Furnaces can naturally be placed in NPC Villages houses. Before the furnace appeared, smelting was accomplished by creating a fire and dropping the ores or raw food into it. The furnace, when right-clicked, has its own smelting menu where smelting operations can be done. It consists of one field for the object that will be smelted, one field for the fuel and one field for the output object.

The fuel is placed on the bottom square, while the object wished to be smelted is placed in the top square. This will cause the arrow start to turn white. Once it is filled, the desired Items will be placed in the adjacent box for the player to take.
- Furnaces are only luminous when lit.
- Lava can be used as fuel in a furnace. It can smelt up to 100 items before it runs out. Using lava as a fuel will remove the bucket holding the lava as well. This method can be a great option if close to lava.
- The furnace ID is initially 61, however, 62 is a lit furnace. The lit furnace does not cook things without fuel though.
