Cooking eggs in the air fryer is so easy! I have made Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs, but I think the air fryer may be my favorite way to make them now! If you love eggs you will definitely enjoy my Air Fryer Egg Bite Cups.

These eggs will work great for breakfast or to use in other recipes! Pair the eggs with Air Fryer Sausage, Air Fryer Bacon, or Air Fryer Hash Browns.

Is Air Frying Hard Boiled Eggs Faster Than Boiled Eggs on the Stove?

Probably not, depending on the consistency that you like your eggs. I used to boil eggs for about 10-12 minutes. I spend just a few more minutes on them in the air fryer.

But I get to WALK AWAY…..do other things….without babysitting boiling water on the stove. This is great for meal prep when I’m preparing several different meals all at once.

How to Make and Cook Hard Boiled Eggs in the Air Fryer

  1. Place the eggs in the air fryer basket. You can make however many you want, that will fit comfortably in the basket.
  2. Air Fry.
  3. Remove the eggs and place them in an ice bath.
  4. Peel the eggs.

Air Fryer Temperature for Hard Boiled Eggs

Cook the eggs at 260 degrees. A lower temperature is used so that you don’t overcook the eggs at a higher temperature.

How Long Do You Cook the Eggs?

16 minutes is my sweet spot. I have a 1700w air fryer. 16 minutes will yield hard-boiled eggs with a thick yolk. If you are looking for softer yolk, you can test cooking for less time.

How Long Do You Ice Bath Hard Boiled Eggs?

Place the eggs in a bowl with water and ice for 5 minutes or until the eggs have completely cooled.

Placing the eggs in an ice bath will cool them and stop them from cooking. It will also make it a lot easier to peel the shells.

If you have very cold faucet water, you can run the eggs under water, too. You can read more about Mistakes to Avoid When Making Hard Boiled Eggs here.

Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs Tips

  • I like to cook 5-6 eggs at a time. You can cook as many as you want. I have not tested stacking eggs in the air fryer so I recommend that you don’t stack, unless you wish to test it out.
  • Some eggs may develop small bumps or protrusions on the shells after air frying. It’s normal and the eggs will still be fine.
  • Play around with the cook time using your brand of air fryer and how you like your eggs.

Genius recipe! I have been an "old school boil my eggs gal" and recently steaming my eggs, forever, but this AWESOME recipe converted me! New to the air fryer (I got the Cosori) and tried this yesterday, my boiled egg this morning was PERFECT - I don't think I'll boil in water ever again. Thank you Stay Snatched for this incredible life hack!

I had no idea I could do this! I feel like such a newbie. Thank you so much for this. I can set this in the morning and don't have to babysit the darn pot. ?

Do the eggs slide out of the shells like they do when cooked in the Instant Pot?
