A cooking pot is a water container used in cooking.


Water Storage

A cooking pot can be filled with water from a water source, producing a cooking pot with water. To fill a cooking pot: Right-click on a water source and "Refill Cooking Pot". 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, cooking pots are significantly heavier than standard water bottles.

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