    The lady wife has broken ours its at least £150 to replace which i think is a bit of a naughty price tbh. Has anyone tried getting a bit of toughened glass cut made to measure ? Got to be worth a punt hasnt it ?

    We had a cup kamakazi out of the cupboard & shatter ours that was a three burner smev 8003 i think was the model number, that cost £69.00. it was from C.A.K tanks.

    £150 sounds a like what model is yours ?

    Many double glazing panels need to be toughened so its common procedure.
    Most glazers will cut and drill it as necessary and then send it for toughening.

    I had the same problem, except that it was a suicidal jar of mayonnaise.

    I got a 530 x 390mm plate of 4mm aluminium alloy, and rounded the corners with a jigsaw and file. Drilled the hinge holes and finger hole and it fits perfectly. Glass and aluminium weigh about the same.

    Got the plate from clickmetal.co.uk for 35 pounds, Maybe others might know of a cheaper place but clickmetal were first-rate for product and service.
