Which wood best for kitchen wall shelves?

Which type of wood is the best to use in a kitchen where we have a lot of steam from the cooking etc.?
Solid wood would be the best I suppose but it's very high in price, so should it be plywood or MDF?

You can use ply or moisture resistant mdf as long as you paint or treat them but solid wood always better and that would be my own preference you don’t have to pay through the nose for it either plenty of firms out there at reasonable prices

I would use solid pine for the shelving, because you can paint it or stain it,if you use mdf make sure it’s laminated,

Solid wood but is expensive for cheaper marine plywood.
