  • 4 large eggs, refrigerated


Prep Time: 1 minute

Cook Time: 9 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Servings: 4

  1. Preheat the Air Fryer (1 minute)
    • Preheat your air fryer to 270°F (132°C).
  2. Cook the Eggs (9 minutes)
    • Place the eggs in the air fryer basket. Ensure they are not touching each other to allow for even cooking.
    • Cook for 9 minutes for soft-boiled eggs with runny yolks. If you prefer a slightly firmer yolk, increase the time to 11 minutes.
    • While the eggs are cooking, prepare a bowl of ice water.
  3. Ice Bath (Immediately after cooking)
    • Once the eggs are done, carefully remove them from the air fryer using tongs or a spoon and place them directly into the ice water.
    • Let them sit in the ice bath for at least 5 minutes. This stops the cooking process and makes peeling easier.
  4. Peel and Serve (1 minute)
    • Gently tap each egg on a hard surface and peel off the shell.
    • Serve immediately, either halved or as is, with your choice of seasonings or dips.
