No, none of the crockpots I know of have a sensor to detect when the
temp gets past a certain point like rice cookers do. They are made to
come to a certain temp and stay there until turned off (or after a
certain amount of time they drop to low.)
But they do make a great pot of oatmeal overnite, and can handle many
other grains quite well.
What I would do is find a crockpot (slowcooker of whatever brand) at a
good will or other thrift store. (remember, the older the better, imho.
if you can find a 70's crockpot with a glass lid, you've hit the
jackpot!) Probably will only cost about $10. Try it during the day when
you can check on it periodically, then you'll know how long you can
leave it to itself.
