Unbeknownst to many, there are different types of furnaces in the game. One of them is called a blast furnace that can only be crafted with the help of smooth stones. To craft this furnace, players need one normal furnace, three smooth stones and five iron ingots.

This is a special furnace that can only smelt ores and other raw materials except for food items. The only advantage is that they can smelt items twice as fast as normal furnaces, making them quite useful.
