Consiglio's Kitchenware is a family run Canadian company established since 1975. The original location was in the heart of Corso Italia, Toronto's Italian district, from 1975 - 2016. The store was a pillar in the community frequented by customers from far and wide. The various departments boasted premium Italian housewares, specialty food prep and even Italian specialty imported foods.
The retail portion of the store was nearly 20,000 square feet over four floors. Our notable brands include the likes of Giannini, Le Creuset, All-Clad, Marcato and Bialetti. In 2008 the business took to the world wide web where it quickly grew its product offerings and expanded to different markets in Canada and United States. In 2016 the e-commerce portion of the business required a new larger warehouse to meet the growing demand. The company has since operated in Etobicoke Ontario, at 41 Horner Ave, where orders are fulfilled for customers far and wide.
The Consiglio family still retains ownership of the original building. The property now hosts many unique business in the Corso Italia St. Clair West neighbourhood. The original signage and some original components of façade have been retained for historical purposes.
From 1989 - 2010 Consiglio's hosted "The Great Tomato Hunt" a contest where contestants weighed their heaviest tomato, for a chance at thousands in prizes. Over the years tens of thousands were raised for the heart and stroke foundation. The event was founded by Salvatore Consiglio, son of the late founder John Consiglio, whom passed away from heart disease in 1993. Hundreds of contestants lined up annually, the heaviest tomato weighed would win a $4500.00 store shopping spree. The largest tomato ever weighed was 3.365 kg – almost beating the Guinness world record for the largest tomato at that time! Now well into our third generation, the business is run by Salvatore Consiglio's children, John and Angela Consiglio. The same principles of quality service and competitive prices proudly remain. In 2018 a new YouTube channel was created to showcase recipes and videos of our over 1500 product assortment.
Little Italy is known as Toronto's go-to spot for world cup celebrations. The neighbourhood hosted over a half million soccer fans in a single day on both the 1982 and 2006 Italian world cup victories. The Italian Canadian heritage of this iconic neighbourhood has remained in our core, and is represented in many of the products we offer today.
In 2016 Consiglio's Kitchenware moved to a new larger warehouse located at 41 Horner Ave in Etobicoke Ontario, servicing Canada and the United States. Nearly 50 years later, we are proud to offer a unique shopping experience and only the best products from Europe and abroad.
