Minecraft players can speed up their smelting by building a Blast Furnace. In this guide, you will learn how to craft your own mega furnace.

While you can potentially find Blast Furnaces inside an Armorer’s house in Villages, you can also create your own in Minecraft. To make one, you need a regular Furnace, five Iron Ingots, and three Smooth Stone. When you have the ingredients, the crafting recipe for the Blast Furnace is to place the Furnace in the center, the Smooth Stone along the bottom three slots, and the rest of the squares should be filled with your Iron Ingots. When ready, move the Blast Furnace to your inventory to create it.

What does the Blast Furnace do in Minecraft?

Blast Furnaces are essentially supercharged Furnaces for smelting ores in Minecraft. They get the job done in half the amount of time that it takes a normal Furnace to finish smelting, but they also use up double the fuel. However, Blast Furnaces can not smelt just anything — you can only smelt Ore Blocks, Raw Ore, and tools or armor made of Gold, Iron, or Chainmail. When the latter is put in, you receive Nuggets of that resource, and the former gives Ingots. Putting food or wooden items in the top slot will not yield any results.

Additionally, Blast Furnaces are the job site block for Armorer Villagers and can be used to change the profession of one to that.
