Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by filmmonkey Very good coverage of very dirty and stained drywall
The drywall separating my garage from the house had never been painted in its 50 years of life - it was filthy, stained, and covered with writing. I wanted to paint it and so started with a can of this stuff. I was very pleased with the result - after one coat this was ready for the regular paint top-coat. I did go back and put a second coat of this over where the worst water stains had been as I could still see them a little. Great value especially compared to the price of good quality paint. Being oil based the fumes were pretty strong and it took about 2 days for the smell to die down, but well worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WeekendWarrior Excellent coverage - a little hard to work with
This primer really does it's job. I used it to paint white over tongue and groove cedar in a bathroom. The consistency of the paint is very thick and a little sticky so it can be somewhat hard to work with. Sort of like painting with marshmallow fluff, but not that extreme.
The coverage is excellent. I painted a top coat over this primer and there is no dark color showing through. This is an oil-based primer so the clean up is more work than water-based paint bt that is true of all oil-based paints. BTW, no problem painting a latex topcoat over this primer.

This a really good cover up from smoking
Covers up so you only need one cover of original paint

Kills original primer and Kills 2 are in my opinion the only primer to use. For any project!

While the smell is terrible, and lasts 2-3 days, oil based paints provide superior coverage and protection, in my opinion.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oilbased Primed kitchen
Our old house had very damaged kitchen walls with numerous layers of old paint/wallpaper. After extensive scraping and sanding etc to prepare the wall surface witch probably would have been easier to just put up new Sheetrock - we used the kilz primer to block out the old stains and it did exactly what we needed done - it worked great. My only disappointment is that we inadvertently bought the oil based which requires mineral sports for cleanup - which is very messy trying to clean up the rollers and paint tray. Ended up just having to throw them out. Will use the product again but would recommend the water based over the oil.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Garageman Buy more than the label says
The oil-based product covers better than the latex, worth the extra hassle of cleanup. Biggest reason for the low "value" rating is that the coverage was not even close to what was shown on the can. Ended up buying almost twice as much to get the job done.
