Hello, English learners! Don’t you agree that sometimes, it can be pretty hard to tell whether something is “made of” or “made from”, “made with”, or even “made out from”. As a matter of fact, things couldn’t be more straightforward. Let’s look at the explanation:


We use MADE FROM when we talk about how something is produced. The material it has been made from cannot be seen because it has been changed.

I am a fan of clothes made from natural materials.
Cheese is made from milk.
This cake was made from egg whites.


Something is MADE OF when its material hasn’t been significantly changed. We can still see it in the object.

This shirt is made of cotton.
This ring is made of gold.
That house in the woods is made of logs.


However, when something was changed from one thing into another, we can say that it was MADE OUT OF:

Today, they make fridge parts out of recycled materials.
Can you believe that her bag is made out of plastic bottles?
The plates they were eating from were made out of the finest porcelain.


Finally, we usually use MADE WITH to talk about the ingredients contained in foods and drinks:

The bartender made this cocktail with gin and tonic.
Bread is normally made with flour and water.
Mousaka is made with vegetables and minced meat.

Made of, Made from, Made out of, Made with
Made of, Made from, Made out of, Made with
