Minecraft’s Better Furnaces mod is a relatively simple mod that gives players a wide variety of new furnace type items to work with. These are made from goods like iron, gold, diamonds and others, and each upgrade of furnace requires the last tier furnace to be created, so crafting the very best furnace requires you to craft about 5 different furnaces beforehand. This gobbles up a lot of resources naturally, but you get a lot more than just cosmetic differences by doing this. Each step up in furnace quality yields faster smelting and cooking operations, to the point where 64 of an item will cook in a few seconds.
Iron furnaces, made by surrounding a standard furnace with iron ingots, cook at 1.5 times the normal speed. Gold furnaces, made by surrounding an iron furnace with gold ingots, cook at double speed. Diamond furnaces, made with glass and diamonds, cook at 4x speeds. This continues all the way to the extreme furnace, made with some truly rare materials, which cooks at an amazing 50x the speed of the normal furnace; that’s fifty steaks in the time it would take to cook one! The Better Furnaces mod burns through fuel just as fast as it cooks stuff, so keep plenty of coal, blaze rods or lava on hand.
