Can I paint my kitchen cabinets without sanding?

If you are painting cabinets that have never been installed or varnished. Yes. But if there is any sign of food, oil from your hands, build up of grease near pulls and corners etc... you need to completely remove it all. If you don’t... paint will always chip or peel the moment you clean or hit those areas. Cleaning is the MOST IMPORTANT step.
