Some Common Questions About Making Air Fryer Hard-Boiled Eggs

Always use cold eggs.
How Long Can You Keep Hard Boiled Eggs?
They usually stay for about 4 to 5 days. They tend to keep better if you do not peel them.

Can You Freeze Hard Boiled Eggs?
Yes, although it is only recommended that you freeze the hard-boiled eggs. Just toss the hard-boiled yolks into an airtight container. They should last between 1 and 2 months.
The air fryer YOU OWN will ultimately determine how long your egg needs to be cooked for. While this is frustrating, but I am telling you, once you nail the time, it’s a game-changer My best advice for anyone starting and wanting to prepare this recipe is to try two eggs. Do not try an entire dozen eggs, then set your time and temperature, put them into an ice bath, which stops the cooking; wait a few minutes and peel them, are they done? Do they need a minute or two less or more, then add another two eggs and try the change you noted. Then on a piece of paper or your phone, write down the exact time and temperature used. The next time you are already, and by the 40th time, you won’t need your reminder.
