A mob spawner is a place where you spawn mobs
Answer from: ILikeTrains :)
Best time to destroy it? Playing on Peaceful. Play on Peaceful and destroy the mob spawners, so you get less hassle on harder levels. Also, loot the chests there. I started a new game, found a mob spawner almost immediately in a cave and looted the chests, where I got two saddles, iron ingots, redstone, bread, a bucket of lava and more! Extremely useful.

Listen, Do not destroy it !!! While on peaceful mode, make a mob grinder (search up minecraft mob grinder) so then u can get loads of drops + (once enchanting is released) u can use it to get xp to enchant.

A mob spawner displays a mob and the block is basicly a cage so the mob in the cage/basket will spawn if you are in within 16 blocks,the best time to use a spawner is in peaceful mode so you can make a trap.So don't break it use : )
