The Crock Pot is a Food Tab structure that is used to cook various food items. It requires a Science Machine to prototype, and costs 3 Cut Stone, 6 Charcoal, and 6 Twigs to craft.

Icon Tools Usage

A Crock Pot has four food item slots which must be filled in order to begin the cooking process. Only one item can be placed in each slot. An average recipe takes 40 seconds to cook (exact times are listed in each individual recipe). All Crock Pot dishes can be stacked to 40, and actual Crock Pot meals cannot be added to a Crock Pot slot. Spoiled Food used in a Crock Pot has a chance to result in Rot; the spoilage value is averaged among the ingredients, then halved.

Cooked meals in the vanilla game will not begin to spoil until the player removes them from the Crock Pot. In other words, Crock Pot meals will remain on the Crock Pot until either the player removes it, a Lureplant "eats" it, or the pot is destroyed.

Food categories

Crock Pot recipes differentiate between the following five (5) food categories:

Some foods do not fall into any of these three categories (e.g. Butterfly Wings Butterfly Wings). Some foods may also act like a meat or vegetable/fruit when fed to Pigs, but do not count as that category for Crock Pot recipes.


Valid Ingredients

The following items can be used in a Crock Pot:

Meats Meats (Raw or Cooked)
All eggs Eggs (Raw or Cooked)
Fruit Fruits (Raw or Cooked)
Vegetables Vegetables (Raw or Cooked)
Sweetener Sweeteners
Twigs Twigs
Mandrake Mandrake
Butterfly Wings Butterfly Wings
Butter Butter
Electric Milk Electric Milk (Reign of Giants icon)

Invalid Ingredients

The following items can not be used in a Crock Pot:

Rot Rot
Seeds Seeds (Raw or Cooked)
Petals Petals / Dark Petals Dark Petals (including Garland Garland)
Rotten Egg Rotten Eggs or Hatching Tallbird Egg Hatching Tallbird Eggs

Note: Most recipes accept the "Cooked" versions of foods as ingredients, with the exception of the following:

Turkey Dinner Turkey Dinner
Mandrake Soup Mandrake Soup
Melonsicle Melonsicle (Reign of Giants icon)
Guacamole Guacamole (Reign of Giants icon)


Some recipes call for less than four specific ingredients, but the Crock Pot always requires four items to cook. In this case, the remaining slots can be filled with "filler" ingredients.

Any item that can be used as an ingredient can be used as filler, though many recipes explicitly prohibit certain foods from being used as filler. For example, Dragonpie Dragonpie requires only one Dragon Fruit Dragon Fruit, but cannot have any Meats Meat as filler.

Unless prohibited, the otherwise-inedible Twigs Twigs can be used as a filler. This is commonly considered the "most efficient" filler. Despite being edible, Seeds Seeds (and Toasted Seeds Toasted Seeds) cannot be used as filler.

Monster Food

If too much Monster Food is used as ingredients (including Filler), the recipe will produce Monster Lasagna Monster Lasagna, unless Twigs have been added.

The following is considered Monster Food:

Monster Meat Monster Meat (Raw or Cooked Monster Meat Cooked)
Monster Jerky Monster Jerky
Durian Durian (Raw or Extra Smelly Durian Cooked)

Food values

Crock Pot Foods

See also: Food

Food value can be defined as a food's usefulness, potency, or strength in regards to how well it can fulfill a particular recipe.

Meat value

Different Meats have different Meat values:

Meat value = 0.5 : Morsel Cooked Morsel Drumstick Fried Drumstick Frog Legs Cooked Frog Legs Small Jerky Fish Cooked Fish Eel Cooked EelMoleworm
Meat value = 1.0 : Meat Cooked Meat JerkyMonster Meat Cooked Monster Meat  Monster Jerky

As seen above, the following examples all hold true:

(1) Cooked Meat Cooked Meat has a Meat value of 1.0.
(1) Meat Meat + (1) Drumstick Drumstick has a total Meat value of 1.5.
(1) Morsel Morsel + (1) Morsel Morsel + (1) Morsel Morsel has a total Meat value of 1.5.
(2) Morsel Morsels are equal to the Meat value of (1) normal piece of Meat Meat (Meat value = 1.0).

The term "meatiness" is sometimes used to describe Meat value. Hence, the total meatiness of ingredients added, is the sum of individual Meat values.

If Honey Ham Honey Ham requires a Meat value greater than (>) or equal to 2.0, then (2) Meat Meats can be used, or (1) Meat Meat and (2) Drumstick Drumsticks could be used, but not (1) Meat Meat and (1) Drumstick Drumstick.

Fruit value

Fruit value = 0.5 : Berries Roasted Berries
Fruit value = 1.0 : Pomegranate Sliced Pomegranate Durian Extra Smelly Durian Dragon Fruit Prepared Dragon FruitCave BananaCooked Cave Banana Watermelon Grilled Watermelon

Berries only count as half a Fruit (Fruit value of 0.5). Recipes requiring Fruits will require at least 2 Berries to fulfill the requirement. Note, that Durian also counts as Monster Food as well as 1 fruit.

Vegetable value

Vegetable value = 0.5 : Red Cap Cooked Red Cap Green Cap Cooked Green Cap Blue Cap Cooked Blue Cap
Vegetable value = 1.0 : Carrot Roasted Carrot Corn Popcorn Pumpkin Hot Pumpkin Eggplant Braised Eggplant Lichen Cactus Flesh Cooked Cactus Flesh Cactus Flower

Egg value

Egg value = 1.0 : Egg Cooked Egg
Egg value = 4.0 :  Tallbird EggFried Tallbird Egg

Reign of Giants icon Dairy Product value

Dairy Product value = 1.0 : Electric Milk Butter


Also known as "importance", the Priority rating decides the result of a particular cooking session based on the ingredients used. The recipe with the highest rating will always be chosen. If there are several recipes with the same importance, a random recipe will be chosen. Some recipes have importance of 0 or below, which means they will never be chosen over other recipes. Such as, Wet Goop, which is always a valid result, but never chosen over anything else due to having -2 importance. The only exception is 0 importance recipes Fist Full of Jam, Fruit Medley and Ratatouille, which appear to always get chosen in that order.

Each recipe requires certain items to be present, for example Meatballs requires at least 1 piece of Meat. Some recipes may also have hidden exclusions, for example Dragonpie excludes Meats.

The Crock Pot always requires 4 food items to begin cooking, however some recipe requirements can be fulfilled with less than 4 items. In such recipes, the remaining slots can be filled by any cookable item that doesn't affect the original recipe or produce a different recipe. For example, Meatballs requires a Meat value between 0.5-2.5 (a Meat value of 3.0 or higher will make Meaty Stew); if 1 Morsel is added, then the remaining three slots are considered "Filler", so adding 3 more Morsels, or 3 Berries, or 3 Butter would be acceptable. However, adding Twigs will result in Kabobs, as they are a higher Priority than the Meatballs.

If there is more than one matching recipe for given ingredients the game will pick one with the highest "Priority". If there is more than one recipe with highest priority the game will pick at random.
E.g.: (1) Monster Meat Monster Meat + (1) Monster Meat Monster Meat + (1) Egg Egg + (1) Egg Egg has a chance to produce Bacon and Eggs Bacon and Eggs or Monster Lasagna Monster Lasagna.

Here is a final example; adding (1) Fish, (1) Frog Legs, (1) Corn, and (1) Twigs to the Crock Pot fulfills the requirements of four (4) different Crock Pot meals. Only one (1) Crock Pot meal can be made, and its determined by the meal with the highest Priority (see Table below).

Outcome Priority Requirements*
Fishsticks +10 Fishes×1 Twigs×1
Fish Tacos +10 Fishes×1 Corns×1
Kabobs +5 Meats×0.5 Twigs×1
Froggle Bunwich +1 Frog Leg×1 Vegetables×0.5
*All Food values are shown with decimal points.

The result is a tie between Fishsticks and Fish Tacos, both with a Priority of +10, which means the final result will be Fishsticks 50% of the time and Fish Tacos 50% of the time.

Reign of Giants icon Reign of Giants

In the Reign of Giants DLC, items left in the Crock Pot will spoil (quicker if left in the rain). Some existing recipes gain the ability to warm or cool the player and new recipes have been added which can lower or raise the player's temperature. The Crock Pot itself also generates heat when cooking, which can possibly Overheat the player during Summer.

Placeholder Trivia

  • The light emitted by an active Crock Pot is enough to keep Charlie away.
  • Some Crock Pot dishes give fewer Hunger / Health points than the sum of their components.
For example, it's better to eat four Roasted Carrot Roasted Carrots (+12 HealthMeter / +50 Hunger),
versus using them to make Ratatouille Ratatouille (+3 HealthMeter / +25 Hunger).
However, most Crock Pot recipes restore 5 Sanity, which may be desirable.

Mosquito Bugs

  • In the Reign of Giants DLC, sometimes meals left unharvested on the Crock Pot will turn into Rot quicker than they should.
