Mixture of plywood and particle board in kitchen cabinets

Does anyone have experience with mixed wood grades in kitchen cabinets? We noticed that ours have plywood on one side and particle board on the other. The particle board is always on a side adjacent to an appliance, so is colored. However, we thought plywood could be stained or painted, so don't understand why one would select particle board for the surfaces next to the dishwasher.
