How to Use a Blast Furnace in Minecraft
As you might have noticed you can not throw in your favourite meats or potatoes in there to cook for some health increasing good food. That is because although the blast furnace is tailored for speed so smelt things much quicker, It isnt designed for food.
An easy way to think about it is, a Blast Furnace will only melt metals/ores. Its the counterpart to the smoker which primarily cooks food faster for you.
So can only smelt any ore block much faster than a furnace would. Other items you can smelt include tools and Armor such as iron leggings on chest chain mail.
It smelts it at twice the rate of a normal furnace, so your able to produce double the mount that you would have previously.
You can also find a lot of useful information of the Minecraft Fandom page.
