What can we do with Hoppers in 0.14.0 Update?
Hoppers are mainly used as a way of moving items from one container to another, and catch any item entities that fall on it.
Hoppers interact in different ways with different containers:
The player can kill mobs on top of a Hopper and all the drops with fall into the Hopper.
Any Hopper above or next to a Chest will push an item from its own inventory into the Chest. If the Chest is above the Hopper, the item will drop from the chest into the Hopper.
A Hopper attached above a Furnace will drop the ingredient for the Furnace. A Hopper next to a Furnace drop fuel. A Hopper below a Furnace will collect the output.
A Hopper above a Brewing Stand will only fill the top ingredient slot and will only push potion ingredients into that slot. A Hopper to the side of a brewing stand will only push Water Bottles and potions into the bottom three bottle slots, and Hoppers below the stand will collect any resultant potions.
A Hopper above a Dispenser will fill it. The Hoppers below Dispensers will remove items from them.
Or you can drop something into the Hopper manually.
