A Bucket is a tool crafted by using a crafting table and requires 3 Iron Ingots. It can be used to hold water, lava, or milk, which can then be consumed (milk only), or spilled to make a pool (water and lava only).

Uses

The main use of the bucket is to obtain liquids; mostly water, which is necessary for farming. Keeping some water while mining can guard you from lava. Thus, it is highly recommended to have at least one water bucket when mining to help avoid damage from lava and the occasional fire. Water cannot be drunk unless put into Glass Bottles.

Buckets can also hold lava, which can be used in mob traps and creating useful resources like obsidian and cobblestone. Milk, also holdable in buckets, can cure all effects (e.g. Food Poisoning, Swiftness, Wither) and can be used to make Cakes. All liquids are obtained simply right clicking on the source of liquid, a cow in the case of milk.

Crafting

Buckets can be found sometimes in Dungeon and Woodland Mansion chests. Alternatively, it can be made in a Crafting Table in the following arrangement:

Trivia

  • Interestingly enough, buckets are destroyed by lava (when dropped) but can hold lava (when used).
  • Even though not quite as obvious as other items, a bucket can be used as a griefing tool on servers (as they can be used to pick up/place water and lava). For this reason, several servers ban this item.
  • Even though buckets are stackable, if two buckets are filled with the same liquid they can't stack and stay separate.
