Revert a product back to its ingredients. Designed for recycling unused items.


Very often, you have some obsolete items (like burner inserters, small electric poles, iron chests, burner mining drills, stone furnaces) staying in your storage forever. Now there is a good way to recycle them!
With this mod, you can revert them back to their ingredients, make them into good use for your factory!

To uncraft an item, first click it as the cursor stack, then click the hotkey (default: U). One item from the cursor stack will be uncrafted, with ingredients put to inventory.
You can also uncraft the whole stack by shift-clicking the hotkey (default: SHIFT-U).
Control-clicking the hotkey (default: CTRL-U) will uncraft every of the same item in the inventory as the cursor stack into its ingredients.

The hotkey is customizable in "Options" → "Controls" → "Mods" tab.


Ingredients of fluid type are discarded, since the inventory does not support existence of fluid without the (free) barrel.

This mod tries to find a recipe using the name of the item, so some vanilla recipes (like uranium-processing, kovarex-enrichment-process) are non-uncraftable.
Item having multiple possible recipes (like solid fuel has 3 recipes), will probably be non-uncraftable, if none of the recipes use the same name as the item.

Items crafted by recipe with multiple products (like U-235, U-238 by Kovarex enrichment process) are skipped.

"Uncraft all" does not apply to items with equipment grids, switching to "uncraft stack/one" automatically. This is to avoid accidental uncrafting of important gear. Equipment within grids are now detected and taken out before uncrafting, since version 0.16.2.

Mods Compatibility

Most of the item from other mods should work, but there is no guarantee. It depends on how modders set the recipes, if they have matching item and recipes names.

If you want any specific item (either vanilla or modded) supported, you can request in the Discussion section.


This mod does not add anything to save file. This mod should be safe to be disabled/uninstalled at any time.
