I make a fair number of boxes with box joints. All 3 of my dado sets (Amana, CMT Orange, Oshlun) leave slight bat ears, not desirable in a box. Router would be my first choice, but absent a router table i’d be real tempted to try that Oshlun box joint set. Carbide Processors had it marked down a little earlier this week—and I almost bought it then. The Oshlun dado set I have is a very good set in my opinion, especially for the money.

Unless you’re willing to square the cuts, a flat tooth grind is the minimum starting point. But by the time I get decent FTG, i’d be at least in the neighborhood of the Oshlun box set which will give consistent 1/4” and 3/8” slots with flat bottoms.
