The cooking pot is a crafted block that is used extensively for cooking. Cooking pots allow players to create nutritious meals from other foods, which grant satiety while reducing the rate at which a player's satiety drops.
Cooking pots act as storage containers with four slots, each holding up to 6 pieces of a food item or up to 6L of a liquid. Inedible items can also be placed in a cooking pot.
When placed on a firepit, the firepit interface will reflect the contents of the cooking pot. Ingredients can then be placed in the cooking pot in order to create a variety of meals. Once cooked, the meal must be removed using a bowl on the filled cooking pot. The bowl will "use up" one portion of the meal from the cooking pot.
Cleaning a cooking pot
If food rots inside a cooking pot, the resulting rot must be cleaned out before the cooking pot can be reused. This can be done by throwing the rot-filled cooking pot into a block of water and waiting a few seconds. The rot will float up while the now-empty pot will sink down.
