One Simple Ingredient
EGGS: For best results, always choose the freshest eggs! To tell if they are fresh, drop each one into a glass of water. If they float, discard them, if they sink to the bottom and roll to one side, they are still fresh.
How to Make Hard Boiled Eggs in the Air Fryer
- Place eggs (as many as you need) in the air fryer basket and cook:
- For Soft-Boiled Eggs: 11 – 12 minutes
- For Medium-Boiled Eggs: 13 – 14 minutes
- For Hard-Boiled Eggs: 16 – 18 minutes.
Place cooked eggs in a bowl of ice cold water until cool enough to peel under running water. Season with salt and pepper, or for something a little more fun try everything bagel seasoning, and serve.
Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs Tips
- Cook when they are cold from the refrigerator or if they are at room temperature, adjust the cook time.
- Test one or two at first to see how your particular air fryer model cooks them.
- A bowl of ice water stops the cooking so they do not overcook and you will get the perfect egg yolk.
- Another method for peeling hard-cooked eggs is to tap them on the counter and then roll them until the entire shell is cracked. The shell should slip right off.
- Store in an airtight container for up to one week.

REPIN this Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs Recipe
What setting is your air fryer on? Bake or air fry?
Hi Ree, I always use the air fry setting unless otherwise stated. I hope this helps!
Fantastic!!! Thank you sooo much for this!!
I am so glad you are enjoying this recipe for eggs as much as I do! Now that I make them in the air fryer, I could never go back!
I have a oven air fryer not a pot I think everyone is using a pot and not the oven style.
I think you are right, Jay. The basket-style air fryer is definitely becoming more popular but this recipe should work well in both styles! Hope you enjoy it.
I never could get the eggs to hard boiled stage. 9 Minutes made them a soft and runny yolk.
Three more minutes still did not harden them enough. I was cooking 6 eggs. Was that too many at one time?
Could be – I think I did four when I tried this. Could be altitude too. Are you up high by chance?
