Most electrical product do create some form of EM field; if you have ever used a good metal detector in the home, it more-or-less beeps continuously. It is receiving EM signals from lamp cords, TVs, lights/wiring, refrigerator, etc. Most good quality metal detectors mention that 'testing' is best done outside, and for the reasons stated.

Not all electrical products create what we would think of as electromagnetic fields, some create the opposite, which is why almost all electrical products disrupt our electromagnet fields.

Radiation will radiate omnidirectionally, that is unless it is shielded on the top causing it to bounce to the floor. Electrical products will cause EMI (electromagnetic interference) with any wireless application, however the amounts are usually so minute that you would never notice.
