Costco is currently selling a compact set also made by Oxo.  Really like it so far.

I looked at that for my tiny condo kitchen and wondered, other small ones, I have not had good experiences with.

It's Costco, so you could try it out and return it if you don't like it.  I will say that the optimal use is making zucchini noodles and it doesn't handle carrots or any other veggies so well.  I like it because it's sharp and stores safely and small.

Though it might be too small for a lot of applications, it was a tight fit for a large-ish, but nowhere near baseball bat size zucchini, I imagine it would be too small for potatoes, beets, etc.

Zucchini noodles are excellent tossed with sesame oil, fish sauce, red wine vinegar, and a dusting of Penzey's smoked paprika.

 Last night I made a Thai chicken curry using prepared curry paste and light coconut milk.  I served it over riced cauliflower, which I had stir fried in a bit of olive oil, sesame oil, and soy sauce.

Sunday night I made garden rolls from Charles Pham's cookbook and I followed the recipe 85% (didn't have the pork, so used ground pork, didn't make the homemade mayo, used Duke's and fried shallots).  We also had some pan fried dumplings.  Very tasty, although I kept getting tears in my paper.  When you have the ingredients for these, they are such a great easy dinner.
