The Cauldron is used in a variety of methods to prepare food for consumption (visit Cooking for detailed instructions). Like the Cooking Pot it takes up 12 inventory slots while at the same time providing 12 inventory slots of its own even when full of drinkable water. This allows you to carry it without actually giving up any inventory space. In every aspect except weight, capacity and looks the Cauldron and Cooking Pot are exactly the same. The Cauldron was implemented in the DayZ 1.12 update for the Walpurgis Event that spanned between April 29, 2021, and May 16, 2021.

Note: Items that are added to the Cauldron inventory while the Cooking Pot is also filled with water, will become drenched.

Durability[ | ]

With the 1.17 update came the addition of durability to the Cauldron, the Cooking Pot, the Frying Pan and the 2 stands the Campfire Tripod, and the Cooking Stand. All use durability at a rate of 0.0625 per second when over any kind of fire wither it be a fireplace or gas stove.

This means with a durability of 200 the Cauldron will go from Pristine to ruined when used over a flame for a total 53 Minutes, and 20 Seconds.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Before 1.18 all cookware durability use was double of what it is now making cookware like the Cauldron last only 26 minutes, and 40 seconds from Pristine to Ruined.
