Annealing issue

I had a bunch of products in my inhaler and it was cooled down to room temperature when someone in my shop turned it back on by accident and it went up to about 800 before they shut it down.
When it cooled down the next day one of the paperweights has split in half and everything else in there looks fine.
Next time would it be safe to bring it all the way up to annealing temperature and leave it there for the typical amount of time and then bring it down so that it anneals properly again or would that still introduce stress just because it went up so fast(one hour usually from room temp to 950f)
What is the safest way?
