Just Enough Tooltips Mod is an exceedingly useful mod in Minecraft and also considered as a gift for those interesting in food and cooking which is an addon for JEI. This mod supports user to quickly find out recipes for items and blocks. Here are the critical features of this mod:

  • Allow users to view recipes and use for blocks in the world by showing it directly below your crosshair.
  • Watch the recipes and uses for any item in a GUI as a tooltip
  • Finding the recipe in JEI to view it in-game


Note: All keys are re-configurable. The position that JustEnoughTooltips draws at is also completely configurable.

Left Alt – Show the recipe or use for the current block or item. In-game, this will be either the item you are holding, or the block you are looking at if your hand is empty or you are sneaking. If in a GUI, this will be the item directly under your cursor.

Z – Switch between uses and recipes for the current block or item.

X – Cycle recipe categories. In vanilla, these include crafting, smelting, brewing, and more. If you have other mods that add JEI support, such as Thaumcraft, their various crafting mechanics will also appear. For instance, Thaumcraft’s infusion and crucible crafting appear.

F – Attempt to fill the recipe into the current GUI. You must be viewing a recipe with the show recipe key for this to do anything. This acts in the same way as the fill button in JEI.

Pressing the recipe button for JEI will open the recipe you are currently viewing in JEI’s GUI.
