WHAT IS AN AIR FRYER? 

An air fryer is a countertop appliance that cooks with a heating element and a fan. The fan helps circulate the hot air around the basket, and it perfectly cooks up your food.

Air Fryers have gained popularity over the past few years since they cook without added oil or fat, therefore healthier cooking.

WHAT ARE THE BEST AIR FRYERS

The best air fryer is one that works for your family. At the same time, there are many different types of air fryers. I always ask people to consider what they are cooking and how many people they are cooking for.

You should consider an Air Fryer Oven Model if you are a baker since baking cookies, pancakes, and pastries are much easier.

But, if you want to reheat frozen foods, go with a basket model.

If you love pressure cooking and air frying, go with a Ninja Foodi. That has both an Instant Pot (pressure cooking) and air fryer built-in.

Pro Tips:

  • This is the standard timing for most air fryers. I have tested and used this recipe a thousand times during my air fryer journey. (Wattage: 1400 to 1700)
  • Always start with one egg to see the exact time you want. Remember, we all like our hard-boiled eggs slightly differently.
  • The brown spots on the egg are either residue from your air fryer or something that is inside the egg. Wipe it off. It’s fine.
  • I used an egg tray, so they wouldn’t roll around and break. You can just put them in as-is.

Will eggs explode in an air fryer?

No, they will not explode. I have made hard-boiled, fried, over-easy, poached, and other eggs, and I have never had any eggs explode on me.

How long can you keep hard-boiled eggs?

Hard-boiled eggs will keep, about a week, whether you peel them or leave them as is.

Unpeeled Hard Boiled Eggs: Store them in an airtight container for about a week.

Peeled Hard-Boiled Eggs: Store them in a bowl of water, which covers the eggs. Make sure to change the water daily.

Can you freeze air fryer hard-boiled eggs?

Yes, my grandmother used to do this during the brutally cold winters in Boston. They will keep for about 1 to 2 months in a freezer-safe bag.

They are great as a quick egg salad sandwich or tossed into a salad or soup.
