How to Get the Zonai Portable Pot in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
The Zonai Portable Pot is one of the fourteen Zonai Devices Link can obtain in Tears of the Kingdom. Zonai Devices are a new type of item added in Tears of the Kingdom that are pieces of ancient technology Link can use to build various vehicles and contraptions to assist in his adventure. However, rather than being used for construction, the Zonai Portable Pot instead has a sole function: cooking on the go.
Link can obtain a Zonai Portable Pot by using a Zonai Device Dispenser, large gachapon-style machines found throughout Hyrule. These machines allow Link to exchange Zonai Charges, obtained by defeating Constructs and through exploration, for a random assortment of Zonai Devices. The Zonai Portable Pot is one of the possible devices that Link may receive.
How to Use and Cook with Zonai Portable Pot in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
To use the Zonai Portable Pot, navigate to the Zonai Devices tab in Link’s inventory and locate this Zonai device. Select it and choose “Take out Device,” then exit the inventory screen. The Zonai Portable Pot will be placed in front of Link, and he can pick it up to move it if necessary.
To cook with the Zonai Portable Pot, all the player needs to do is approach it, insert the ingredients, and they will receive a cooked dish, just like with any other cooking pot or fire.
However, it’s crucial to keep in mind that the pot is single-use only, meaning players might want to save it for emergency situations, like cooking up a resistance food when needed the most, like to survive the cold to enter the Gutanbac Shrine.
