How to use a Dispenser?

A Dispenser can be activated from any kind of Redstone Pulse. That includes Buttons, Pressure Plates, Levers, Redstone Blocks, & other Redstone Pulse Sources. When a Dispenser receives a Redstone Pulse it will dispense a single Item at random from one of its 9 inventory slots. It requires a minimum of 1 Redstone Tick Pulse or it will lock up and not work. The Dispenser in Minecraft has some other uses like dispensing Water or Lava if their respective Buckets is in the Dispenser. It will also pick them back up when it receives a Redstone Pulse.

A Dispenser in Minecraft can also activate a Nether Portal if it has a Flint & Steel in it. Be mindful as every time it does that it will reduce the Durability of the Flint & Steel. Dispensers will launch Projectile items like Arrows, Potions, Snowballs, Eggs, etc. It can also auto equip attachments to animals like Saddles & Armor to all ridable Mobs and Llamas. Boats will be dispensed as Entities if faced in the direction which is above Water. You can equip Armor onto Players & Mobs with an empty Inventory Slot by the Dispenser.

If any of the items do not fall in these categories then they will be dispensed as an Item by the Dispenser in Minecraft. This was all about the Dispenser in Minecraft and how to make it. Hopefully, this guide has helped you. You can also check our guides on Best Food Source in Minecraft.
