Bedec Multi Surface Paint is excellent. You’ll only need this paint. Also remember to first degrease all the cabinets prior to a good sanding. Good luck.

I really like using a brand called Zinsser all coat on these types of surfaces. Depending on your brush work , spraying maybe the easier option as you can layer the paint and reduce the risk of dripping and pooling into corners.

When spraying ensure good ventilation and also wear a mask to prevent inhailation of the product.

Agreeing fully with ladypainter deco - ensure all surfaces have been cleaned,degreased and dried before painting and any surface not to be painted to be well covered.

I recently painted some existing kitchen units to match new ones for a rental property and would also swear by Bedec multi surface paint. It's a bit expensive but if you make sure everything is cleaned and prepped properly it will give excellent results.

I recommend Juno primer and eggshell oil or water based finish for durability and toughness also use sugar soap as a degreaser
