Minecraft has finally announced the Minecraft 1.21 update, along with multiple features it will bring. Apart from this, the winner of Mob Vote has also been revealed, and it will be Armadillo who will be making its debut. However, Mojang will be bringing a revolutionary feature called Crafter that will help you automate the crafting with Redstone, and here is precisely what it is and how you can craft items automatically with it. 

Minecraft Crafter Guide: How Does Automatic Crafting Work?

The Crafter is a utility block that allows you to input a recipe and craft items automatically with a redstone signal. It has nine slots for ingredients and one slot for output. You can place items in the slots to set up a recipe and then use a lever, button, or other Redstone device to activate the Crafter.

The Crafter will then consume the items from the input slots and produce the corresponding item in the output slot.

It also has a feature to toggle or disable slots, which can help you prevent unwanted items from entering the Crafter. For example, if you want to craft bread, which requires three wheat in a horizontal row, you can disable the top and bottom rows of slots by clicking on them. This way, only wheat can be placed in the middle row, and no other item can interfere with the recipe.

Currently, there is no information on how you can craft Crafter in Minecraft; however, we will update this page as we get more details about it.
