What is the best way to get a clean peel with a boiled egg?

Using an ice bath is the best way to do this. After you take the eggs out of the air fryer, put them in ice-cold water for a few moments. You can then peel off the shells with ease.

Are certain eggs easier to peel than others?

Store-bought eggs tend to work the best. You can still use this method of farm eggs, but they don’t come quite as clean as the store bought eggs.

Is it safe to boil eggs in air fryer?

Of course! The biggest thing to remember is that the eggs will be really hot after cooking in the air fryer. You can let them sit for a few minutes in the basket or use tongs to remove them and put them into the ice bath.

How to store hard boiled eggs

If you don’t want to peel the eggs right away, you don’t have to! Just store them in the fridge in the shell for the day.
