Usage[edit | edit source]
Empty buckets can be used to "pick up" a Water or Lava source block by doing use on a block of the relevant type. Similarly one can do use when looking at a mooshroom or a cow to fill a bucket with Milk.
A bucket filled with a source block can then be used to place its source block contents in the empty block next to the side of the block the player is currently looking at. If there is already a source block at that location, the bucket will be emptied and not create a new source block as one already exists there. If the aimed at block is too far, nothing happens. If the aimed at block contains a transparent block various things happen according the the properties of the block type. See the Article Liquids#How liquids work.
A bucket full of Milk can only be emptied by drinking it.
In 1.9,[upcoming] an empty bucket can be used to empty a full cauldron, filling the bucket with water.

History[edit | edit source]
|June 15, 2010||Added bucket, can pick up only water and lava.|
|1.0.11||Cows are now milkable.|
|1.0.0||Beta 1.9-pre1||Added mooshrooms, which can be milked like normal cows.|
|Beta 1.9-pre5||In Creative mode, buckets now remain empty when used to pick up water and lava.|
|1.2.1||12w06a||Buckets are now renewable.|
|1.3.1||12w21a||Buckets are now stackable up to 16.|
|12w22a||Smelting in a furnace with a lava bucket now leaves an empty bucket for the player to retrieve.|
|1.8||14w25a||An empty bucket in the fuel slot will fill and become a water bucket after a wet sponge is dried. This happens for empty buckets placed by the player while the furnace is still smelting, and for empty buckets left by lava buckets.|
|Stacked buckets in the fuel slot will become a single water bucket.|
|14w26a||You can only now put one bucket in the fuel slot, fixing the bug above.|
|1.9||15w44a||A full cauldron can now be emptied with a bucket, filling the bucket with water.|

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the Pocket Edition, buckets can hold any block, with the data value corresponding with what will be placed. Since the Bucket of Air doesn't place anything, this slot is used for the milk bucket. Keep in mind all of the special buckets can only be obtained with an external editor. They have the normal bucket sprite.
