Cooking Pots allow you cook any raw foods in a chest over a fire.


Cooking pots consist of three parts:

  1. A block to burn, with a [Cook] sign on it. (Netherrack recommended)
  2. A fire on the block with the sign on it.
  3. A chest, to cook inside.

Placing raw ingredients into the cooking pot will cause it to cook them, depending on fuel quantities. It is configurable whether the cooking pot will just work on foods, or if it will also work on other smelt-able resources such as ores.

It is possible to open the chest by right clicking the cook sign regardless of if the chest is obstructed, so it is therefore possible to put blocks over the top of the chest.


If the option to require fuel is done, a fuel source. To use the fuel source, right click the sign while holding it. If require fuel isn't enabled however, fuel still works and increases the speed of cooking.


If enabled in the configuration, it is possible to use redstone as a fuel source. For each power level of redstone, the cooking pot will gain 1 fuel point.
