An attractive or practical Cauldron can be crafted with relative ease in Minecraft. In order to create a witchy-looking pedestal, you need only a specific metal and some imagination.
How To Make a Cauldron in Minecraft?: Tools Necessary to Construct a Cauldron
You’ll need seven iron ingots to create a cauldron. Iron Ingots should be spread out across a crafting table, with the exception of the top middle and centre slots. In a nutshell, you now have a clever method of preserving precious liquids for later use.
You’ll have to do some serious digging to unearth some Iron Ore, which can then be smelted into Iron Ingots. Then you can toss the Iron Ore into a furnace to turn it into Iron Ingots.
Anything and Everything That Fits in Cauldron

When and Where to Look for Cauldron Created by Nature
If you’re up for some adventuring, you can find Cauldrons in a variety of different places. Remember that a Pickaxe is required to mine Cauldrons effectively. A Cauldron won’t just fall over if you smash it with a hammer or some other tool instead of a pickaxe.
- A cauldron can be found in any witch’s swamp dwelling (this is sometimes filled with Potions in the Bedrock Edition)
- The cauldrons of Igloo basements are often found only halfway full of water.
- Cauldrons can be found in certain of the Woodland Mansions’ rooms.
- Cauldrons are a common fixture in the homes of Leatherworker Villagers in the Desert, Plains, Savanna, Taiga, Snowy Taiga, and Snowy Tundra biome Villages (which are also their job site blocks)
Preparing Food in a Cauldron
Cauldrons can be filled with a variety of materials after they have been set down. It will require the use of buckets and bottles to accomplish this. In addition, the processes involved in the use of different types of nonhostile liquids are generally similar.
Use Cauldron as a Water Source
A Cauldron can be filled to its brim with a single Water Bucket, which can be created by placing an empty Bucket on a water source block. A similar amount of water (three Water Bottles) can be used to fill a Cauldron. The water in a cauldron can be used to fill an empty bucket or several glass bottles, turning the cauldron into a Water Bucket or a few Water Bottles.
Use Cauldron as a Lava Source
A Bucket can be used to move lava between cauldrons in the same way that water is moved between pots. Cauldron lava, however, can’t be collected in glass bottles. Lava in a Cauldron serves no purpose other than to look cool.
However, if you find some source blocks and equip a Pointed Dripstone, this mechanism can aid in your collection of lava. Get a Cauldron and put it 1 blocks below a lava source you find above you.
The next step is to set the Pointed Dripstone on the Cauldron. The lava can then slowly fill the metal container.
Use Cauldron as a Snow Source
Snow, as the only solid that can be stored in a Cauldron, behaves a little differently than the other fluids. A Cauldron can be filled with snow in two ways: either by emptying Powder Snow Buckets into it or by putting an empty Cauldron outside in the snow.
Empty Buckets that can be stuffed with Powder Snow are called Powder Snow Buckets. A Powder Snow block is placed wherever a Powder Snow Bucket is used.
Use Cauldron as a Potions Source (Bedrock Edition-only)
Cauldrons, like water containers, can be filled and emptied with Glass Bottles. A Bucket without any contents cannot be used to retrieve concoctions from a cauldron. The volume ratio for potions is the same as it is for water.
A Cauldron can hold the equivalent of three Glass Bottles of potions. If you’re into archery, you might find this: Arrows can be tipped in potions kept in a Cauldron. Standard Arrows can be used on a cauldron of potions with little more than a steady hand.
Use Cauldron as a Dyed Water Source (Bedrock Edition-Only)
The water in a cauldron can be coloured with any dye you like. Leather goods can be dyed by dunking them in this colourful solution. When transferred to a clear container like a bucket or bottle, coloured water reverts to its original state.
As an aside, in both the Bedrock and Java Editions of Minecraft, you can undye leather armour by placing it in a Cauldron with water.
The water in the Cauldron will not change colour, though. It’s been theorised that washed-off dye from armour goes the same place as despawned mobs and cursed Minecraft skins, but no one knows for sure.
