Did you know you can make perfect “hard boiled” eggs in the air fryer? They are not actually boiled, but baked in the air fryer, and they come out tasting and looking just like hard boiled eggs. This is the easiest method I’ve ever tried—no boiling water required. If you have an air fryer, your life is about to get even easier. Air fryer eggs are amazing so I hope you give them a try!

  • Gently add your eggs to the air fryer basket and air fry them at 250F for 16 minutes. If you air fryer doesn't have a setting as low as 250F, you can also cook them at 300F for 12-14 minutes. While the eggs are cooking, fill a bowl with ice water.
  • As soon as the timer goes off, transfer the eggs to the bowl of ice water. This prevents the eggs from overcooking and makes it easier to remove the peels.
  • Peel your eggs and enjoy.


This is a perfect method for batch-cooking eggs for the week or making egg salad
If you prefer softer yolks, you can experiment with reducing the cooking time by a minute or two. 
It’s important to transfer the eggs gently into the air fryer. For this step, I recommend using your hands. When the eggs are done, they’ll be hot, so use a slotted spoon or tongs to transfer the eggs to the ice water. 
The process of transferring hot food directly in ice water is called “shocking,” and it’s a technique you can use whenever you want to immediately stop food from cooking any further.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
