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!

    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!!

    Hello, you mention placing the wire rack inside of the basket. My unit has a rack and a basket that are the same size, one can not fit inside of the other. It seems like the basket would be easier for removing the eggs when they are done. So is it best to use the rack or the basket. Also, do I need to preheat the cooker, first? Thanks!

    which wire rack fits inside the basket for the eggs to sit on? Thank you.
