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, mud,‌[Minecraft Earth only] 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, lava or mud[Minecraft Earth only] source block by pressing use item on a block of the relevant type.

Similarly one can press use when looking at a cow 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 be emptied only by drinking it or by using it in crafting a recipe (like cake).

An empty bucket fills with water when placed in the fuel slot of a furnace while smelting a wet sponge.

An empty bucket can be used to empty a cauldron with water, filling the bucket with water. This does not work with dispensers.[2]

An empty bucket can be used to empty a cauldron with lava, filling the bucket with lava. This does not apply to Java Edition.
