The cheapest way would be to just fix yours. That's what I did 2 weeks ago. Cost me less than $10 for new bolts.

My plate broke off the left hand side and bent the right bracket 90 degrees

Mine did the same, you can drill out the broke out the broke off screws and retap the holes. They are 5/16. The bracket can be put in a vice and bent back straight. Put you some new stainless screws in and your good to go. I do plan on changing the stainless screws out every year now as a preventive maintenance. Do a search on here. It is a pretty common occurrance and many people do the same as I did. The crew is awesome. Without them, I probably would have just trashed mine and bought a new one. If you don't have the tools to tap and equipment to get it bent back, you can take it to a local machine shop and they will probably fix you up for less than $100.
