The two glass carboys that came with my original MW kit just gather dust. It's buckets all the way......

Total amount of time actually doing something, maybe 5 minutes...
Actually, that's over 24 hours.

I meant of actually doing something, like physically messing with it...a few minutes to fill it, a few minutes to shake it...

I dont count sitting it out overnight as time spent cleaning

I'm using the carboys mainly because I like to watch

You don't have to expose the wort to watch it. I guess it is inevitable that one will get dropped ....
