If you have an air fryer in your kitchen, then you’re probably looking for all kinds of different ways to use it. I know I am.

While air fryer scrambled eggs may seem a little odd at first, once you get the hang of scrambling eggs in an air fryer, you may never go back to the stovetop method again.

What is the benefit of making scrambled eggs in an air fryer?

In my mind, there are several.

Since they’re not made on the stovetop with an open flame, they’re safer for the kids (or even very elderly people) to make without worry.

Making eggs in an air fryer will keep the kitchen cool, especially during those very hot days of summer.

It’s fun and different!

Air fryer cooking is one of the easiest cooking methods there is, so it’s far less intimidating for those people who aren’t quite comfortable in the kitchen….yet.

What are the most important things to know about making scrambled eggs in an air fryer?

Each air fryer will be different. Just like every oven, in every household is different.

It is important not to cook eggs at too high a temperature right from the start. Low and slow is always the best bet for cooking eggs whether in an air fryer or on the stovetop.

Check on the eggs frequently, and stir as needed. If you like larger curds, stir less frequently. If you prefer smaller curds, stir more often.

Do not walk away from the air fryer while cooking scrambled eggs. Devote your time in the kitchen preparing the toast or juice while the eggs are cooking, but don’t be tempted to leave the room and get involved elsewhere. The eggs require your attention.

Setting a kitchen timer may prove to be invaluable in preparing the air fryer scrambled eggs. Setting the timer for 2-3 minute intervals while the eggs are cooking may be important for the first few times you’re making air fryer eggs.

What is the best temperature for cooking eggs in an air fryer?

This is something I learned by trial and error (as you’ll see in my YouTube video).

While I didn’t want to cook the eggs on too high a temperature at first, I learned (slowly) that cooking them on too low a temperature isn’t a smart way to go either. After all, if it takes forever to cook scrambled eggs in an air fryer, what’s the point?

I found that the best temperature for cooking scrambled eggs, in my particular air fryer, was at 300-degrees for approximately 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently.

Here I am making my scrambled eggs in the air fryer. I hope you’ll enjoy the video;
