Just look at the channel the old gasket comes out of and get that size. Be careful with the old gasket as it may be asbestos. so do it outside and wear a mask.

One other note on gasket if it asbestos or not you can treat it as it is and spray the gasket and area with warm soapy water to keep what ever dust is there from going airborne this is keeping the contaminated area nonfryable. ( not likely to go airborne cause it wet and the soap is sticky) even if it not asbestos it probable not the greatest stuff to breath
