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 mooshroom to fill a bucket with milk.

Empty buckets can also be used to collect fish in buckets.

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).

An empty bucket can be used to empty a cauldron with water, filling the bucket with water. This does not work with dispensers.[1]

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