Making hard boiled eggs will never be the same; no worry about whether they’re simmering or boiling over, no heating up the kitchen, no worry about the cook time. Just set the rack in your air fryer and take the eggs directly from the fridge. 


10 eggs
Wire rack


1. Set your wire rack inside the basket and place the eggs on top of the rack.

2. Set the temperature to 250ºF and the timer to 18 minutes.

2. After the eggs are done carefully remove them from the air fryer and place them in a bowl of ice water, to stop the cooking process (and to make them easier to peel!). Then peel the eggs and enjoy!

    Hello, I am a newbie. Do you put the eggs on regular bake setting or air fry setting? Does it matter where you place the air fry rack within the unit?

    I was very skeptical at first when I saw this recipe how to cook hard boiled eggs in the airfryer, but I thought that I have nothing to lose , just 10 eggs and 18 minutes, LOL.
    I am so glad I gave it a try – eggs came out PERFECT!!!!!!
    Thank you Kalorik for this inspirational recipe.

    I have tried 4 times to make hard boiled eggs in my air fryer……they come out awful

    The given cooking time and temp above produced barely a soft boiled egg. Maybe the oven needed to be preheated or else it needs more cooking time.

    There is not a preset for eggs? Recipe on line is different than in book. Book does not tell you what temperature to use? Argh!!
