How to Make a Cauldron in Minecraft

Have you ever wanted some assistance with potion making in Minecraft, rather than filling the empty Glass Bottles the whole day?

Well, it’s not a secret that you can just fill up buckets and add them to a crafted cauldron, which will speed up the process, and help you use your brewing stand more often.

In this article, we will explain how to make a cauldron in Minecraft, and how it can help with brewing potions faster.

What is a cauldron in Minecraft

The cauldron is one of the most important blocks in Minecraft when it comes to brewing potions or giving jobs to villagers. If you place a cauldron next to a villager he will immediately become a leather worker. That’s because the cauldron will help him to create dyed gears and offer them for trades.

In Minecraft, Java Edition cauldrons can be filled up with water and lava, even in the Nether world. However, if you are a Bedrock Edition player, you can even place dyed water, used later for dying your armors. Mixing the dye with the water is the right way to do this.

You can also add lava or water for your potion brewing or lava experiments. The maximum amount of use a cauldron with water has is only 3 glass bottles. After that, you will notice that there is no water and will need a refill.

Where can I find a cauldron in Minecraft

The only way to find a cauldron in Minecraft would be in the villages. But only the plains and desert villages will have a cauldron filled up with water, and a villager working the leather worker job.

If you have no luck finding desert or plains villages for cauldrons, you can craft one on your own, which doesn’t require too many materials.

What materials do I need to make a cauldron in Minecraft

To make a cauldron in Minecraft you will need to have 7 iron, which does not take much time to find. Iron is very easy to be found in the mines as it is one of the most discoverable ores, and does not require deep digging.

However, to mine the iron ore, you will need to have a stone pickaxe, furnace, and fuel to power the furnace.

Now since you have gathered the needed materials, you will need to place the iron and your burnable material in the furnace. Depending on the fuel you have placed, it may take a certain amount of time and resources to finish the smelting.

When the smelting has finished, you can proceed to your crafting table and place the iron ingots in a “U” form. This means that you should fill all slots except in the middle of lines 1 and 2.

Once you have placed all the iron ingots in the correct way, a cauldron should appear directly, ready to pick up. It can be placed on any block and can be filled only with buckets.

Can I stack cauldrons in Minecraft

You can stack up to 64 cauldrons per inventory slot, and that cannot be changed under normal circumstances. You can download a special stack expanding plugin or a mod to handle more cauldrons per stack.
