Actually, I find that if you clean the bowl almost immediately after a session while it's still slightly warm, it's very easy to clean. Just a simple kitchen scrubby sponge and warm water. When you let it cool is when it is a pain to clean.
I love my Vortex, but I will agree with a few others. It really depends on what you're smoking. I smoke Pharaoh's out of my Vortex, but Waha is in an egyptian clay. It takes experimentation...
