Required For Making A Cauldron
- 7 Iron ingots
Steps To Make A Cauldron
Step 1. Open Your Crafting Menu
To create a cauldron in Minecraft, let's first open your crafting table. You should see the same grid as in the image below.
Step 2. Add The Iron Ingots To The Menu
In the crafting table, add the 7 iron ingots to the grid.
You must add the items to the grid exactly as shown in the image below. In the 1st row place down 1 iron ingot in the 1st box and 1 iron ingot in the 3rd box. In the 2nd row place down 1 iron ingot in the 1st box and 1 iron ingot in the 3rd box. In the 3rd row place down 3 iron ingots, one in each box. This is the Minecraft cauldron recipe.
Now that you've added the items to the grid as described above, you'll notice the cauldron appear in the box on the right.
Step 3. Move The Cauldron To Your Inventory
After crafting the cauldron, you'll need to drag it down to your inventory so you can use it.
And that's how you craft a cauldron! A Minecraft cauldron is a block used to hold water (and fill water bottles), and if you're using the Bedrock Edition, it can also hold potions, lava, and dyed water (to dye leather armor, for example).
