Answer: 
You would have problems if your pan was bigger than the burner, but not smaller. See pic attached. The small pan works great on the larger burner and only the area where the pan sits, gets hot.

Hello,
Thank you for your interest in the GE Profile Induction Cooktop in Black with 5 Elements Model # PHP960DMBB.
Each cooking element requires a Minimum pan size. If the pan is properly centered, and of the correct material, but is too small for the cooking element, the element cannot be activated. The display will flash “F” along with the power level selected. Cookware larger than the element ring may be used; however, heat will only occur above the element. For best results, the cookware must make Full contact with the glass surface.
Place a pan matching the size of the induction element over the selected indicator ring. Compatible cookware for induction cooktops should be made of magnetic stainless steel, cast iron (works well but may scratch the glass unless it is porcelain coated), enameled steel or a combination of these materials. Pans should have a flat bottom and be at least 5 inches across the bottom.

Profile 36 in. Glass Ceramic Electric Induction Cooktop in Black with 5 Elements is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome cooktop My wife hates electric cooktops. She loves this cooktop. She loves the even cooking when frying. It cleans up easily since any food that spills doesn't get cooked onto the surface. The surface will get hot as the pan will transfer heat back onto the cooktop but it's nowhere near as hot as an electric cooktop. You do have to buy compatible cookware so keep that in mind if you're buying it. Aluminum won't work. If you can stick a magnet to the base, it should work. We bought some compatible pots and pans from Ross and Ikea so they don't have to be expensive. Some cheaper pans will emit a mild hum (sounds like the quiet hum from a florescent light fixture). It's not loud though. I probably wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't read about it first. Cast Iron will work as well. We did some tests with it. After putting a pan on the cooktop and turning it on, I could feel heat emanating from the pan in about 10 seconds. We were able to bring a 3 qt sauce pan filled with water to a full boil in about 3 minutes and a 16 qt stock pot to a full boil in about 13 minutes. If you're buying the 36", they require a 50 amp circuit so make sure you're wired for that. The 30" requires a 40 amp circuit. The instructions for hooking it up were clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice unit. Easy to install and use. Very happy with safety features. I purchased this unit as a replacement for a GE Profile five burner cook top. The old cook top was radient heat and stayed hot after use. The induction cook top cools much faster and is much safer to use with younger children in the house. The only con in the purchase of this unit is the need to replace cooking utensiles with ferous metal. Gave away two sets of high quality stainless steel bacause I could not use them on the new cook top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product BUT............... make sure you get pots and pans FOR this product. You can only use made for INDUCTION POTS AND PANS. It will say on the box of the pots and pans if it can be used for it. I had an induction stove which was wonderful once we found the pots and pans for it. It didnt say anything about it in the product description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Works very well. Great features. Slight hum when in use but not bothersome unless you are very noise sensitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much better than electric We bought this cooktop from Home Depot about 1 year ago. It's been holding up well. My wife hated the electric cooktop and wanted gas but our house wasn't piped for gas. It would have cost quite a bit to run gas. But she loves this induction cooktop. Some nice things about induction: food doesn't stick to the cooktop. Since the cooktop doesn't get as hot as a standard electric cooktop, spilled foods don't cook onto the cooktop. That makes for easy cleaning. There is some heat transfer from the pan to the cooktop but it's nowhere near as hot as an electric. Heats like gas: The reaction time to when the pan starts heating is almost instantaneous. You put the pan on the top and you can feel the heat start to build up. . Turns off automatically when you take the pot off the top. It looks as good today as it did when we first bought it. Some downsides that are common to all induction is that you have to have special pans. They have to be magnetic. If a magnet doesn't stick to the pot, base, it won't work on this cooktop. They don't have to be expensive. We found some pans from Ikea that work fine. For the 36" cooktop, you'll need a 50 amp line. For the 30" it's a 40 amp. The hook up was simple. 3 wires and you're done. Anyone competent with electrical should be able to hook it up for you if you're not comfortable with it (turn your breaker off).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE it. Being a “real” cook and having to deal with an electric stove has always been a frustration. With the induction cooktop, I get the best of worlds, gas and electric. It heats up immediately and cools down just as fast. No more pots boiling over. It does make an interesting hum when it’s on but it’s well worth it to be able to boil water in 2 min. I have not experienced any of the issues with scratching others have commented on. When this stove dies, I will buy another one, no question about it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't have to have a 50 amp breaker The breaker is there to protect the wire not the appliance. You can run this on a 30 or 40 amp breaker. you just won't be able to run all burners on high at the same time without tripping the breaker. But who does that anyway?
Date published: 2014-10-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Induction cooking is the best!! I love it, especially with the correct pans. I'm on my third set, trying to find the best for my preferences. I tried the tri-ply stainless, but due to sticking, it drove me crazy and I didn't want to re-learn how to cook with all stainless. I tried the non-stick pans with only the stainless base & they stink. They took too long to heat up and seemed to heat up only at the stainless base. I finally found stainless with a non-stick coating and now I am VERY pleased. The cooktop works like a dream and the clean up is extremely easy. The simmer (L) function will keep food warm for hours and not overcook. The high (H) function will boil your water in seconds to minutes (depending on the pan size). I don't like knobs, so the touch feature is better, but your fingers must be dry to use them. Any moisture cancels out your touch and they won't work. It would've been nice to have the burners outlined a little more. You can barely tell where the burner is, unless a light is shining down on the cooktop. I'm not sure about the efficiency but assume it will be better than electric. The built in timer is a nice bonus feature. My only wish is that we would've gotten this sooner.
