Thanks for the question!
I spoke with my cookware guru, and here is her description between the two:
"Thermolon was one of the first ceramic nonstick coatings to market. It has a heat safe temperature of 500F. Thermolon is a customer favorite and has been a top seller at CHEFS for a few years. The main customer complaint we received is, the nonstick coating only lasts a few years. Of course several things contribute to this, the heat at which the pan is used (medium heat is recommended for most), how the pan is cared for (hand washing with a soft cloth or sponge and nonabrasive soap is recommended), and what form of oil is used (no aerosol sprays). Properly caring for your pans will increase their longevity significantly. If your cooking style matches this criteria, I think Thermolon may be a good fit for you, and as an added bonus you save a little money.
Zwilling and CHEFS took our customer comments to heart and went back to the drawing board and developed CeraForce. We have since discontinued Thermolon (this is the cause of the price discrepancy). Having used both Thermolon and CeraForce I can tell you there is a noticeable difference between the two. CeraForce is incredibly smooth, and the nonstick is AMAZING. CeraForce is only recommended for use up to 400F, and the care instructions are still the same. Customers who have used both seem split down the fence, some notice absolutely no difference, and some are amazed at how much better CeraForce is."
I hope this helps!
