Consiglio's Kitchenware in Toronto's Corso Italia Little Italy from 1975 - 2016. The store was a pillar in the community frequented by customers from far and wide. The store offered isles of unique and high quality goods imported from Europe. The first three levels boasted premium housewares, cookware and specialty food prep equipment. The lower level included a bustling food department with imported Italian oils, pastas and sauces. Many chef's would frequent the store for hard to find gadgets, ingredients and accessories.

The product selection was unique, offering key brands like Le Creuset, All-Clad, Marcato and Bialetti to name a few. 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 that a new larger warehouse be acquired to meet the growing demand for Consiglio's products. The company has since operated in Etobicoke Ontario in a new state-of-the-art facility, fulfilling orders for customers far and wide.

Consiglio's Great Tomato Hunt contest was hosted in the store from 1989 - 2010 and raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Heart & Stroke Foundation. The event was founded by Salvatore Consiglio, son of the late founder John Consiglio, who passed away from heart disease in 1993. Hundreds of contestants lined up annually in Corso Italia, 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 the time! Well into our third generation, the business is now run by Salvatore Consiglio's children, John and Angela Consiglio. The same principles of quality service and competitive prices have been retained. In 2018 a new YouTube channel was created to showcase recipes and videos of our over 1500 product assortment.
