BUCKET TO THE RESCUE! Three iron ingots and a crafting table later, and you’ve got yourself the perfect vessel for transporting any liquid or wet fish that your heart desires. And I know how much your heart desires wet fish.

Duncan Geere[1]

Buckets are tools used to carry water, lava, milk and fish.

Obtaining[edit]

Crafting[edit]

Ingredients Crafting recipe
Iron Ingot

Natural generation[edit]

Buckets can be found in 18.5% of dungeon chests, 11.3% of savanna village house chests, and 18.5% of woodland mansion chests, all in stacks of 1.

Usage[edit]

Empty buckets can be used to "pick up" a water or lava source block by pressing use item on a block of the relevant type. Similarly one can press use when looking at a cow or a mooshroom to fill a bucket with milk. Empty buckets can also be used to collect fish in buckets.‌[Legacy Console and Bedrock editions only]

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, or replacing the block looked at for some replaceable blocks.

A bucket full of milk can only be emptied by drinking it or by using it in crafting a recipe (like cake).

Placing an empty bucket in the fuel slot when smelting wet sponge in furnaces will fill it with water after the process.

An empty bucket can be used to empty a cauldron with water, filling the bucket with water.

An empty bucket can be used to empty a cauldron with lava, filling the bucket with lava.

Data values[edit]

In Bedrock Edition, buckets use data values to determine contents. Once used, each data value is set to 0 (Empty Bucket). If no data value is provided, the data value is 0.
