Grill
The Kenwood K30CSS14 has a grill, whereas the Samsung MS23H3125AK does not.

'Grill' denotes whether the microwave has a grill function on not.

A grill allows for high-power cooking of everything from sausages to cheese toasties - it's the best thing for getting a nice crisp topping on pies and bakes as well.
