This is a cup I had in my kitchen and never used. It is meant to separate the grease from the rest of your gravy. Since I didn't use it in the kitchen and before tossing it I decided to give it a try filling my steam iron. What a pleasant surprise! After all these decades of water spilling over and out of the reservoir while filling it, this type of cup makes it a breeze without loosing a drop of water!

Also, I live in Florida where the water is hard and the minerals clog up the iron. I have switched to using zephryhills bottled water to fill up the steam iron and it has eliminated the clogging and spewing problems.
