Paint on Cabinets

What is the easiest and most efficient way of getting paint off cabinets without sanding? The house I just bought has nice cabinets but whoever painted the kitchen last did a poor job and there is paint where the cabinets meet the walls! The best advice is appreciated!!!

Paint on Cabinets

What kinda paint is it? A latex, and alkyd, a fingerpaint?

And, you wanna remove it from the latex paint on your kitchen walls, and from what on your cabinets? Presumably an oil based clear coat like real varnish or polyurethane?
