|“||A basic container for melting snow, boiling water, and cooking food.
The player typically starts the game with one recycled can in the inventory. Additional recycled cans are obtained by the player after consuming a canned good. However, if the player smashes open a can, they will not receive a recycled can. Additionally, recycled cans occasionally spawn in houses with kitchens or in various other locations.
A recycled can will decrease the amount of time required for canned food to cook by 50%, compared to the time needed to cook indirectly near the fire. This time can be decreased by an additional 20% if the player uses a cooking pot instead of a recycled can.
A recycled can will degrade by 10% if its contents are burned or boiled dry. The recycled can will not degrade in any other circumstances.
A recycled can can melt or boil up to 0.5 liters (0.13 gallons) of snow or water at a time. The amount of time required to melt snow per liter does not decrease when using a recycled can, compared to using a cooking pot.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- All fires have the same cooking, boiling, and melting times for food and drink items used with a recycled can. The cooking speed is not dependent on the temperature of the fire.
- Using a recycled can will not decrease the amount of time required to cook canned food, compared to cooking the food in its own can.
- You can only use two recycled cans/cooking pots at a time on most cooking surfaces, but stoves have six slots.
