Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HSHOBX Excellent performance and value.
We tried Rustoleum's Cabinet Transformations and it worked very well, but it's expensive at $79 per quart, and we don't use the included glaze so that's just a waste, and the poly finish coat is an extra step.
Cabinet Coat contains urethane, is a nice satin finish, goes on easily and cleans up well.
We first washed and primed old cabinets, then two coats of Cabinet Coat and they were like new again. We have also used this on new unfinished cabinets - we did not prime first but should have.
Interesting that this kit is $2 cheaper than Cabinet Coat sold on its own? Identical can of product, but the kit provides some tools (roller, paint tray, tack cloth) for less money.

After resanding 3 doors. it didn't take long to learn how to work with this paint. I agree read all the reviews they will help you understand how to use this paint. I had my paint tinted a gray color at HD.
It takes a long time between coats of paint. I gave a second coat after about 3 hours. The cabinets look great after you are finished. Much better than if you used regular paint. With a lot harder surface,
that you need on cabinets. I had 26 doors so this was no easy fast job. You had to take your time. I also sanded and primed all the wood first. Buy the kit the black roller in the kit is great for the job.

Product worked great for my project. Pricey per gallon, but goes a long way. The white is a very bright white. I refinished golden oak cabinets and took advantage of the grain in them to apply some Rust-Oleum Transformations decorative glaze (Java Brown) after painting, then some light sanding with 800-2000 grit wet sandpaper- This gave a very smooth finish and distressed look. VERY pleased...No-one can tell I painted these cabinets. They look factory finished! Fairly time consuming the way I did it, but saved a ton over new cabinets.

I used this for some baseboard trim I made from MDF as well as some cabinetry in our TV room. The 4" foam roller that came with the kit worked very well, so long as you rolled enough to get rid of any high spots or ridges. For how thick the paint was, it flowed out very well. People asked me if I sprayed it. I also like the fact that it's self-priming. It does scuff when in contact with certain materials, but you can scrub off the scuff marks. I will use it again.

First off, I recommend that you read EVERY review published on this product, so that you can get tips from everyone and do what works best for you. Like another reviewer, I had mixed wood and laminate cabinets, so sanding everything was not going to happen. Instead I did 2 coats of Zinsser 1-2-3 primer, and then 2 coats of Cabinet Coat, done with a foam roller and some smaller foam and regular brushes. This is not just a 2-coat process, in my experience. Use the 220 grit sandpaper to sand off the rough spots and re-coat. Key Tip: Set up a table or ironing board and then paint the doors on that raised surface. Otherwise, your back and legs will kill you after day 1. Also, set up some 2x4's so that you can dry the doors en masse. For really rough spots, use wood filler or Bondo. And plan to caulk everything, otherwise gaps will show. I'd give this product 5 stars, but it does crack at times when you screw on new hardware. Screw the knobs in from the back, and plan to do a touch-up coat if needed. We have a small kitchen, and this whole project took me about a week. Do several thin coats, and allow them to fully dry on each coat. My wife loves the look of the cabinets now, and we didn't have to buy new ones, so on the whole the project was a big success. And I loved that the product is water based, so there aren't terrible fumes or messy cleanup involved. PS: One reviewer said that this tints like Behr Ultra White. I'm not sure if that's 100 percent accurate. But we did tint both the primer and the Cabinet Coat a Behr Swiss Coffee, and it looks really nice.

The kit contained all that I needed except for primer. My cabinets needed a primer because the paint just soaked in and didn' t cover good. I had to use 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of the paint to get a good coverage. The cabinets look good and have a nice smooth finish but it was time consuming because of the extra coats I had to use.
