Zassenhaus is sold by specialty vendors like sweetmarias.com in the $60 and up range -- or you can hunt one up at garage sales or online auction for considerably less. My Zas, which is probably older than myself, gives character to my kitchen. Long after my current electronic gizmos break down, it will still be there.
