Default cleaning a gas cooktop

hi all, my wife is considering buying another electric stove because she thinks the gas stove cooktops are more difficult to clean. right now with our flat surface electric stove, all she has to is wipe it like she would a countertop.
but with gas ones, she has to remove the grates and clean them, and she has to clean underneath the grates. how does everyone find the cleaning of a gas stove?

It's pretty easy to clean, I don't find it takes more time to clean. And even if it does, it's no big deal

I find ceran top stoves HORRIBLE for cleaning. Burnt-on crud is impossible to clean, and it's never ever 100% clean.

Gas stoves are simple. Just remove the grates and wipe.
I hated cleaning the ceramic one! Scraping with the razor blade to get the burnt stuff off. Yuck!

the painted/porcelain coated ones were harder to clean than the cast iron looking ones, but neither was especially difficult to clean.
