A Cauldron is a block that can be filled with water when right-clicked upon with a Water Bucket. When filled, a Cauldron can be used three times to fill three Glass Bottles, or, since 1.4, can be used to wash off the dye from Leather Armor, however this consumes just as much water as using a water bottle. The Water Bottles, on the other hand, are key ingredients for the Brewing of Potions using a Brewing Stand. A Cauldron is currently, without the use of mods or cheats, the only way to get water into the Nether. Cauldrons can be found in Witch Huts, alongside a crafting table.
