The main use of the bucket is to obtain liquids; mostly water , which is necessary for farming . Keeping some water while mining can guard you from lava. Water cannot yet be drunk unless put into Glass Bottles .

Buckets can also hold lava , which can be used in mob traps and creating useful resources like obsidian and cobblestone . Milk , also holdable in buckets, can cure all effects (e.g. Food Poisoning, Swiftness, Wither) and can be used to make Cakes . All liquids are obtained simply right clicking on the source of liquid, a cow in the case of milk.


  • A bucket can be filled with lava and be completely fine. However, if a bucket is thrown into lava, it is destroyed.
  • Even though not quite as obvious, a bucket can be used as a griefing tool on servers (as they can be used to pick up/place water and lava). For this reason, several servers ban this item.
