As a Crafting Recipe
8 Cobblestone ==> 1 Furnace
There are three fields inside the Furnace: one field for the object that will be smelted, one field for the fuel and one field for the output object.
The smelting process will continue in the Furnace, even when the smelting menu is closed, but field with the object that are smelting and field with fuel are full.
The fire icon shows the fuel burn time. When the fire icon go down, it mean that the player needs to put one more block of fuel. If there is enough fuel, and all objects are smelted, the Furnace will stop using additional and current fuel.
The Furnace will became inactive, if there is no fuel in the field for fuel. In this situation, the player has to re-add the fuel.
Usefulness of cooking in the Furnace, is that the Food, cooked in the Furnace, restore more hunger points than Raw Food.
The fuel can be wood, wood planks, coal, chest and crafting table.
