A saucepan is a water container used in cooking.


Water storage

A saucepan can be filled with water from a water source, producing a saucepan with water. To fill a saucepan: Right-click on a water source and "Refill Saucepan". It can hold the equivalent of 25 mugs of water. It is an alternative storage space for water to water bottles, and is automatically drunk by the player to satiate thirst. However, saucepans are significantly heavier than standard water bottles.

A saucepan can be used to purify tainted water, which is dirty water found in unsanitary sources, such as a lake or rain.


A full saucepan can be used to cook rice and pasta, which can be used to prepare custom-made meals.
