Can I use a 30 cm Demeyere Intense fry pan on a 7 in electric coil burner?

I recently purchased a set of Demeyere Intense cookware from Costco. This is my first cookware set and even though I don’t cook every day I wanted to get something that was quality and would last. This set comes with a fry pan whose outer diameter measures 30 cm. Though the packaging for the pan itself actually uses the “5-plus” branding, I’m not sure that this pan is equivalent to the Industry 11 inch as my understanding is that should measure 28 cm? Demeyere’s instructions state that any piece that measures 28 cm should not be used on a burner less than 7.1 inches. Unfortunately, the coil on the largest burner on my stove measures exactly 7 inches (see the images below).

I ordered the cookware before I moved in so I couldn’t measure before now. Is it safe to use this fry pan on this burner? Will I risk warping it? One of the reasons I went with Demeyere is that I was worried about the cheap electric stove warping cheaper/thinner cookware.

I’m unsure whether that warning even applies to this pan since it’s actual cooking/flat surface is a lot smaller than 30 cm. I’m not worried about the other pieces in this set since they all have straight sides and measure 26 cm or less.

I’ve also uploaded an image of how the pan looks sitting on that burner. I intend to use this pan to brown meat, cook chicken, etc. I will be purchasing a separate non-stick pan for things like eggs.

I was hoping the community here would have some insight on this. Thanks in advance! :)
