Do some bananas just never get ripe?

Did putting one ripe banana in the bunch of green bananas work? I have some that have been green for 2 weeks (organic). They are in a bag with an apple and nothing has happened after a week of that. Still hard as rock.

Pampered Chef Stone turned black in broiler. Should I throw it away?

I did the taste test and that part was fine. It just lets off an awful smell like oven cleaner and charcoal. Should I worry now?

Pampered Chef Stone turned black in broiler. Should I throw it away?

I did a cook test last night after I soaked with baking soda over night. Tested with cookie dough and the flavor seemed fine. Only concern now is it let off an awful smell when the bar pan heated up in the oven. The smell was a little bit like oven cleaner and charcoal. I like my house to smell like the item I am cooking not burnt nothingness. Do you think the will the smell will go away after time? Should I see if it can be exchanged?

Pampered Chef Stone turned black in broiler. Should I throw it away?

If I try heating up some frozen french fries would that be a good enough test? I will not have time for a couple of weeks to do any real baking. What would you try as a true test? Should I pick up some frozen cookie dough tonight at the store and plop a few on? I'm gone 13 hours a day with work and driving so it will have to be something quick and easy for now. I usually bake scones on it but no time to make dough for that right now. Plus I'd be upset if those got distroyed by the pan. What food do you suggest?

Pampered Chef Stone turned black in broiler. Should I throw it away?

My husband put my pampered chef pan in the broiler and it looks like it was in a fire and turned black on top. Is it trash now or can it be cleaned with baking soda & water and still be worth keeping? I am bidding on some new pans on ebay but I would like to save this black pan if it is worth it. Please reply.
