Benjamin Moore "Advance" or "Cabinet-Coat"?

Hi Everyone!

I know I want to paint all my cabinets, trim, and doors in Benjamin Moore “White Dove”.

I was all set to buy Advance based on the reviews I've read online and went to my local BM store. The guy there said the Advance would yellow and I should use CC. I left confused...

I've now read about CC and it does sound promising – until I read one post that said it has a natural green tint to it so my White Dove might not match the samples I painted in WB Satin Impervo (which is being phased out so not an option).

Which do you recommend?

Benjamin Moore "Advance" or "Cabinet-Coat"?

Advance is a waterborne alkyd- meaning oil. But it is a veg. based oil, not petro . Will not yellow near as much as the old oils, but will some , and might be noticeable in the light colors. New enough paint that i haven't been around it after a year to tell.
Cab Coat is also a great choice. Best might be to get a qt of it and see if it is close enough to a White Dove match to satisfy you.
If the whole project is the same material it should work fine.
