A blast furnace can be used as a faster alternative to smelt Ore. It can smelt ore at twice the speed of a Furnace, but it will make fuel usage faster, and it can only smelt ore-related blocks. They will give less experience to the player when they collect the smelted item. If a village has a blast furnace but there is no armorer, any nearby Villager without a profession has a chance to become an armorer.
