I have heard this but I cannot confirm it. Does anyone know?

It is true, you can see it mentioned the Dev Docs too if you want extra confirmation :

To create an uncacheable page, mark any block on that page as uncacheable in the layout using cacheable="false".

You can see that on this page.

    @LM_Fielding Unless you want to purposefully stop the whole page from being cached then yeah I would avoid. If you need to prevent one block from being cached take a look at hole punching methods.

  • I'm aware of hole punching methods, but thank you for the great tip! That is the reason I'm asking. Mar 8, 2017 at 12:31

Yes it does. Full page cache will not be used on that page. But block cache and the rest works.

Block with Cachable=false not rendered on product view page

    Of note, FPC is often responsible for the majority of caching performance gains, so thinking 'oh I'm just disabling one cache out of like 12' is usually a bad idea. Feb 28, 2019 at 21:58
