Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by painter Just OK
I used this during a home renovation where there were cigarette stains and a heavy odor. Not to mention crayon marks, etc. on the wall from kids. I put on 3 coats of this stuff using a sprayer after first prepping the rooms by cleaning as best I could. In some of the worst rooms, the dingy color still bled through. It wasn't until I applied 2 coats of Behr Ultra paint that those spots mostly, if not completely disappeared. It seems to have at least done a decent job of eliminating odor and for that I give it 3 stars. If your main reason for buying this is to cover up stains on the wall, I'd recommend looking elsewhere. The cost of the MAX just isn't justified for the results.

Good product and shipped to home fast. A bit pricey, but does a good job covering the cigarette smell left by the former owners of the house.

I had to get rid of the yellowing stains and smell of years of smoking from a previous tenant. Easy to apply, I rolled Kilz Max Primer on ceilings and walls! It kilz it all! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chadly2376 Awesome stain blocker and sealer!!!
I used this at my grandparents place they just moved into recently- they had a plywood shed on their front covered porch that needed to match the exterior house color. One coat of this product, 1 hour later was able to cover effortlessly with Behr Ultra Exterior satin paint! They were happy, I was happy because it took very little effort and time, and I enjoyed visiting and having coffee in between steps.
Thank you Kilz- this primer really works like advertised, blocking oily stains and dirt and allowing me to cover in one coat of paint. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Allstarpainting Good sealer and bonding primer.
I've used this twice over the past few jobs. First job was a smoker's house at least 10 years. The walls were flat paint so no chance of washing. The kilz max waterborne sealed it perfectly. I did let it dry overnight before top coating.
I have just tried it out on cabinets and it was dry and able to sand within the hour! Powders up very nicely, bonded well.
Tips: stir it very well and often. It can dry out so move rather quickly. Do not mix with any other paint!
If you cover a water stain on ceiling. Two coats and let it dry overnight before topcoat. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I've used and tried a few different primers, kilz is the best. Easy to use, low cost, great coverage, and on a recent furniture project, killed the smell in one of the the drawers. :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Foreman4 Great for changing colors
Our newly purchased house had mint green and salmon walls and ceiling. Painted them three times and the color still came thru. Painted once with kill and a color coat and now our walls are white.
Should have started with Kiln in the first place! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
