I was somewhat surprised to learn you can cook porridge in them.

What do you mean?
minimum portions of 6 and 20-30 minutes cooking time! Not that practical for most.

prefer to save £23 and do it in a pan in 8 minutes

Suppose it depends on what you would deem a portion. I regularly use this to make 2 portions at a time (1 portion probably being about the same as you get in a takeaway container). As stated by another poster above it does spit if you do less than that though.

The counter to it taking 20-30 minutes is that you can put it on hours earlier and just leave it to cook and stay hot.
I think it's depend on the rice type. If you cook Basmati rice, you need to rinse and then soaked it in the water before you cook.

But I always prefer jasmine rice. For all rice type you need to rinse the starch, but no need to soak for the jasmine type.

We have been using the rice cooker from Asda for about 8 years now, and it's cheap, it's about £10 in store.

I use an electric pressure cooker with a Pyrex bowl sat inside on a metal cookie cutter to keep it off the bottom.
Put your boiling water in the bottom of the pressure cooker pan, add rice to the glass bowl submerging the rice in boiling water then set cooker to steam for 12 minutes and release pressure naturally.
Strain rice and run a kettle full of boiling water over it to rinse. No need to wash the rice through beforehand.
If using basmati then 8 minutes and brown rice will take 18 minutes.
Might be common knowledge to some but no need for a dedicated rice cooker if you have an electric pressure cooker.

no need for an electric pressure cooker either if you have a pan. Soak rice, rinse then boil for 8 minutes with 1 part rice to 2 parts water. Perfect rice every time and less washing up
Definitely a Touch cheaper

Each to their own I guess.
Pressure cooker is safer if you have toddlers knocking around the kitchen and not as much condensation given off either.
Plus, frees up your pans and hob for all the other stuff you are concocting to serve with your rice
