The Flat Top can rust if it's not treated properly. You never want to stick it in the dishwasher or leave it to soak in a sink. If you're familiar with how to treat cast iron, then the Flat Top is no different. Oil is your friend, and as long as there is a thin layer over the steel it will last forever. The good news is that it's basically indestructible. If you do get some rust showing then a little bit of steel wool or sand paper can take it right off and you just have to put a coat of oil over the spot and it's good as new!
