More of this: Protecting the base with a nonstick liner.
Less of that: Dismantling the unit every time you clean it or going through wads and wads of tinfoil.
A nonstick liner made for a full-size oven can be trimmed to accommodate its little cousin.

Toss the liner in the dishwasher for a deeper cleaning (Chef's Planet nonstick reversible oven liner, $20, bedbathandbeyond.com).
