Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1850641A1] The method involves starting up of a microwave generator with a predefined power, and measuring an absolute humidity in a cavity of a microwave oven. The absolute humidity is compared with pre-recorded absolute humidity values. An evolution curve is identified among an assembly of evolution curves pre-recorded in the time of the absolute humidity. The microwave generator is shutdown, when the measured absolute humidity reaches a threshold value associated to the identified evolution curve and corresponding to a preset temperature attained by a drink e.g. coffee. An independent claim is also included for a microwave oven comprising a cavity.
