It's not quite as legit as a full blown timer model, but you could hook your oatmeal/rice cooker up to a lamp timer and set it to come on at whatever o'clock, then turn it off after you eat, or even have the lamp timer click it off.

You could use a timer like this:

It is the first one I found so I make no claims that it is a good one or a good price. Just make sure whatever timer you get is rated for high enough current to run your cooker.

Would another option be to make it in a crock pot the night before? I haven't done this yet, but it's on my list to try out. Something like this: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/overnight-oatmeal-recipe/index.html

Sorry if it's not what you're looking for; I just wanted to give you another option that would be cheap!

Here's one more option for you. Make ahead and keep it in the fridge. I do this with both steel-cut and regular oatmeal.

Make enough servings for your work week, shorting the water and cooking time just a shade - unless you like oatmeal with a softer consistency. I add spices before letting it cool and storing in a container in the fridge.

Then each morning you can dole out a portion into a bowl and in less than two microwave minutes you're ready to have breakfast.

@minkeygirl7: Oh, its just me as well. It can make up to 20 cups of rice at one time, but I've never actually done it. I think the most I ever made at one time was 4 cups.

I recently bought this rice cooker with a delay timer and it's worked quite well:

It's a 20-cup model, but you don't have to make 20 cups every time; my gf makes only enough rice for the two of us. We steam our vegetables on top.
