The ultimate Minecraft Pocket Edition recipe guide - Smelting

Minecraft - Pocket Edition is all about building ridiculous architectural wonders by finding raw resources in the world and crafting them into handy tools and building materials.

You can turn some wood and stone into a hardy pickaxe, or melt sand down into glass. You can make bookshelves, or dye wool, or forge a golden apple, or cut rough cobblestone blocks into posh stone bricks.

In our handy charts below, and on the other pages, you can find out how to make everything in the world of Minecraft, and how to find the right materials.

Crafting - Smelting - Raw Materials Smelting

Once you've crafted a furnace, tap on it to enter the smelting menu. This lets you make new objects by melting down certain materials. Here's how to use it.

Tap the top-most box, and then choose one of the highlighted materials from your inventory on the left of the screen. Then, tap the box below and pick one of your fuels.

You need to provide enough fuel so that the material completely melts (represented by the arrow that changes from grey to white) before your fuel is used up. You can put in a lot of fuel, and you can collect any leftovers when the smelting process is over.

In our smelting guide below, you can make the objects in the left-hand column by melting down the material in the right-hand column.
