Ender chests are a type of chest that can store items.
|Breaking time[note 1]|
- Times are for unenchanted tools in seconds.
Ender chests can be opened by pressing use. If a solid block is placed over an ender chest, it will not be able to open.
Ender chests can be used like chests, except all ender chests in the world share the same inventory, including in separate dimensions. The ender chests' inventory is also separate for each player. Ender chests contain 27 slots for storage, and can be placed next to other ender chests without joining.

- Unlike chests, changes to an ender chest's name are not reflected in its inventory GUI.
- Like the flower pot and item frame, its idea was suggested by a reddit post.
