  • 1-12 lg Eggs
  • Bowl of Ice Water


  1. Place eggs in one layer in the air fryer basket.

  2. Close the air fryer lid and set the temperature to 250° and set the time to 16 minutes.

  3. Choose 10 minutes if you want them soft, 12 minutes for medium (remember, your air fryer may cook differently, so do a test!).

  4. Start the air fryer.

  5. When the cook cycle is finished, open the air fryer and very carefully transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.

  6. When they are cooled down, peel them or store them in the fridge until ready to use.

Recipe Notes

This temperature and time works with my air fryer, the Ninja Foodi. Your model may give you different results. Test 1 or 2 eggs following this method, and then adjust to your desired results.
