The Iron Furnace is faster and 25% more fuel efficient than a vanilla Furnace. It can smelt 10 items per piece of Coal compared to only 8 in a vanilla Furnace.
Two possible recipes are available. Using a stone furnace reduces the cost by 3 Iron Ingots.
Each operation costs 160 units of heat at a speed of 20 units per second, resulting in 8 seconds per smelting operation.
