My Air Fryer has somewhat become of a staple in our house for breakfast foods now. We use it either to make bacon, livermush (It’s a North Carolina thing), air fryer steak, air fryer egg frittatas, and now…boiled eggs.

Ok, so technically the eggs aren’t boiled because they are placed in your Air Fryer with no water. But the finished product and consistency is the equivalent of boiling the perfect hard boiled egg on the stove.

The only way I can explain why this happens because of…magic. The Air Fryer is magical and it can pretty much do every and anything 🙂

How to make Hard Boiled Eggs in an Air Fryer

First, Preheat your Air Fryer to 270 degrees Fahrenheit. To preheat mine, I just start my Air Fryer with nothing in it and allow it to run for 3 minutes.

Once your Air Fryer is preheated, place 1-6 large eggs in the Air Fryer basket.

Cook on 270 degrees for 15 minutes.

Once 15 minutes is up, place your eggs in an ice water bath. This shocks the heck out of the eggs and this is what helps them peel. Ironically, I used to take water baths after races when i ran track in college, they suck. I feel the eggs pain…but it has gotta happen.

Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs vs. Stove Hard Boiled Eggs

I found that the stove version and the air fryer version are about the same in consistency.

Also, some brown spots tend to get on the outside of the eggs cooked in the Air Fryer. I initially thought they were leftover crumbs from the Air Fryer but then realized it happens all the time, even when my Air Fryer is super duper clean. So if your looking for your eggs to be pretty on the outside, stove top is the way to go.

Cooking in the Air Fryer takes about the same amount of time it takes to make on the stove when you factor in bringing your water to a boil. I personally find that the Air Fryer method is less hands on as I’m only waiting for a timer to go off. On the stove, I’d have to know watch for the boiling water.

But for me, when I’m getting dressed in the morning and need something quick, the Air Fryer method works best for me. I don’t have to pay attention to when the water is boiling and all that jazz.

Notes for Air Fryer Eggs

  • I recommend testing this method with one egg initially to calculate the best amount of time for your Air Fryer.
  • I’ve tried these eggs in different wattage Air Fryers. Here were my times and results:
    • Philips Avance XL – 2100 watts – 270 degrees at 15 minutes.
    • Ninja Foodi – 1400 watts – 300 degrees at 15 minutes.
    • Farberware – 1300 watts – 270 degrees for 16 minutes.
  • If your eggs have cracks or leaks, they will leak out during the Air Frying cycle.
  • This method works on brown or white eggs.
  • Fresh eggs may not produce the same results. I use store bought eggs for this method.
  • Looking for ideas on what to do with these things? Try these Southern Deviled Eggs.
