Food and Drink Assessment[edit]

I rated class as "start" as the article has more information than a mere stub, but doesn't have any references or notes. Importance qualifies as low. VirginiaProp 14:07, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Image of Thüringer Klöße[edit]

The second image shows some unusually white dumplings. The same image is used at the German Wikipedia, but I'd like to remove it, because I think, they don't look really like they should. If no one disagrees, I will remove it in two weeks. Toscho 22:06, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

That picture appears to suffer from either over exposure or a too bright flash (my guess is on the second as the exposure is only 1/50). I uploaded a new version to give the image a less of a washed out look, lets see how it goes over. Gh5046 (talk) 19:51, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Should the plural or singular name be used for the article?[edit]

I would imagine the article should be titled Klöß (apparently the singular form), instead of the plural form. If no one disagrees, I will rename this article and update its wording. Gh5046 (talk) 19:57, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

singular form of Klöße is Kloß, not Klöß. And it is usually used in the plural form, as noone ever orders a sigle Kloß to their roast... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.185.77.106 (talk) 17:48, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

General problem[edit]

The article is containing great mistakes. The general problem, is that is mixes up Klöße and Knödel, which are different things. Somebody speaking german should take a peek in german wikipedia and copy from there. As it is now, the article is nothing but a mess... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.185.77.106 (talk) 17:51, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Since you apparently know Deutsch to some degree, can you update it? Gh5046 (talk) 18:45, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
The german article starts by stating that they're also known as knödel. --62.251.121.48 (talk) 17:20, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
The problem is that there is no standard terminology in Germany. As a native German speaker from the district of Swabia in Bavaria, I almost exclusively use the word "Knödel" only, but e. g. people from Franconia, where I'm currently living, predominantly use the term "Kloß", at least for their local variants. From my experience, the use of "Kloß/Klöße" vs. "Knödel" heavily depends on the speaker's point of view and the usage of the words in his or her family / hometown. For example, a friend of mine calls Franconian style Knödel "Klöße" but uses "Knödel" to refer to Semmelknödel, which are not a part of traditional Franconian cuisine. I hope this helps to clear things up a bit! LadyLanquist (talk) 16:44, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

The result of the proposal was no evidence provided to support move. JPG-GR (talk) 03:14, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

KlößeKnödel — As this is a southern German dish, seems like the Bavarian and Austrian name is better. — 70.51.8.59 (talk) 04:23, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's naming conventions.
  • Comment I've certanly known it as Knoedel, but that might be more from the yiddish and the germans I know than anything else? Can the nominator provide any evidence either way? Narson (talk) 21:49, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

*No problem'[edit]

I think the article is not a mess any more

The Esset[edit]

It's been a while, but I did take four years of German, and I was under the impression that ß is no longer used as a character. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.47.148.150 (talk) 17:30, 23 January 2009 (UTC) Warrington (talk) 15:33, 13 September 2008 (UTC)


No, it's still in use, see the German_spelling_reform_of_1996.

Move again[edit]

To repeat the request, I'd say it's about time to move the article to Knödel. It is not just the most common name in the great German language dumpling regions, such as Austria and Southern Germany, but I've noticed the usage of Knödel also in Northern Germany, such as in Berlin. Arguments, anyone? Catgut (talk) 02:03, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

In absence of any arguments or comments, I'll move the article within 24 hours. Catgut (talk) 21:53, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Done. In case of any further arguments or comments, please discuss here on the talk page, thanks. Catgut (talk) 00:15, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
