Expert Tips

  • Air Fryer: If your air fryer doesn’t go below 300 degrees, that’s ok! You will just need to subtract 1-2 minutes from the recommended cooking times. In order to use 270 on my air fryer I need to select “reheat” instead of “air fry”. Check your instruction manual to see if your air fryer has any functions like this.
  • Ice Bath: Don’t skip the ice bath! This is important to prevent overcooking and to help them peel easily.
  • Leave Space: Make sure not to overcrowd your air fryer. You’ll need space between each egg to ensure proper cooking.
  • Cook Times: Keep in mind that the cook times will vary depending on how to like your eggs. For a very soft “boil”, with slightly runny whites: 9 minutes. For jammy eggs, 11 minutes. For just slightly undercooked yolks: 13 minutes. For hard “boiled”, 15 minutes. Feel free to play around with these times when you get comfortable and have a preference that isn’t listed here.
