Nights have been chilly and I've been getting the urge to see the Oslo in action. Having run it for two seasons already I decided to clean the flue. Before going up on the roof I attached a shop vac to our OAK inlet on the outside of our house and turned it on. I also opened the air control on the stove all the way. I then went up on the roof, removed the cap, and found a healthy flow of air going down the 6" solid stainless liner. I brushed out the flue without inhaling a bit of creosote as I have when cleaning flues before. I replaced the chimney cap then went down to the Oslo, removed the oval top plate, and vacuumed out the creosote that had accumulated at the stove outlet. I set the oval plate back in place (no fasteners needed) and went outside and shut down the shop vac. My wife who had been sitting near the stove the whole time doing some paperwork never saw anything exit the stove during the whole cleaning process. We're enjoying the season's first fire now. I just added one more thing that I like about OAKs to an already long list.
