How Long Do Furnaces Last?

7 Answers 7 Sorted by:

Note that the effective efficiency of the long-burning materials goes down rapidly if you dont restock the furnace.

Sorting the entries in this table based on the last column gives this list:

  • Lava Bucket
  • Block of Coal
  • Blaze Rod
  • Charcoal
  • Coal
  • Fence
  • Fence Gate
  • Wooden Stairs
  • Wooden Pressure Plate

  • Crafting Table
  • Trapdoor
  • Huge Mushrooms
  • Note Block
  • Jukebox
  • Wooden Tools and Weapons
  • Wooden Slabs
  • Stick
  • Saplings

  • @Meraj99 – Because you can use them as fuel for a furnace xD

    Since Block of Coal is stackable, that makes it a little better than Lava Bucket, because as Celtas answer states that Lava Bucket can cook 100 meat, Block of Coal doing 80. A stack of Block of Coal would be 80×64, doing simple math would tell you that (80×64) is bigger than 100. I hope this helped. (Please dont remove hashtags)

    Lava bucket, block of coal, blaze rods, coal and charcoal are the good fuels, however if you are in a survival situation, you may need to use items like saplings and sticks.

  • bucket of lava
  • coal block
  • blaze rod
  • coal/charcoal
  • jukebox
  • note block
  • wood
  • sticks
  • saplings
  • Greatest to least: Blaze Rod, Lava Bucket, Coal, Charcoal, Wood, Wooden Planks, Wooden Slabs, Wooden Tools, Saplings.
