace
1) Place the furnace on the ground by right-clicking on the ground.
2) Add fuel to the bottom slot of the furnace (e.g., coal, wood, or charcoal).
3) Add the item you want to smelt or cook to the top slot of the furnace.
4) Wait for the process to complete, indicated by the bar above the furnace filling up.
5) Take out the result from the result slot of the furnace.
