Your new favourite way to “boil” eggs is using an air fryer! Get all of the advice right here!

SETTLEMENT TIMES: Four minutes for preparation

15 minutes for cooking
19 minutes in total


  1. Four large eggs, or as many as twelve, depending on how big your air fryer is.


  1. Set your air fryer’s temperature to between 270°F and 275°F (132-135°C). Adjust your air fryer to 300°F (148°C) if the temperature doesn’t go below that.
  • Add the eggs to the basket, leaving a little space between each one. Close the air fryer.
  • For soft boiled eggs, cook for 9-11 minutes. For jammy eggs, cook 12-13. For hard boiled eggs, cook for 13-15 minutes.
  • If you set your air fryer to 300° F (148°C), subtract about 1-2 minutes. Remember, you’ll need to practice a bit to figure out how long to cook in your particular air fryer.
  • While the eggs cook, prepare the ice bath. Fill a bowl halfway with ice, then add cold water until the bowl is 3/4 filled.
  • Remove the eggs from the air fryer and set them in the ice bath for about 4-5 minutes, until cool but not cold (this makes them easier to peel).

Gently crack the egg shells, rolling them a bit along a hard surface to make cracks along all sides. Peel and enjoy right away or store for later.


There will be a learning curve while using this recipe, so use it as a guide to help you with your cooking. Start by cooking one or two eggs until you get the hang of it; you’ll need to experiment a little to determine the perfect cook time for the eggs you like.

To store: When preparing to eat, peel the cooked eggs but do not cut them. According to the USDA, you can keep cooked eggs covered in the refrigerator for up to seven days by transferring them to an airtight container or bag.
