The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender is a single-serve blender meant for drinks like smoothies. It has a more modern, sleeker look than otherwise similar blenders from Ninja or NutriBullet, so it's a more budget-friendly alternative to the Beast Health Blender if you prefer that style. It only comes with one jar and resealable lid, unlike a lot of personal blenders, but ZWILLING sells additional jars separately on its website.

Our Verdict

6.5 Multi-Purpose

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Blender is alright for multi-purpose use. Since it's a personal blender, it has a limited capacity and is mainly meant for blending single-serve smoothies and other drinks. It's excellent for processing fibrous ingredients like kale or fruit, and more surprisingly, it's a fantastic choice for small batches of nut butter or hummus. However, its narrow jar makes it sub-par for crushing ice. Some aspects of the design don't feel particularly durable, and its blades aren't dishwasher-safe.

Pros
  • Smoothly blends fibrous ingredients.
  • Makes smooth nut butter.
Cons
  • Somewhat difficult to clean by hand.
  • Blades not dishwasher-safe.
7.8 Smoothies (Single Serving)

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender is good for single-serve smoothies. It's designed for personal smoothies and protein shakes and comes with a drinking lid so you can use the 24oz jar as a travel cup. It does an excellent job processing fibrous ingredients, so recipes with kale or blueberries have a smooth texture. However, some personal blenders make an even silkier blend with tough ingredients. Also, you can only run the blender for 40 seconds at once, so you need a few cycles to make a smoothie.

Pros
  • Smoothly blends fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Blades not dishwasher-safe.
  • Poor for ice crushing.
6.6 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender is adequate for multiple servings of smoothies. The jar's 19oz blending capacity isn't really big enough for multiple servings in one batch, and it's not the fastest personal blender, so it's not the best for making several smoothies in a row. It does an excellent job of processing fibrous ingredients, even at full capacity, meaning it can make well-blended smoothies with kale or blueberries. However, it's not great for crushing ice, and its blades can't go in the dishwasher.

Pros
  • Smoothly blends fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Blades not dishwasher-safe.
  • Poor for ice crushing.
4.0 Ice Crushing

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender isn't good for ice crushing. Ice tends to build up around the sides of the jar, preventing it from completely crushing the ice. However, it can incorporate ice cubes into smoothies or shakes.

Pros
Cons
  • Blades not dishwasher-safe.
  • Poor for ice crushing.
3.3 Soups

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Blender can't hot blend, so it's not meant for making hot soup. If you let any hot ingredients cool down first, it can make a smooth blend with fibrous ingredients like kale and broccoli, which is important for smooth soups and sauces. However, like most personal blenders, its jar is too small to blend more than a cup or two of soup at once.

Pros
  • Smoothly blends fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Blades not dishwasher-safe.
  • Can't hot blend.
6.1 Professional Use

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender is passable for professional use. It's a personal blender, so it's mainly meant for making drinks like smoothies, and it's excellent at processing fibrous elements like leafy greens and fruits. It's also extremely easy to use to make small batches of dips and spreads like nut butter and hummus. However, it's not good for crushing ice. It doesn't feel particularly durable, and since it's a personal blender, it has a small capacity.

Pros
  • Smoothly blends fibrous ingredients.
  • Makes smooth nut butter.
Cons
  • Somewhat difficult to clean by hand.
  • Blades not dishwasher-safe.
  • 6.5 Multi-Purpose
  • 7.8 Smoothies (Single Serving)

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender comes in two colors: 'Silver' or 'Black'. We tested it in Black, and you can see the label for the unit we tested here.

Compared To Other Blenders

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY is a personal blender with a modern-looking design, like the Beast Health Blender. It's particularly easy to use for thicker recipes like nut butter or hummus, especially compared to similarly-priced options like the Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ or the NutriBullet Pro. If you're just planning on using it for smoothies or protein shakes, blenders like the Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO can handle common ingredients like ice and fibrous ingredients more quickly and easily.

For more options, check out the best bullet blenders, the best personal blenders, and the best blenders for smoothies.

Beast Health Blender

The Beast Health Blender is better than the ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender. The Beast is sturdier and has a bigger capacity as well as a better blending performance. It's much better for crushing ice, and it's quieter. However, if you want to use the blending jar as a travel cup, you might find the Beast's jar too wide to easily carry around. The ZWILLING blender's jar is narrower, and you may find the drinking lid's design more convenient.

NutriBullet Pro 900

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is better than the ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender. The NutriBullet is a better smoothie-maker if more than one person at home drinks smoothies because it comes with two blending jars and to-go lids. It can also make a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients. On the other hand, if you want to make thicker recipes like nut butter or hummus, the ZWILLING is easier to use for that.

Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO

The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is better than the ZWILLING ENFINIGY. The Ninja has better overall performance, so it can make silkier smoothies and crushed ice. Its buttons are easier to use than the ZWILLING's control dial. However, the ZWILLING is much quieter and has a sleeker design that you might prefer.

Magic Bullet Kitchen Express

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender is better than the Magic Bullet Essential. Both are meant for making smoothies, and the Magic Bullet makes a smoother blend with common ingredients like kale and blueberries. However, it's not a huge difference, and the ZWILLING blender has a few other benefits that make it better overall. It's much sturdier and comes with a resealable lid for its jar. It's also more versatile since it's much more suitable for small batches of nut butter and hummus.

Smeg Personal Blender PBF01

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender is better than the Smeg Personal Blender PBF01 for most purposes. It has a much better build quality and does a much better job of processing fibrous fruits and vegetables, which is important for smoothies. It's significantly quieter.

It's on the big, heavy side for a personal blender, but it's still easy to store on your counter or in a cabinet, especially if you remove the jar.

Design
Build Quality

It has a decent build quality. The motor body, jar, and lid are made of plastic, and there are four rubber feet under the motor base to help with ventilation and stability. Although there aren't any metal elements, the blender feels sturdy overall. However, a few elements are somewhat poorly designed. There's a lot of resistance when you turn the control dial to the left, and its smooth finish makes it hard to grip. No mechanism locks the jar onto the motor base. To dock the jar, you fit it into the slot on top of the motor base, but it doesn't lock or twist into place. and it's held in place through friction by four plastic tabs. These tabs don't seem particularly durable, and when you're using the blender, it can be unclear if the jar is properly installed on the motor base.

The blade assembly has four sharp blades with a serrated design. This design is unusual for blenders, and it doesn't have any obvious benefits over non-serrated blades like the Beast Health Blender's or the Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO's. Serrated blades are sometimes used in food processors for pureeing and grinding, and the design might help it excel at making nut butter, even though it's not as powerful as the Beast or Ninja.

The blade assembly isn't dishwasher-safe, unlike the jar and drinking lid.

The blade assembly attaches to the cup like a lid, like most personal blenders. There's also a drinking lid designed to open and close so that you can use the blending jar as a travel cup. The lids are easy to put on and remove. While the drinking lid is dishwasher-safe, the blade assembly needs to be cleaned by hand.

The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender is excellent for small batches of fibrous ingredients. If you're blending a smoothie with something like kale or blueberries, it takes about three 40-second blending cycles to get the best results. The process is still very easy, and it makes a uniform blend. However, you can see tiny unprocessed grains, so blenders like the NutriBullet Pro+ and Beast Health Blender make smoother purees.

It's excellent for processing fibrous ingredients at full capacity. It takes longer to process larger volumes of ingredients, so you need about four blending cycles to achieve the best results. There are tiny grains left over, and blenders like the Beast Health Blender make an even smoother blend, but most people will be very happy with the results.

It's a poor ice crusher. If you use pulse mode, the blades can shave off parts of the ice cubes and partially crush them. However, the crushed ice starts to build up around the walls of the jar, out of reach of the blades, making it hard for the blender to process any remaining ice cubes. You also need to constantly turn the pulse dial, which isn't as easy as pushing a button.

It's fantastic for nut butter. It makes extremely smooth, practically liquified nut butter, and more surprisingly, it's a very easy process. All you need to do is run 40-second blending cycles for about five minutes in total. Unlike most personal blenders we've tested, you don't need to undock the jar at any point to shake it. The motor base doesn't feel hot by the end, even without rest time between blending cycles.

It's not very loud for a personal blender. The noise will still be irritating after a few minutes if you're right next to it, but it's not a bad choice if you're looking for a quieter blender.

It has one speed setting, like most personal blenders, so it's not possible to fine-tune the blend speed to suit what you're making. Compared to many similarly priced personal blenders, it has a weaker motor and a slower blending speed. While it's not a huge difference, blenders with a faster speed and more power, like the Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ, or even blenders with a faster speed and less power, like the Magic Bullet Essential, can process fibrous ingredients more fully for recipes like smoothies.

The blender has slick-looking controls that light up when the jar is docked. When you turn the dial to the right, it starts a 40-second blending cycle, which is the blender's manual blending mode. Turning it to the left activates the motor for as long as you hold the dial there, which acts as a pulse mode. However, there's quite a bit of resistance when you turn the dial, which is small and smooth, so it's not very comfortable to use if you need to use pulse mode for a long time, like for ice crushing.

Ease Of Use
Cleaning

It's decently easy to clean by hand. If you're working with sticky ingredients, running the blender with soap and water in the jar cleans some residue from the blades but doesn't do the best job of washing the sides of the jar. Because the jar is narrow, you may need a brush with a handle to reach the bottom. The rim of the jar and blade assembly lid also require some scrubbing, as well as the blades themselves.
