The moisture content of an object is determined by placing the object in a field produced by a microwave applicator and measuring the dielectric properties of the applicator. The measured properties are used to derive the moisture content from known dielectric properties for the applicator without the object present, and from known moisture/dielectric properties for the specific material of the object.
