Do you prefer a smooth cookware interior or does it not matter?

In a recent thread, I was doing a smigen more than complaining about the interior finish of a particular cookware piece I acquired. I don't really care about whether the finish is high mirror polished or matte polished. I do care whether the interior surface is relatively smooth with minimal graining/toothiness to it.

In a pan I cooked in yesterday, there was subtle graining (whereas the other pan in question I would classify as fairly raw'ish graining). And for cleaning purposes, I was able to get the pan clean - but the oil remained in the graining which needs further ~agressive~ options to clean it out.

In the same BRANDED pan, different series, as a comparison , I realized I'm able to get the same skillet clean with the same cleaning medium and method that I could not get clean in above. I attribute it to the smooth sidewalls where things don't get trapped in..

Anyhow, just blurbing outloud. Do you care if your interiors are smooth?
