The complementarity experiment reported in Bertet [{\it{et al.}} (2001), {\it{Nature}} {\bf{411}}, 166.] is discussed. The role played by entanglement in reaching the classical limit is pointed out. Dissipative and thermal effects of the cavity are calculated and a simple modification of the experiment is proposed in order to observe the progressive loss of the capacity of quantum erasing''as a manifestation of the classical limit of quantum mechanics.
