How to Make Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs

  • Author: RecipeTeacher
  • Total Time: 20 min
  • Yield: 6 eggs


Perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs made in your air fryer. No mess, no fuss, easy to peel.


  • 6 large eggs
  • Bowl of cold water
  • Ice cubes


  1. Preheat air fryer to 250°(F).
  2. Place the eggs in the air fryer basket (or tray), and cook on “air fry” setting for 15-18 minutes. (see notes below)
  3. Place ice cubes (a tray full should do) in a large bowl and fill halfway with water. Set aside.
  4. When cooking time is complete, use tongs or a slotted spoon to remove eggs from air fryer and gently lower the eggs into the ice water bath to cool.
  5. Let the eggs sit in the ice water bath for 5 minutes, or until completely cooled.
  6. Gently crack the eggs and remove the shells.


Air fryers will vary and cooking times can vary. Usually 15-18 minutes is ideal timing. For creamier, darker yolks use 15 minutes. For lighter, fluffier yolks use more time.
