Tom I think I would do a test cabinet, wash down one of the cabinets to make sure there is no grease on it then let it dry completely. Remove any hardware then use a wipe on oil/poly or a gel varnish on the entire cabinet. Let it dry the recommended time and see if it needs additional coats or if it is even helping. I would add at least one more coat after you get full coverage.
