Overview[]

The Cooking Pot is used for creating food items and dyes.

The Cooking Pot can be lit by placing a fuel source such as   Thatch,   Wood,   Sparkpowder or   AnglerGel into its inventory and activated by pressing the 'Use' key (default E or pressing and holding Y). Holding the 'Use' key will open the radial menu, where the player can choose to open its inventory, light it, or destroy it.

Usage[]

The Cooking Pot is used to craft   Food Items as well as   Kibble.

During Events, the Cooking Pot can be used to craft Skins.

It is also used to create   Soap and all different colors of   Dyes.

After putting the necessary ingredients into the cooking pot, including fuel and a Waterskin, Water Jar or Canteen that is at least 25% full, light the fire using the button below its inventory slots. Every few seconds (or possibly every minute), the ingredients will be consumed and produce one item. Water Jars and Canteens, despite holding two and three times as much water as a waterskin, are all single use.

Fuel[]

The Cooking Pot can be fueled by various flammables.

Using Thatch or AnglerGel will help to avoid creating Dyes.

Recipes[]

See the Recipes for a list of Recipes. Alternatively, you can create your own recipes - see the Custom Consumable page for more info.

When making edibles make sure to remove any   Charcoal as dyes will be produced instead. Alternatively, you may use a different fuel, such as   Thatch, that does not produce any charcoal when burnt.

Notes[]

  • The Cooking Pot is treated as a thatch structure and can be damaged by anything except non-explosive ranged attacks.
  • By putting water containers on your hotbar, standing in a source of water and building the Cooking Pot in front of you, it is possible to keep the Cooking Pot in water without closing its inventory thus reducing necessary trips to a beach or   Water Tap.
  • If a cooking pot is touching or too close to water, the button to light the fire won't show up.
  • If a   Hesperornis Egg is cooked in the pot, it will quickly be turned into twelve   Oil. This is a good way for beginners of getting   Oil.
