What you should know before you buy a stand mixer

Cooking technology expert Chef Andrew Forlines told CBS Essentials that readers should consider bowl size when buying a stand mixer, noting that the size you get should depend on what you're planning on making. Are you cranking out cupcakes, or do you make loaves of bread? "4.5-quart capacity up to 8 quarts is the standard range," Forlines says.

Forlines says readers should also consider motor power, if they wanted a lifted bowl or a titled-head stand mixer and whatever attachments are available for the stand mixer they're considering. If you're someone who hates cleaning up, it might matter to you whether or not stand mixer parts can go in the dishwasher.
