Displacement Measuring cup

Does anyone have one of those displacement measuring cups, where yo u slide the pusher down to the desired graduation and then fill cylinder up with whatever?
What do you use it for? I had one but it broke, and i went to marshalls today to get olive oil, and came out with seasoned rubs and a new displacement measureing cup.
They didnt have and olive oil. Not sure if i am going to another marshall's or to the same one later.

I think I've seen the cups. Like the ones Alton Brown uses on his show. I've not used the cups, but seen them in the store. They tend to be pretty pricey, at least the ones I saw. It'd be great to use for something like butter or crisco or peanut butter.

I have those measuring cups and they sit way back in the cordner of a cupboard somewhere. They don't get used much.

I have to that one and the regular all in one measuing cups that you slide the handle to the desired measurement and the same with the spoons. I love mine!
I mostly use the displacement cup for butter, sour cream, wet solids like that. My other are used for dry solids and I use my spoons for everything. It's easier than trying to find the right ones that have 5 or 6 different cups or spoons.
These are the new ones from The Pampered Chef. They are wonderful.

Thank you Texasgirl. I love my spoons and wondered what the cups looked like. Now I know!

Texas girl....

here's my conundrum...
I have my flour and sugar and such in canisters, and then I have the SS scoops that I can dip into the canister swipe it with a knife and keep going, when I was experimenting with the push measure cup it's like you have to take something dump the whatever into it, until you have filled it, then I get tempted to pat it down and then swipe it, is that what it is or am I doing something wrong here?

When I see the convoluted and difficult measurements used by Americans for 'cup' measurements... I'm so GLAD I use imperial or metric (depending on the recipe!)
