Wood or MDF painted white cabinets?

Looking for real world experience with white cabinets. Should I go with wood for a higher end look or high quality MDF lacquered and avoid possible hair line cracks in the finish? For the look we want, thermofoil is out.

I am going around in circles as to whether the risk of hair line cracks is common and how noticeable is it in a working kitchen. We live in an area (Ottawa, Canada) with dramatic temperature and humidity changes from season to season and we do not blast our AC in the summer.
This is a high end place and the prices aren't much different between lacquered MDF and lacquered wood.
What would those of you with white cabinets do if you did it all over again?
