You can boil water in your air fryer. I am not sure of the exact specs, but I would set it to at least 400˚F and place the water into a glass measuring cup and into the fryer basket. Check every 4 minutes or so until it's boiling. Be careful when removing it.

Just boiled 4 eggs in my air fryer 10 mins is not enough maybe 12 to 15 min because the yolk was not done all the way.

That timeframe worked for us, however, it might be worth me revisiting to double-check my timing.
