Think about it. If stainless steel didn't do such a good job at transferring heat, then they wouldn't use it to make pots and pans.

Now, with that said, have you considered using stainless steel and getting it ceramic coated? That might do the trick.

As for making pipes out of aluminum, there are 2 reasons for this.

1. Aluminum is cheaper
2. Aluminum dissipates heat quicker than stainless steel. Thats why most heat sinks are made of aluminum (or even better copper) instead of steel.
