Recipe Tips

  • An ice bath is one of the best ways to get the eggs to peel easily since the air fryer doesn’t use water.
  • The eggs will be very hot when they’re done cooking. Let them sit in the air fryer basket for a couple of minutes before taking them out. You can also use tongs if you want to get them in the ice bath sooner.
  • Since all air fryers cook a bit differently, I recommend experimenting with different cook times to find what’s perfect for you.

Variations

  • Soft boiled eggs cook for 11 to 12 minutes at 250 degrees.
  • Medium boiled eggs cook for 13 to 14 minutes at 250 degrees.
  • Hard boiled eggs cook for 16 to 18 minutes at 250 degrees.

Storing

Storing: Store hard boiled eggs in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
