The Alchemy Engine is the tier 2 Science station. It requires a Science Machine to prototype for all characters except Wickerbottom, and costs 4 Boards, 2 Cut Stones, and 6 Gold Nuggets to craft. Prototyping an Item using the Alchemy Engine will increase Sanity by 15.

In the Reign of Giants, Shipwrecked, and Hamlet DLCs, as well as Don't Starve Together, the 6 Gold Nuggets in the crafting recipe are replaced by 2 Electrical Doodads.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, the Alchemy Engine can be flooded.

  • The Alchemy Engine is able to unlock Tier 1 items without the need for a nearby Science Machine, so it may be beneficial to break down the Science Machine for resources after building it.
  • Since Wickerbottom has Tier 2 items unlocked with the Science Machine, this machine is only necessary for crafting her book On Tentacles.
