Has anyone ever used the paint primer
called ESP on wood stained cabinets
when you want to paint them?

What about the products Kilz, Kilz2
or the other Kilz brand...would any on
these be good for stained wood work
or trim or cabinets?

Sand the stained cabinets, and try to use the sander-primer-sealer of the paint manufacturer of the finish paint that you plan to use. Will usually bond better. Kilz is good, too, but is usually thicker and harder to clean up than other sps that I've used. In fact, Benjamin Moore's is called SPS. Good luck!

Kilz will work well, as will Benjamin Moore's Fresh Start. The zinsser primers are very good. Any of these products will work well. The key is the prep, especially in a kitchen. Grease and oils get onto the walls and cabinets just from cooking. These need to be cleaned off. Whatever you use to clean them, make sure it is thoroughly rinsed off. Now lightly sand with 200-300 or so grit sandpaper. The primers will work without the sanding, but I prefer to do it.
