The Mechanical Mixer is a mechanical component that applies Mixing recipes and shapeless Crafting recipes to items in Basins.



Mechanical Mixer can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing.

Mechanical Mixer


The Mechanical Mixer is powered by an internal cogwheel, and will behave as one to any adjacent components, relaying and reversing rotation sideways.

The Mixer requires a minimum rotational speed of 32 RPM from its power source to work. Mixers will process ingredients faster the more speed it is given.

To work, a Mixer must be placed directly above a Basin, with a 1 block gap. When a valid recipe is inserted by throwing the ingredients in the Mixer, the Mixer will automatically combine the ingredients.

Automating Shapeless Recipes[]

All shapeless crafting recipes can be made automatically using the Mechanical Mixer by inserting required items into the Basin under the mixer. An example of such recipe is:

Automating Brewing[]

All Brewing recipes can be made automatically using the Mechanical Mixer by inserting the required items and fluids into the Basin under the mixer. Brewing recipes require heating with a blaze burner.


The Mechanical Mixer may be used to perform mixing recipes, which are not possible to make anywhere else. Those recipes include:
