What is a blast furnace?
As we have said, this is one of the great novelties included in version 1.14 for Minecraft Java Edition, in a device used to smelt ore into ingots.
Thanks to the blast furnace we can use it not only to melt the ore into ingots but also to meet any part of the equipment and also get the raw ore so that we can reuse it later.
In addition, thanks to the blast furnace we can work twice as fast as a normal furnace. This is ideal to be able to make several ingots in a short space of time.
Another notable feature is that each smelter in the blast furnace uses the same amount of fuel per item as is typically used in a normal furnace. In this way, we will not have to look for additional blocks of coal.
- The blast furnace helps us to melt the ore into ingots.
- The blast furnace can also be used to melt equipment into raw ore so that we can reuse it later.
- With the blast furnace we can work twice as fast compared to the normal furnace. In this way we can make several ingots in a short space of time.
- Smelting in a blast furnace will use the same amount of fuel per item compared to the normal furnace, this way it will not be necessary to search for additional blocks of coal.
How to make a blast furnace in Minecraft
These are all the ingredients and components you need to make a blast furnace in Minecraft:

You can find a normal oven in a town or you can make it yourself. If you want to make the oven yourself, what you need are eight cobblestones.
How to make smooth stones in Minecraft
For this, we must use the normal oven that we have already manufactured previously and insert a stone in the oven. We must wait for the stone to heat up in order to obtain the smooth stone. Remember that we need three smooth stones to make the blast furnace.
How to make iron ingots in Minecraft
To make iron ingots you have three different procedures that we detail below:
- You can use an iron block to be used to make 9 iron ingots.
- You can use 9 iron nuggets to make an iron ingot.
