Cauldrons are one of Minecraft’s many items but they have several interesting and unique uses. This blog post will highlight those uses, as well as all the ways to obtain a cauldron.
Method 1 (Finding)
1. Locate a village, woodland mansion, igloo, or witch hut.
2. Find a cauldron within the structure you have found, and break it with a pickaxe! (Beware as many of these structures have dangerous mobs that guard the precious items within!)
Method 2 (Crafting)
1. Obtain seven iron ingots.
2. Place these ingots in a crafting table in a "U" formation and craft the cauldron. Done!
Uses of Cauldrons in Minecraft
Cauldrons have several important uses. They can be used to hold potions, water, lava and several other liquids. Below is a list of several specific uses.
Tipped Arrows (Bedrock Only)
In the Bedrock edition of Minecraft, you can fill a cauldron with a potion and right click the arrows onto the cauldron. The potion effects will be transferred to the arrows. This method is much more cost efficient than crafting tipped arrows manually.
Dyed Water (Bedrock Only)
In the Bedrock edition of Minecraft, you can fill a cauldron with water and then dye it with a certain color. You can use this feature to do extremely interesting things, such as dying leather armor!
By placing water or lava above a dripstone block, the liquid will drip through the dripstone and fall to the ground. If you place a cauldron below the dripstone, it will collect the water or lava. Interesting feature!
If you place a cauldron in snowing weather, it will collect the snow. Once the cauldron is full, you can use a bucket to pick up the snow as powdered snow!
