I doubt it will work well, part of what makes electric kettles work well is that wort is very fluid and you get convection currents easily formed. In a decoction you have a thick mash which wont heat evenly, or mix on its own. That being said it is worth a try.
Don't take any more faith in anything I say than you would anyone else on the internet. If you listen to what I say, then hurt your self or break something it is your own fault, I am just expressing my opinion or experience.
THINK for your self!!
