The Dispenser, companion to the later-added Dropper, is a redstone block in Minecraft. When activated by a Redstone signal, it will shoot out an item in it. Most items shoot out as entities; however, there are a few that don't. These include:

This allows the Dispenser to be used for reward systems, traps, automated armor devices, and farms.


Raw materials needed: 3 Sticks, 3 String, 1 Redstone, 7 Cobblestone



  • The Dispenser is the only item in Minecraft that uses a weapon or tool in its crafting recipe, namely the Bow. It and the Cake are the only items that use unstackable items.
  • It will not activate when moved by a piston in front of a redstone block, but not the same with just regular old redstone.
