    1-2 weeks here. I like the glass clean, so when it gets real dirty, I'll shut it down and clean it. You'll find, though, that in the fall and spring when the stove is shut down and started a lot, the glass will get a lot dirtier faster then when the stove is running steady.

    Received the Powersmith Ash Vac today. Checked the suction before I did anything else and seemed quite good so I put it to the test and cleaned the stove. Only 2 1/2 hours of use, so not much there but it gave me the experience. Pretty easy!

    Suction is good, hose is long enough; there is a crevice tool with a brush attachment and it is pretty quiet. Much less noise than a shop-vac.

    Stay tuned. We'll see if I still like it after the stove's been used steady for a week!
