I have the same problem. Smashed mine, amazon want £15 for a new one. At present just using old dinner plate which seems to work as well.
It's still yard-sale season, get out and look for one. They pop up on every block around here.

I agree with steve - but part of the price of a new glass tray is the lumps underneath that engage with the motor-drive, without this it won't turn that well / at all.
If your son is taking this to college, he might do as well just putting large dinner plates in there (with the food on).

Make sure it has no metallic glazes on it - a quick test run in an oven will tell you. Run it for 20 seconds and remove it, if its got warm, it isn't suitable.
