How to Make Steel in Little Alchemy 2

Today, we have got an interesting topic for Little Alchemy 2 players. As the game features the Steel element, this guide focuses on how you can obtain it. Likewise, we will also be looking at all the elements you can create using Steel.

Before we dive into the main process of obtaining Steel, let’s see what steel actually is. Above all, it is always good to know what you are playing with.

That is to say, steel is basically an alloy. Moreover, an alloy is a mixture of metal with metal or any other element done to obtain a certain advantage. For example, steel is made by fusing iron with a little amount of carbon to improve its strength and fracture resistance.

Certainly, you have heard the phrase “Man of Steel”. And, the sole reason the phrase uses steel instead of any other element is that it’s the strongest alloy currently available. Meanwhile, many other elements are obtained with steel to obtain new characteristics.

For instance, an additional amount of chromium can be added to steels to make them stainless. Also, steels have a low cost which makes them the most used element in buildings, infrastructure, tools, etc.

Nevertheless, Little Alchemy 2 replicates the steel from the real world using the Steel element. And, the element can be obtained in the same way it’s created in real life.

Further, Ash and Metal are the two key components of Steel. So, our first goal is to obtain the two elements.

Finally, let’s not waste more time and dive into the manufacturing of steel, shall we?

Step 1: Create Ash

Before creating the Ash element, what we must know is the main chemical component of ash is carbon. Also, depending on what is burned, ash can contain different chemical components.

As we talked about before, steel is manufactured by mixing a small amount of carbon with iron. Similarly, Little Alchemy 2 requires the Ash element as the key ingredient of Steel. And before we can obtain Ash, we will surely need to burn something right?

Hence, we will first create the Plant element and combine it with Fire to obtain Ash as shown below:

  • Water + Water = Puddle
  • Puddle + Water = Pond
  • Pond + Water = Lake
  • Lake + Water = Sea
  • Sea + Earth = Primordial Soup
  • Fire + Fire = Energy
  • Energy + Primordial Soup = Life
  • Earth + Life = Soil
  • Earth + Earth = Land
  • Earth + Land = Continent
  • Continent + Continent = Planet
  • Air + Planet = Atmosphere
  • Atmosphere + Water = Cloud
  • Cloud + Water = Rain
  • Rain + Soil = Plant
  • Plant + Fire = Ash

Whew, did the above process tire you? Oh, it didn’t? Moreover, it seems like you are just made for adventures! But now, the next step is going to be really simple so I’m pretty sure you won’t even break a sweat.

Step 2: Create Metal

Now that we have the required amount of carbon to mix with iron, we will need the second key ingredient of Steel. That is, we will require Metal so that we can apply Ash on it and form Steel.

In addition, this guide does contain some fundamental elements of Little Alchemy 2. So, this guide could prove more useful than just obtaining the Steel element.

Nonetheless, the following steps will help you obtain the Metal element:

  • Fire + Earth = Lava
  • Lava + Air = Stone
  • Stone + Fire = Metal

Hey, that’s some serious dedication you got there! Likewise, we hope you keep this energy going as we are just one step away from obtaining Steel.

Step 3: Create Steel

Nevertheless, one fact about creating steel from iron is that the iron smelted from its ore already contains carbon. However, the amount of carbon the iron contains is more than desirable. Hence, it is first reprocessed to reduce the carbon to the correct amount.

Meanwhile, you can also add different elements to give the steel newer characteristics. Further, steel has been used by humans for over 4000 years.

Now, let’s not sway from our path more and obtain Steel as shown below:

  • Ash + Metal = Steel

Give yourself a big pat! You successfully manufactured steel and obtained the Steel element. However, your journey hasn’t come to an end and I hope you are prepared for the next step.

Elements You Can Create Using Steel

As we know by now, humans have used steel since almost 1800 B.C. That means they have proven their usefulness. And, steel’s characteristics make them more useful than any other metal or alloy.

For example, you can even find steel being used in mass quantity in the house you are living in. And, Little Alchemy 2 replicates the same usages of steel by letting us obtain dozens of new elements using Steel.

Likewise, the elements you can create using Steel are as follows:

  • Steel + Air = Rust
  • Steel + Alchemist = Gold
  • Steel + Atmosphere = Rocket
  • Steel + Bat = Airplane
  • Steel + Bicycle = Motorcycle
  • Steel + Bird = Airplane
  • Steel + Blade = Sword
  • Steel + Bow = Gun
  • Steel + Bullet = Gun
  • Steel + Butter = Gold
  • Steel + Campfire = BBQ
  • Steel + Car = Tank
  • Steel + Carbon Dioxide = Fire Extonguisher
  • Steel + Cheese = Mousetrap
  • Steel + Cold = Fridge
  • Steel + Crow = Airplane
  • Steel + Deity = Vulcan
  • Steel + Diamond = Ring
  • Steel + Duck = Airplane
  • Steel + Eagle = Airplane
  • Steel + Earth = Plow
  • Steel + Electricity = Wire
  • Steel + Explosion = Grenade


  • Steel + Fabric = Armor
  • Steel + Field = Plow
  • Steel + Fox = Cage
  • Steel + Glass = Glasses + Mirror
  • Steel + Gold = Safe
  • Steel + Golem = Robot
  • Steel + Gunpowder = Bullet
  • Steel + Hammer = Bell
  • Steel + Hay = Pitchfork
  • Steel + Horse = Horseshoe
  • Steel + Human = Tool
  • Steel + Hummingbird = Airplane
  • Steel + Ice = Fridge
  • Steel + Letter = Mailbox


  • Steel + Life = Robot
  • Steel + Light Bulb = Lamp
  • Steel + Light = Gold + Spotlight
  • Steel + Lightning = Electricity
  • Steel + Lion = Cage
  • Steel + Love = Ring
  • Steel + Mailman = Mailbox
  • Steel + Money = Safe
  • Steel + Motion = Wheel
  • Steel + Owl = Airplane
  • Steel + Oxygen = Rust
  • Steel + Pigeon = Airplane
  • Steel + Pottery = Cauldron
  • Steel + Rainbow = Gold
  • Steel + River = Bridge
  • Steel + Rock = Blade
  • Steel + Rope = Chain + Wire
  • Steel + Sand = Gold
  • Steel + Seagull = Airplane
  • Steel + Sound = Bell
  • Steel + Space = Spaceship
  • Steel + Star = Shuriken
  • Steel + Steam Engine = Train
  • Steel + Stone = Blade
  • Steel + Stream = Bridge
  • Steel + Sun = Gold
  • Steel + Thread = Needle
  • Steel + Tool = Hammer
  • Steel + Vulture = Airplane
  • Steel + Wheel = Car
  • Steel + Wire = Chain
  • Steel + Witch = Cauldron
  • Steel + Wolf = Cage
  • Steel + Wood = Tool
  • Steel + Wool = Steel Wool

Wooh! That might be the longest list of elements one can obtain using a single element in Little Alchemy 2. Most importantly, these elements will last for you for a while now. And, you can use them to obtain even more elements in the game.


As you can see, the Steel element is one of the fundamental elements in Little Alchemy 2. Because you can create so many new elements using it. Moreover, that just means you now have more reasons to explore and keep going.

Above all, Little Alchemy 2 is a boundless game where there are many secrets that lie deep in its enormous sea. In other words, what you saw here was just the trailer of the game.

In conclusion, there’s still so much out there for you to explore. And, we don’t want you to stop here. Instead, use all those new elements you obtained using Steel to obtain even newer elements.

Meanwhile, we will always cheer for you and have your back just in case you get lost.
