I have the one that screws. I used one of those hobby lobby coupons when I got it, so it wasn't too expensive. I usually will microwave the fondant (I use MMF) for a few seconds so it gets squishy. It's a little bit tedious unscrewing it to fill up again and it seems to need refilled really quickly. Other than that, I like it.
