InSinkErator Evolution Compact has the term ‘compact’ in its name, so I simply chose it as the benchmark. So I made a list of garbage disposals that have an overall height of 13 inches or less.

Evolution Compact and Essential XTR are two popular garbage disposals made by InSinkErator.

It is this similarity in looks that made me check for differences between the models. On further research, I found many similarities as well as differences between Essential XTR and Evolution Compact disposal models.
