There is a raised edge around the outside corner of the fan face that prevents the colander from sliding off.  I also use the fan to help cool down the roaster.  I have the floor model which is a very convenient height.

How fast does that set-up cool?
I think you just can't beat sucking air through the beans, though it takes a fan that can take the heat.
An attic fan is just the thing.

I use a percolator basket, plus a huge rack fan, held together with aluminum tape.
