Electric stove tops are generally easier to clean than gas stove tops. Electric stoves are commonly available with glass or ceramic tops, which enable easy cleanup from most messes.
Electric stoves with glass or ceramic tops are completely smooth, with no crevices or areas for spills to get into. New electric stoves often feature smooth tops, while many older electric stoves feature harder-to-clean coil tops.
Though not as easy to clean as a solid top electric stove, gas stoves with sealed burners are easier to clean than those with open burners. The sealed burner keeps food from getting into the stove.
