We had the same problem finding this item. Ours did not die but the wife wanted another one because she likes it so well. We did find one on E-Bay but it was a "RAK" brand and identical to the "Kitchenetics" that she has. Now her aunt wants one and we are unable to locate either brand. If you have found any let us know. She can't believe there are not avaiable because they work so well.
