Sure, unlike a normal Dado set, this is just two blades that are reversible... for 1/4" or 3/8" cuts.

Read your owner's manual, because I am betting all liability for using any dado set is on you. If you have a thread or two after mounted, I would use it. Just make sure on any saw that the thinner blade is on top of the threads, or you will not get a flat bottom cut.

PS: Although the common 5/8" arbor, you may have to make or buy a different throat plate for blade clearance.

I have this set and I am very pleased with it. Makes great box joints on the table saw, BUT - I would highly recommend watching this video

Very limited as a 'dado set' ..... but if those two sizes (only) work for you.

FYI: don't forget about your throatplate, especially if you expect zero clearance.

I was just thinking that and editing for the DWE7485.... different saws have different width throat plates without being zero clearance. I just checked the table saws we have and factory, from 1/4" to 3/8" openings..... this OP could fit without changing.
=========

Before dado sets and as long as the teeth were offset to not touch, my Grandfather stacked regular saw blades with a flat rake tooth for a square bottom. Seemed to work just fine with the only limitation being the length of the saw's arbor.

The OP set has a 20 degree positive rake, so if using with a radial, you want to push into material and not pull.

I like this set. I bought it for my DW745 to cut dados in fewer passes, but I've kept it for my SawStop too. Really easy to set up and leaves a nice, flat bottom. Just be aware that the kerf is not EXACTLY 1/4" or 3/8".

Am I understanding this correctly? This is basically a dado stack with a smaller width that might fit my standard throat plate?

It's better described as two separate & reversible blades meant to work as a pair. The resulting dado is 1/4" one orientation and 3/8" in the other. There are no shims or additional parts. It may fit your existing throatplate depending on model of table saw. If not, you can buy blanks for most saws at Woodcraft or Rockler.

That could be interesting and if not, then exactly what are the measurements of the dado cuts available?

Measure the slot gap you now have. The maximum cut is 3/8" .... On the Ridgid I checked earlier, the plate opening is a bit over 3/8" with the factory plate, but no indication they all are.

Years ago and before stacked sets, the dado sets that came out to fit most saws that had shorter shafts, were the somewhat balanced wobble dado blade example [amazon.com] that are still sold and economical in comparison to stacked sets. There are better models than that example, but I am not chasing it down. My Dad used one for years in his home shop and worked fine. I always thought they would be a little hard on the bearings in a commercial shop, but the goods ones did not have the expected vibration.

This is a great price. I bought mine for $100 at Rockler not too long ago. I've sure enjoyed using this along with an Incra jig for my box joints. Extremely clean cuts with virtually no tear out. Also, on my DW7491 I don't have to swap out the throatplate, so might be the same on the 7485 (would have to measure as stated earlier). My dado set hasn't been used for box joints since buying this.

Off the top of my head, the 1/4" kerf was actually .245. Not a big deal at all if you're making box joints but I was making a bottom panel for a box and I had to plane the solid wood to thickness.

As for the throat plate discussion, the 1/4" kerf fit into my DW745 but the 3/8" kerf did not. The throat opening was more than 3/8" wide but the arbor position was offset a bit. My suggestion is to just make a throat plate. A bit of a distraction but you can make one in about 30 minutes.
