Total fail not even the white was turned white
Geoff: It worked really well.
I tried another recipe yesterday, and it was pretty much a disaster. I cooked two in their shells, and the pair of egg scissors I have were completely useless, and the eggs, when I managed to get them open, were 98% of the way to hard-boiled. I now have no intention of cooking them in their shells, whether or not I cool them in cold water for 10 minutes to make them easier to peel. I’d like a proper and warm poached egg, thank you very much.
I put each shelled egg in a silicone muffin cup, and used Recipe #2. I cooked them individually, since I had way different times and temps, and wanted to see which recipe worked best. I also put the muffin cup in a little aluminum pie pan which rattled, so I put one of my air fryer racks over it to weight it down. I also used two temperatures in order to get it done. I kept checking it, and ultimately ended up with a tough, rubbery white, and barely soft yolk. Result: slightly better, but barely liquid yolk, and too fiddly on the technique.
Egg #2, recipe #3. Same method, your times. I added 1 minute for a total of 9 minutes @ 250º. I checked it at 5 min, then 8. I am thinking maybe 8 minutes would work, with a 2-minute stand time in the turned off air fryer. (I hard-boil 2 eggs @ 250º for 17 minutes, btw, and that works really well.)
The results for Egg #2: just like the poached eggs my mother used to make me with tender whites, and a runny yolk, with no boiling/simmering, no electric egg poacher to preheat and then clean. No mess. no peeling, no fiddling, just plain eggs without the ham, or crumbled sausage, cheese, tomatoes, spinach, etc. I was beginning to despair of finding what I wanted-essentially, plain poached eggs in the air fryer when I found your recipe. Cheers, mate, from a Yank in rainy California.
Glad it worked well for you. Once you find a working cooking time recipe, you tend to never go back to the old way of doing things ;)
Biggest fail ever. Whites were completely uncooked.
This is a total waste of time. They weren’t cooked at all
Perfect, soft yolks, set whites, excellent dunkin’. My Ninja only goes to 270F on reheat, so I cooked the egg for 7 and a bit.
This recipe was a fail for me. Even extended at 9 minutes, the whites came out completely uncooked. A runny mess.
The eggs came out perfect but 10 MINUTES in cold water is CRAZY.! A minute or two is sufficient to stop the cooking process, Any longer and they will be cold.
The important thing is to know the wattage of your air fryer. They times will be very different depending on how powerful they are! Add your air fryers wattage so that people won’t be shocked when their egg doesn’t come out right when they cooked it the same way!
I had a perfect soft boiled eggs in a air fryer 11min. on 140C
RAW! Not even close to being done! F@($ing waste of my time!
An egg costs , what, 20 cents ? an air fryer costs , what $50 to $200.
All eggs are not equa
All air-fryers are not equal
How about all you people that failing that are failing, put on your big boy/girl bibs and spend a couple of bucks and an hour or so to experiment
Every cook/chef I know is never satified with version 0.1, all the successful ones succeed before v2.0
Stop being entitled !!!
My Tower 4l AF(1400w) cooked my eggs perfectly following this recipe. For a more runny yolk go for 7 mins
A waste of time and money. The eggs were raw.
For clarity….do you put eggs in basket and air fryer for the time it takes to reach temperature and then cook for the relevant time i.e. 3 mins warm up and 8 mins cook at temp?
