Tappan appliances and related parts can be purchased online through home goods and appliance stores such as Abt and Sears, as well as from home-improvement stores such as Lowe's. Online auction sites such as eBay also feature listings for both vintage and current models of Tappan appliances.
The Abt website features a section exclusively dedicated to Tappan stoves and cooktops. Users can navigate through the available lines to find listings for specific models, such as gas ranges. Search results can be sorted by several factors, including general options such as price range, color and availability, as well as oven-specific options such as width, cooking type and capacity. Each listing contains a picture of the unit, a description of its available features and its customer rating. Ratings are comprised of a quantitative satisfaction and a written account of the users experience with the item.
