There's nothing like the thrill of choosing a new stand mixer in a vibrant shade of hot pink or classic cherry red. Whether you're selection your very first stand mixer for your wedding registry or upgrading an old model you've had for years, home bakers agree that it's one of the trustiest tools to have in the kitchen. Just in time for holiday baking, KitchenAid conducted a survey on the most popular stand mixer colors in each state. The home appliance brand polled 5,000 Americans (100 from each state) in October 2020 and found that a few bright hues consistently topped the list.

Blue Velvet took the top prize in 18 states including much of New England and the Tri-State area, as well as North and South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico, Montana, and Washington. The matte sky blue has a slight shimmer and looks stunning in any kitchen.

Southerners are particularly fond of Aqua Sky—Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma all chose this pretty shade that will transport you to the tropics. Residents of Alaska and Hawaii, plus West Virginia and Kentucky, are also a fan of having an Aqua Sky mixer brighten up their kitchen.

Seven states—Nevada, Utah, North Dakota and South Dakota, Michigan, Ohio, and Virginia—were fans of Kyoto Glow, a vibrant green-yellow shade that was KitchenAid's Color of the Year in 2020.

Other colors that topped the list included Empire Red (Idaho's favorite stand mixer color), Black Matte (popular in Iowa and Delaware), Pistachio, Matte Dried Rose (the top choice among residents in California, Arizona, and Texas), Contour Silver, and Copper Pearl (Vermont's pick).

Of course, KitchenAid couldn't resist also polling people on their favorite baked goods during the holiday season. 21 states chose Apple Pie while ten chose Pumpkin Pie as their favorite holiday desserts. Perhaps the most surprising statistic was that more states preferred flaky, sweet baklava to classic chocolate chip cookies.
