Ninja Foodi Hard Boiled Eggs

We’ve had our Ninja Foodi since 2019 and love to use it for so many things! Making hard boiled eggs in the Foodi makes them super quick and easy to peel!

Are you new to using a Ninja Foodi? Here are a few tips to help you get started and make the perfect hard boiled eggs.

  • Pressure cooking eggs in a Ninja Foodi simplifies the process.
  • You basically add the eggs & water to the Foodi, select the proper function & timer, and set up the lid.
  • There’s no need to wait for the water to boil. Or carefully draining the boiling water when done.

Favorite ways to use hard boiled eggs:

  • egg salad sandwiches
  • as part of charcuterie board
  • alone with fresh cracked black pepper & sea salt
  • deviled eggs
  • with fresh herbs like chives or parsley
  • Easter eggs


When setting up the Ninja Foodi, add 1 cup of water into the cooking pot.

Using either the air fryer basket or the rack (both come with the Foodi), place eggs on a single layer and close lid on the Foodi.

It is important that when using the pressure cooking lid, it is locked into place and the vent lock is set to “seal”. Otherwise, you’ll end up with steam coming out the top and it will not properly come up to pressure. And set the pressure to “high”.

After the timer goes off, quick release the remaining pressure. And carefully, using a slotted spoon move the eggs to an ice water bath (bowl of ice water) for 1 minute.

Drain the water and peel the eggs. Roll the egg gently between your hands and the counter top to loosen the shell and remove the shell from the egg.

How to store hard boiled eggs

Hard boiled eggs will keep in a refrigerator for about a week. I prefer to store them unpeeled to keep them fresh for as long as possible. Store deviled eggs or peeled hard boiled eggs in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3 days.

  1. After owning chickens and the ups n downs making H boiled eggs, I’ve discovered the BEST correct way, is to not boil fresh laid eggs. Only use eggs that are over a week old, then pressure for 5 minutes, then slowly let your ninja naturally steam down for 5 minutes, then soak the eggs in ice water for 10 minutes. BAM, the shells peel off sooo easy
    Store bought eggs are basically done the same way
    But for fresh laid eggs, there is a difference

  2. 5 stars
    I’m sure this recipe is fantastic and I pray I get to use it soon, however our budget is too tight to waste 15 eggs (full single layer basket in my Ninja foodie) in the event that the setting for pressure (“hi” or “lo”) is incorrectly selected, since it remains unlisted in the blog post and recipe.

  3. 5 stars
    WOW! So easy. It’s like the egg couldn’t wait to get out of the shell. Perfectly hard boiled. On high for 6 minutes. Released and an ice bath.

  4. 5 stars
    Boy, I’ve never had such an easy time of making hard boiled eggs. Just did 2 dozen in half an hour, including the warm up, cool down etc. Second batch one cracked, but that’s it. Sure beats boiling them and forgetting them unless you have a timer going, or boiling over. Thank you for this recipe. My Ninja book only takes about 4 eggs and 3-6 minutes, no other guidelines.
    Wanted to give it 5 stars, but it wouldn’t let me.
