Given the amount of time they spend on kitchen counters, it's no surprise that KitchenAid stand mixers are seen as more than just an appliance. Available in dozens of different colors and finishes, the KitchenAid is also a décor piece.

If you're thinking about buy one for yourself or gifting one, the color options can feel a bit overwhelming. If only we could peek into everybody's kitchen for inspiration!

Fortunately, KitchenAid is sharing data on its most popular stand mixer colors just in time for the holidays.

According to company's survey of over 5,000 stand mixer households, the most popular color is the Blue Velvet, a favorite in a whopping 18 states.

Aqua Sky and Kyoto Glow rank the second and third most popular color in the U.S., respectively, while 10 states prefer the smoothing shade Aqua Sky. KitchenAid's 2020 color of the year, Kyoto Glow, took the top spot in eight states.

A couple states had a hard time choosing a favorite. Maryland bakers were equally torn between Kyoto Glow and Blue Velvet for most popular color, while Nebraska tied between Blue Velvet and Copper Pearl.

Texas is one of just three states that prefer Matte Dried Rose, while Florida stands as the only state with a penchant for Contour Silver.

The survey also asked respondents for their favorite holiday baking project, to which the majority of Southern states answered with apple pie.
