A blast furnace can be used as a faster alternative to smelt ores. It can smelt ore at twice the speed of a furnace, but it will use up fuel twice as fast, 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 no existing armorer, any nearby unemployed villagers without a profession have a chance to become an armorer. Like smokers, blast furnaces can't be pushed by pistons. They have a blast resistance of 17.5 and emit a light level of 13 when active, similar to normal furnaces. Like its original cobblestone counterpart, blast furnaces can interact with hoppers.
