The first step in this easy process is to preheat the air fryer to 250°F. This speeds up the process a bit and lowers the overall cooking time.

If you don’t preheat, just add a couple of extra minutes to the cooking time.

If you do preheat the air fryer, set your timer for as little as 14 minutes or as long as 17 minutes, depending on your desired doneness.

TIPS FOR MAKING AIR FRYER HARD BOILED EGGS

If your eggs do not come out to your ideal doneness the first time, adjust the timer and settings to work towards finding the perfect time to cook hard boiled eggs in your air fryer.

The wattage can vary from one model to the next so the time is an estimate since Air fryers typically use 800 to 2,000 watts of power depending on the model.

Be sure to place your eggs in cold water, under running water, or place in an ice bath. I recommend using an ice water bath because it is helpful to stop the eggs from overcooking.

If your air fryer does not have a basket you can still use this method to make hard boiled eggs in your air fryer just be sure to not overcrowd them.

I find that cooking no more than 12 eggs at once gives me the best results.

HOW TO STORE AIR FRYER HARD BOILED EGGS

Keep air-fried hard-boiled eggs refrigerated for a maximum of seven days, whether they’re in their peeled or unpeeled state.

For peeled eggs from the air fryer, immerse them in a bowl of cold water, ensuring to cover the bowl, and remember to change the water daily.

Alternatively, preserve them in an airtight container alongside a damp paper towel to maintain their freshness.

For unpeeled air-fried boiled eggs, store them in a refrigerator container.
