    I was thinking copper due to thermal conductivity, but yes, stainless would be much better.

    Yes true. I hadn't thought of using metal to help keep the food cool. Even my "carousel bin" concept would benefit from a metal bottom plate to keep things cool. It seems 316 stainless is hard to machine (for an amateur) so with my design I could just have a stainless plate that the carousel turns on top of.

    Ha-ha you give me far too much credit.

    This is true. I've used a pc fan with magnets glued to it to drive a magnetic stir bar and it works well. Though a purpose built device would be more reliable.
