Did you know that you can easily make hard boiled eggs in the air fryer with absolutely no water? It’s one of the many ways this appliance comes in handy every day. It’s also a favorite for making Air Fryer Tortilla ChipsAir Fryer Steak, and Air Fryer Chicken Wings.

We don’t just cook full recipes in the air fryer. There are so many fantastic uses. An air fryer is currently one of the most useful countertop appliances I have in my kitchen. I can cook a steak or chicken breasts for dinner, make broccoli for a healthy side dish, or even make some apple hand pies for dessert.

My family loves it for reheating just about anything – so easy my kids AND my husband can use it! Fast food french fries are often cold by the time we get home so we heat them for a few minutes in the air fryer. Leftover Olive Garden breadsticks get dry in the microwave but they are perfectly soft and chewy when reheated in the air fryer. Our favorite thing to reheat is pizza! It gets hot and melty on top and just slightly crispy on the bottom. We’ve made french toast, muffins, vegetables, tater tots, and now we make hard boiled eggs in the air fryer, too!
