  • Preheat the air fryer. Preheat your air fryer to 250°F. This may not always be necessary. It depends on your air fryer. I don’t usually preheat mine and I end up with the same results, but it’s best to read your air fryer manual for best instructions.
  • Hard boil the eggs. Gently place the eggs in the air fryer basket. Set the timer to 13 minutes for softer boiled eggs or 15-17 minutes for hard boiled eggs. The time could vary from air fryer to air fryer.
  • Cool the eggs and peel. Transfer the eggs to a bowl with ice water and let them sit for 5 minutes. Doing this stops the eggs from cooking further. After 5 minutes peel and enjoy!


  1. Make sure your eggs don't have any cracks in them when placing them in the air fryer basket. Also be gentle with them as you place them in the basket so they don't crack.
  2. Slightly older eggs are easier to peel than fresh eggs. In an older egg, inner membrane is less likely to bond to the egg white, so the shell peels off much easier.
  3. Place your eggs in an ice bath or cold water to stop the cooking process, especially if you like your egg yolk softer. Doing this also helps eggs peel easier.
  4. I like to keep my eggs in the shells to keep them as fresh as possible. Keep the eggs in the fridge up to 1 week before discarding. I don’t recommend storing hard boiled eggs in the freezer as they will have an odd consistency after thawing.
