Waffle weaves suck! They just move around the water without absorbing anything. It seems counter-intuitive, but go for the flat weave you find in the old-world, French bar towels; they're fabulous and no lint!

I'm all for painted cabinets, however I have to agree with everyone else about investigating other ways to approach the problem. A different floor color to work in some contrast with the cabinets would help, a more interesting hood, brighter walls/backsplash, new stone countertops and, frankly, I'd lose the stainless steel. Everyone and their mother effuses over stainless these days, and it's beyond tired.

Echoing other comments (and paraphrasing Adolf Loos), painting red brick red is like painting wood brown. Either let the natural material be what it wants to be or do something that is immediately recognizable as altered.

If it is to be painted, I throw my lot in with those calling for slate grey with a cool, bright contrasting color for the door -- yellow (as has been already suggested), orange, sky blue or an apple green would look great.
