Messerwisser answers:

Electromagnets can look in many ways, but they have in common a core of magnetic material, usually soft iron, and a coil, a metal wire wound around the core. When a current passes the wire an electromagnetic field is produced that turns the core into a magnet.
When the current is switched off most of the magnetism disappears.
