Abstract

IN view of the interest now being taken in high-frequency heating, as a logical development of medical diathermy, successful experiments have been made in the rapid production of crustless bread, cakes and light pastries. This technique is particularly suitable for the last two named purposes. The power used was 650 watts, and the frequency 50 × 106 c.p.s. Owing to the War, further developments have not been possible.
