Replacement parts for toasters and toaster ovens can be purchased online at a discounted price through auction sites such as eBay, as well as through online parts retailers such as PartStore.com. Some international appliance parts resellers, such as eSpares, also feature prices and sales for different brands of parts.
Auction sites such as eBay allow users to browse through a wide selection of toaster or toaster oven parts by searching for specific parts in addition to criteria such as price range, shipping options and manufacturer. Each seller on eBay has an associated seller rating based on feedback from past customer experiences. When purchasing from eBay it is important to read a seller's ratings first to avoid any potential issues. For example, if a seller has a history of selling items that do not match the descriptions posted, it is a good idea for buyers to avoid that seller even if he has a listing for a particular part. EBay also features an alert system that allows users to monitor both sellers and custom searches for any new postings.
The eSpares website is operated in the United Kingdom but ships products throughout the world. It can be a useful site to look at if an individual is searching for parts for a European brand of toaster or toaster oven.
