There’s a lot of tearout on that cut. You don’t need to invest dado set at the level of a Forrest to get great results, but something better than the Mibro might be in order…..Oshlun, Avenger, Freud, CMT, and Delta/DeWalt offer some good sets for </= ~ $100. For ~ $150-$190 the Infinity Dadonator is the cat’s pajamas.

The tips mentioned should help, as well as slowing down your feed rate. If you’ve got a router, a sharp router bit may yield better results too.
