For small slicing tasks, we’re fans of L’Econome serrated paring knives. Their rustic-looking multi-colored handles make them downright cute, but they’re also just the kind of all-purpose paring knives you want in your kitchen. Handy and compact, they’re excellent for slicing fruit and salad vegetables (especially cherry tomatoes) or just for cutting through a sandwich. And the Messermeister serrated-edge peeler works wonders with summer produce; its extremely sharp edge removes skins from peaches and tomatoes smoothly and easily.

L’Econome serrated paring knife, $7 each or $29 for a set of five, at Williams-Sonoma (877-812-6235; www.williams-sonoma.com). Messermeister serrated-edge peeler, $5.50, at Sur La Table (800-243-0852; www.surlatable.com).
