SMELTING RESOURCES

The Blast Furnace in Minecraft supports the same features as the regular Furnace except that it can only smelt ores and iron, gold, or chainmail tools and armor. Smelting armor and tools will provide you with iron or gold nuggets useful for other Minecraft crafting recipes.
 

CHANGE A VILLAGE VILLAGER’S JOB

Villages found in Minecraft will often include a Blast Furnace, usually claimed by one of the villagers. If a Blast Furnace is in a Village and isn’t claimed, there is a chance that a villager in that Village will change their job profession to the armorer and claim the Blast Furnace.

LIGHT SOURCE

Like a regular Furnace, Blast Furnaces provide a strong light level of 13 when active. This light level can be helpful when exploring dark caves or building a new home at night!

A MUSICAL DRUM?!

Minecraft blocks often have hidden features that only work when you combine two or more different blocks. The Minecraft Blast Furnace is one of those special blocks! When combined with a Note Block on top, that Note Block will turn into a musical bass drum.
 

PUSH BLAST FURNACES (BEDROCK EDITION ONLY)

Found exclusively in Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, Blast Furnaces in this version of Minecraft can be pushed around by pistons. While being moved by Minecraft pistons, Blast Furnaces will still function normally.

CUSTOMIZE BLAST FURNACES IN MINECRAFT

CHANGE THE NAME OF A BLAST FURNACE

Tailor Blast Furnaces to your Minecraft game and dedicated Minecraft server by customizing the name of that furnace. To change the name of a Blast Furnace, place that Blast Furnace inside of a Minecraft anvil. Once the Blast Furnace is inside the anvil, using only one experience point, you can change the name and get the furnace on the right for your renamed Blast Furnace!

LOCK AND PROTECT BLAST FURNACES (JAVA EDITION ONLY)

Only supported within Minecraft: Java Edition, Blast Furnaces can have a lock placed on them through the /data command. The command /data merge block X Y Z {Lock:”NAME”} will add a lock tag to the Blast Furnace requiring that players have an item with a specific name to be able to use that Blast Furnace.

For example, to lock a Blast Furnace at the coordinates 100,64,-424 so that the furnace is unable to open unless a player is holding an item named “Nitrado Key”, use the command: /data merge block 100 64 -424 {Lock:”Nitrado Key”}

TRY A NEW BLOCK WITH BLAST FURNACES IN MINECRAFT

Using a Blast Furnace in Minecraft offers many great benefits, mainly allowing for smelting ore and gathering nuggets from recycling old tools and armor. Not only that, but taking advantage of the minor features provides a fantastic light source in-game and a sweet musical bass drum.
