|Catches fire from lava||
A lab table can be mined with a pickaxe. With any other tool, the lab table does not drop.

- Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.
Using the lab table opens a 1×9 grid, where elements and compounds can be inserted to perform experiments. The locations of the items in the grid do not affect the outcome. When ready to conduct an experiment, clicking the 'Combine' button initiates the process.
If the result is a viable product, the top images animate to indicate whether a liquid, gas, or solid has been produced. Shortly after, the menu closes, and the successful product appears on the table. If the combined materials did not create a viable product, the process results in a garbage item and one of few animations involving fire and/or explosions. In Bedrock Edition, the table sometimes catches fire when garbage is made.

- Even when two compounds that don't react when combined in real life (like water and salt, or multiple items of the same compound), when they are combined in the lab table, the fire and/or explosion effect still appears, creating a garbage item.
