This article is about the base material. For the block, see Block of Iron. For the ore, see Iron Ore

Iron Ingots are very useful items in Minecraft. They can be used to craft tools and armor as well as many other items. They can be found in Villages, Stronghold, and Abandoned Mineshaft chests. However, in the natural world, Iron Ore can be found and mined with a Stone Pickaxe or higher and must be smelted. To obtain it without mining, kill Iron Golems or Zombies.

How to obtain


  • Iron Ingots and Gold Ingots are the only ingots in Minecraft.
  • Iron Ingots are in more Crafting recipes than any other item.
