  • 12 eggs medium


  • Set your air fryer temperature to 120 C or 250 F but do not preheat.
  • Arrange 11 to 12 eggs in your air fryer basket. Put the basket in and turn on the air fryer. Air fry for 12 minutes for perfect soft-boiled eggs.
  • Remove them from the basket with tongs as they are hot and put them in a large bowl of ice water. Let them cool a bit, peel and enjoy.
  • For hard boiled eggs, I air fry at 120 C or 250 F for 14-15 minutes. Then remove them and put them into a large bowl of water. Peel and consume.
  • For jammy eggs, I air fry at 130C or 270F for about 11 minutes. Then remove them and put them in a bowl of ice water. Peel and enjoy.


1. When you are trying this for the first time, make sure to keep an eye on your eggs. The time may vary a bit depending upon the size of the eggs. Like I mentioned, I can fit about 11 to 12 eggs at a time in my Philips air fryer basket. Use that to judge how big your eggs are.
2. Soft boiled eggs are not runny but have a slight soft yolk. For runny yolks try air frying for about 9-10 minutes at 120 C or 250 F. Jammy eggs have a nice jammy center in the yolk after air frying. 
3. I also tested the recipe for 1, 2 and 4 eggs at one time. For each of these, I took about 13-14 minutes at 120 C for hardboiled eggs and about 11 minutes for softboiled eggs. This is for those who want to do a smaller batch at one go.
4. Hard boiled eggs are perfectly done with a well set yellow yolk.
5. Make sure to immediately put the hot air fried eggs in ice water to stop their cooking.
6. Always use tongs to handle air fried eggs to stop them from burning your hands.
7. Roll the cooled down cooked eggs to break the shell and then peel easily.
8. You can easily store the cooked eggs in the fridge with peel intact for upto a week.
9. Eat the eggs as is or sprinkled with any spices of your liking.
10. Your air frying time will vary depending upon the model and size of your air fryer. Do keep an eye on the eggs when you are trying for the first time.
