What is a Blast Furnace?

A Blast Furnace is used to smelt items in the Minecraft game, in the same way as in a Furnace. The difference is, that a Blast Furnace smelts ore and (and tools/armour) twice as fast as a normal Furnac, burt it also uses fuel at twice the rate.  It is basically the preferred way to smelt ore in Minecraft.  You cannot cook or bake in a Blast Furnace, however. For cooking, you need a smoker.

You can also find a Blast Furnace in the Armorer’s house, located in any Village, and you can steal it for free.
