Air fryer hard boiled egg

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes
Servings: Depends on the number of eggs
Intensity: Easy


  • Eggs (as many as you want to cook)


  1. Preheat Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 250°F (120°C) for about 2 minutes.
  2. Place Eggs in Air Fryer:
    • Arrange the eggs in the air fryer basket in a single layer. You can cook as many eggs as your air fryer can accommodate in one layer without overcrowding.
  3. Air Fry Eggs:
    • Air fry the eggs at 250°F (120°C) for 15 minutes. This low temperature and longer cooking time help achieve a consistent and evenly cooked texture.
  4. Cool Eggs:
    • Once the cooking time is up, carefully remove the eggs from the air fryer basket using tongs or a spoon.
    • Immediately transfer the hot eggs to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process and quickly cool them down. Let them sit in the ice water for about 5 minutes.
  5. Peel and Enjoy:
    • After the eggs have cooled, gently tap them on a hard surface to crack the shell all over.
    • Peel the shells off the eggs under running water or in the ice water to make peeling easier.
    • Slice or halve the hard-boiled eggs as desired and enjoy them plain, seasoned with salt and pepper, or use them in salads, sandwiches, or as a snack.


  • Adjust the cooking time slightly if you prefer softer or firmer yolks. Increase the cooking time for firmer yolks or decrease it for softer yolks.
  • It’s important to cool the eggs quickly after air frying to prevent them from overcooking and to make peeling easier.

Air fryer hard-boiled eggs can be a convenient option, especially if you want to cook a larger batch without using a stovetop. Enjoy your perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs!
