The Cauldron is a crafting structure in Valheim.


The Cauldron is used to create mead bases and food items.

Requires a fire source underneath in order to craft with, such as a Campfire or Hearth.

How to build a Cauldron

The Cauldron is created using the Hammer, found under the Crafting tab.

A fire does not need to be present to place the cauldron, only to use/craft with it.

The Cauldron recipe is unlocked only when the player smelts Tin for the first time and has a Forge built.


Mead Base needs to be put into the Fermenter to create the corresponding mead potion.
