A blast furnace is a utility block that generates in a village's armorer houses.


A blast furnace can be used as a faster alternative to smelt ores. It can smelt ore at twice the speed of a furnace, but it will use up fuel twice as fast, and it can only smelt ore-related blocks.So if you want to smelt food, then use a Furnace or a Campfire. They will give less experience to the player when they collect the smelted item. If a village has a blast furnace but no existing armorer, any nearby unemployed villagers without a profession have a chance to become an armorer. Like smokers, blast furnaces can't be pushed by pistons. They have a blast resistance of 17.5 and emit a light level of 13 when active, similar to normal furnaces. Like its original cobblestone counterpart, blast furnaces can interact with hoppers.

  • When active, a blast furnace emits a small amount of light (light level 13), similarly to a furnace, and one light level less than that of a torch.
  • Blast furnaces can interact with hoppers, similar to how a furnace does.
