let me just add: wash the cabinets with a warm water and mild detergent solution before priming.

I have tested all the major primers on test chips of laminates. Hands down, by far the best was BIN pigmented shellac. It has incredible bond and less film build-up than the others. You can spray it or apply it with foam mini-rollers.
