Hard boiled eggs in the air fryer

It worked!
Put your eggs (I did 6) in the basket and air fry 17 min or so at 270. Immediately put the eggs in a bowl of ice and ice water for 5 min, then peel. The shells will slip right off. The cold water bath makes the eggs shrink a bit from the shell making them easy to peel.
The grandkids love hard boiled eggs and we love egg salad so Iíll be doing this a lot.

1. I've done it 3 times and the last time, one leaked

So today I made them in a pot of water the old fashioned way.

If I can find an egg piercer, Iíll probably try the air fryer again.

2. I steam eggs.

1/4 inch water in a pot with close fitting lid, bring to boil, gently put room temperature eggs in the pot and cover for 11 minutes (for me). One egg or a dozen the time stays the same. You might vary the time by a minute either way for your altitude and taste. Transfer to cold/ice water.

This is exceptionally consistent and you can get the yolk set to your personal taste with a little experimentation. 1/4 inch water boils a lot faster than a pot full of water and eggs. I eat at least half dozen boiled eggs a week. Hmm, think I'll get one now . . .

3. Would that be more accurately called baking eggs in

the shell? Since youíre experimenting, have you tried baking them in the oven?

I go the easiest and fastest route and boil the eggs in a saucepan (with water) on the stove. Works every time.

4. I use my Instapot and it only takes five minutes.

Same thing: immerse in ice water and the shells slip off.
