Tips for Air Fryer Boiled Eggs
- All air fryer temperatures vary slightly. We’ve tested 4 different air fryers at 270°F for 15 minutes. The yolk is perfectly set and not dry.
- If it’s your first time, don’t do a huge batch at once! Cook a test batch first of maybe 1-2 eggs. It’s trial and error at first and after that, you’ll know exactly what the best time and temp is in your air fryer model and the size of your eggs.
- We used cold eggs straight from the fridge and it worked fine.
- If you use cook a dozen eggs at a time, you might have to increase cooking time by maybe 2 minutes to make sure all the yolks are cooked through.
- This timing is for large eggs. If you’re using small, medium or jumbo eggs, adjust your time!
- Recipe details are below in the recipe box.

What are the Best Air Fryers?
There’s so many on the market now. You just need to research and find the ones that fits your needs, capacity and style. We group the basket style air fryers into 2 main size groups: 3-4 qt range & the 5-6 qt. range. Here’s our favorites:
Cosori 3.7 qt. Digital Air Fryer – “That’s a stylish Air Fryer” was said as we unboxed the Cosori. Beyond being stylish, it has cooked great. The basket is not as tall and wider than most in its size group, which is perfect. You’ll have a lot better results in an air fryer with single layered, spread out foods, then with ones piled high and thick.
The non-stick basket style (non-wire base) & smoothness of the basket tray is also great for clean up.
Tidylife 4.2 qt. Digital Air Fryer – We have been super pleased with the TidyLife Air Fryer. Texture for several dishes came out noticeably better than many other brands. This one tends to cook a little hotter and quicker.
The non-stick basket style (non-wire base) & smoothness of the basket tray is great for cleaning up.
Good Larger Air Fryers
We like that this Tiluxury 5.8 qt has the non-stick basket (non-wire base). Makes for less sticking for delicate meals (ie baked fish fillets). And we like the digital interface (easier cleaning).
GoWise 5.8 qt. Digital Air Fryer – Another good larger air fryer. All the things we loved about the Tiluxury 5.8 qt, we love about this one too. Great size for families. Non-stick basket. Has a nice cooking range (180°F-400°F).
We’re super pleased with both this one and the Tiluxury. Choosing between the two is mostly up to which you like the look better.
This timing is for large eggs. If you’re using small, medium or jumbo eggs, adjust your time! Also, please read all our tips on the recipe write up page. Also, also, it’s easy to make a mistake and set the temperature too high! Make sure it’s at 270°F and NOT 370°F.
- 4 large eggs
- Place eggs in basket. Air fry at 270°F for 15 minutes. Set your timer! While eggs are cooking, fill a bowl with ice water.
- When eggs are finished, immediately place them in the ice bath for about 5 minutes.
- Peel the eggs. If it’s hard peeling, try peeling them under water.
- If you want your eggs more or less cooked, adjust your timing next time. Enjoy!
- Recipes were cooked in 3-4 qt air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the recipe might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.
- If cooking in multiple batches, the latter batches may cook quicker since the air fryer is now warmer then for the first batch.
- This recipe is written up with Air Fryer NOT preheated. If you preheat, use less time for the cooking.
