Instant Pot Directions
Place 12 Eggs on the pressure cooker trivet in the Instant Pot, Ninja Foodi or pressure cooker and add 1 cup water.
Turn valve to sealing. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes using the quick release once completed.
Use a slotted spoon to move them to a large bowl filled with an ice bath.
Air Frying Directions
Preheat your Ninja Foodi to 270F.
Place 6 eggs in the basket and air fry them for 15 minutes. This will produce a medium boiled egg. If you want them to be more soft boiled, reduce the cooking time. If you want them to be more hard boiled, increase the cooking time.
Before you cook: Although this recipe is for the Ninja Foodi, you may be trying it out in a different model like the Cosori, PowerXL, Emeril, Philips, Skinnytaste models, etc. Please note that all models are different and depending on the age of the model as well as how fresh your eggs are will impact easy peel ability as well as cooking time. Finding the perfect yolk is each person's personal preference so I highly suggest experimenting with one or two before you cook the whole dozen.
For easy removal: I use the wire rack of the Instant Pot silicone sling to easily lift the them out.
Regarding other models: If your particular model does not match the temperature and time settings in the recipe card, consult your manual for further instruction. The Ninja Foodi air frying function is 1800 watts for reference.
Easy Peel Directions: The easiest way to peel Ninja Foodi hard boiled eggs is to soak them in an ice bath immediately upon removal from the Ninja Foodi to immediately stops the cooking process. You can also place the ice water into the refrigerator to further cool them down.
Storage: Store cooked leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Peeled eggs should be stored in a bowl of water in the refrigerator and be sure to change the water daily. Freezing not recommended.
If using the air fryer method, you may see little brown bumps appear on the outside of the shell. Disregard these, they will not harm the egg.
