A Furnace Block

The Furnace is a block used to smelt ores or to cook raw food and ingredients to make recipes. It is required to smelt ingots which are used to make a variety of tools and as such the furnace is a vital piece of equipment.

Furnaces can be crafted by placing four pieces of basalt adjacent to one another while in the inventory or workbench crafting interface.

As of update 2.0, furnaces can smelt 3 materials instead of 2 and now have easy smelt.

Fuels for the fire include coal, wooden planks, sticks, buckets of lava, and uranium.

Uses[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Before Update 1.8 introduced basalt mountains on the surface, the furnace was moderately hard to get without the use of a shop. The player had to mine down almost 400 blocks just to mine the basalt required to make a furnace.
