Talk:Blast Furnace

Twice as fast with twice the fuel[edit]

So, does a blast furnace and a smoker smelt things twice as fast and burn fuel twice as fast, or does the same amount of fuel go twice as far as it would in a furnace? This needs to be clarified in both articles. ~ Amatulic (talk) 03:02, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Only affect smelting speed, while both blast furnace and furnace burn same amount of fuel per items. ImakerB (talk) 03:41, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
OK, so it burns fuel twice as fast as a furnace, then, along with the rate of smelting being twice as fast. Thanks. ~ Amatulic (talk) 03:53, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Wait, I see the article already says "while using half the regular amount of fuel", so we're both wrong, if that's correct. It's the smoker that burns fuel at double the normal rate so the same amount of fuel is used per item when smoking. ~ Amatulic (talk) 03:54, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Both the smoker and blast furnace have equally long fuel; the “per item” that was referred it was meant as “per fuel item”. Reminder, fuel is represented in ticks, not input smelting progress.
At least, that’s what I remember. FVbico (talk) 05:55, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Well, this is confusing then, and needs to be clarified in both articles. ~ Amatulic (talk) 02:50, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
I checked again, and I was wrong; they do use the same amount of fuel per item to melt; actually VERY slightly more (3 carpers can’t melt an item). The wiki is correct as of now. FVbico (talk) 07:57, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Does not smelt cobblestone or stone[edit]

I play Bedrock Edition and the blast furnace doesn't smelt cobblestone or stone, I would classify these as minerals. The RealEvilSquirrel was here (talk) 18:47, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

They aren't minerals, minerals are ores. FVbico (talk) 18:53, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
