No recommendation of what paint to use, you can use any paint but...
- do not use emulsion
- use the most hardwearing paint you can find in the finish you want
- if you use oil based avoid white/warm shades as they may darken
- follow the manufacturer's instruction for the possible use of undercoat after BIN.

So sorry for being so vague ...

Benjamin Moore do one called Ultra spec Scuff x, I'm sure that would be hard wearing enough.

Excellent, and it comes in 3 finishes unlike Crown that only has Matt and Eggshell in their extreme whatever paints.

Tikkurila is another popular choice for kitchens, I painted mine in 'feelings' furniture paint.

I'd also recommend highly - INSL -X Stix primer .

As solid as BIN and water based, sands nice and flat. (I reckon it's better - don't tell Anyone)
