Kitchens have various uses depending on the items crafted and placed within:
- A Kitchen Table allows Townsfolk to prepare food for cooking on a stove or Cooking Fire.
- A Kitchen Stove allows the cooking of meats prepared on a Kitchen Table.
- A Cooking Bowl allows the creation of soups and stews, such as Cactus Soup.
- A Butcher Table allows the player to autonomously instruct Townsfolk to butcher livestock for meat and bones.
A Kitchen zone requires at least a 3x3 tiled zone. The above items can be placed inside the zone to unlock further crafting recipes. Having the Kitchen zone above-ground and surrounded by walls will increase the efficiency of the Townsfolk working within.
