WITH the popularity of high‐frequency heating growing by leaps and bounds, it is desirable to stop for a moment now and then to take stock of the state of the art. This can best be done by breaking down the broad view and reviewing only a narrow phase at a time. This paper is concerned only with dielectric heating (heating of materials by a varying electric field), and reviews the major limitations that prevent universal application.
