Question on gas range colors, i.e. "Black Stainless" and "Slate"

Trying to do as much shopping from home before venturing out, I am confused by options for Stainless Steel, Black Stainless Steel, Slate, Stainless steel look, and Black stainless.

I want the easiest to clean that will go with my maybe-stainless refrigerator and dishwasher. I have no idea if they are real stainless or not. The refrigerator is easier to clean than the dishwasher. Our current range is mostly black with some "stainless-maybe" trim. I HATE the black cooktop as it constantly looks dirty. But it kinda seems that whatever I choose of the above options, it's still going to have a black top.

I'm most curious about what "Slate" could be. Is it just gray paint as opposed to a white stove?

Here's the current range.
