The result of the debate was PAGE MOVED per discussion below. -GTBacchus(talk) 01:32, 15 January 2007 (UTC) Wafer (cooking)Wafer — The primary meaning of "wafer" appears to be the edible type. There are more articles linking to wafer (electronics) than wafer (cooking), but most of the links to wafer concern cooking (or allusions to it). Peter Isotalo 13:01, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Survey - Support votes[edit]

  1. Support. If my understanding is correct, the typically shaped food gave its name to things that ressemble it (in shape, by the two-sided pressing technique that shaped it). Thus for such other meaning, the original tells the etymology of the newer usage (and thus a wrong link passing by the article would not be so terrible, provided a link to newer usage is at the top of the page). It is still the prevailing common usage, outside specific fields and the normal interpretation unless the context clearly shows another usage. — SomeHuman 9 Jan2007 16:38 (UTC)
  2. Support I don't think I've heard of another type of "wafer" unless as a sland term for a skinny boy. 01:53, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
  3. Support The food wafer is the namesake for the electronic wafer, which is referenced almost exclusively within a limited subcommunity of tech folks. --Serge 06:15, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Deleting "Newcastle"[edit]

As the see-also wikilink to Newcastle-upon-Tyne seems irrelevant (I can find no instance of the word "wafer" in that article), I'm deleting it. Cactus Wren (talk) 11:40, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Possible connection?[edit]

Having read this article and that on waffles, it strikes me there is probably a link, etymological and possibly culinary, between the early 'oublies' and the 'Oblea'. Can anyone find any sources for this? I've had a quick search, but unable to find much of use - but I'm new to this! Carty239 (talk) 09:53, 11 September 2012 (UTC)


Merge Pink Wafer into this article... non-controvertial once the subject described there is the same as the one here. Krenakarore TK 21:13, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
