The Cooking Pot in Palworld is a key structure that unlocks a world of improved cooking possibilities for you and your Pals. It functions as an upgrade to the basic Campfire
- 20 Wood: This is a common resource found throughout the world. Chop down trees with an Axe to gather Wood.
- 15 Ingots: Smelt Ore in a Furnace to obtain Ingots. Focus on mining Iron Ore for basic Ingots, or explore for other Ores like Copper or Gold for higher quality materials.
- 3 Flame Organs: These are dropped by defeating fire-based creatures like Ignis and Cinderscale. You can also find them in treasure chests or purchase them from some shops.
Crafting the Cooking Pot:
- Unlock the Technology: Head to the Technology menu and research “Cooking Pot” under the “Structures” tab. This requires reaching Level 17 and spending 2 Technology Points.
- Open the Crafting Menu: Press “B” by default to open the crafting menu.
- Navigate to the “Cooking” Category: Use the tabs or directional buttons to find the cooking section.
- Select the “Cooking Pot” Blueprint: Choose the Cooking Pot from the available options.
- Craft it!: Ensure you have enough Wood, Ingots, and Flame Organs in your inventory. Click “Craft” to build your Cooking Pot.
- Placement: Put your Cooking Pot near a water source for easy access while cooking.
- Fueling the Flame: You’ll need a fire source to cook. Assign a fire-type Pal like Ignis or Cinderscale to tend the flame, or use consumable fuels like Bonfire Sticks.
- Cooking Up a Feast: The Cooking Pot allows you to cook various food items, from basic meals to special dishes. Experiment with different ingredients to discover new recipes and their effects on your Pal’s stats and mood.
- Ethical Considerations: Remember that Palworld allows cooking captured Pals. While this is a gameplay mechanic, consider the ethical implications before engaging in such actions.
Beyond the Basics:
- Upgrading Your Pot: As you progress, you can upgrade your Cooking Pot to a Cauldron or even a Golden Cauldron for increased durability and fancier cooking options.
- Mastering the Culinary Arts: Discover rare ingredients, experiment with cooking techniques, and create unique dishes to truly become a Palworld chef!
