    Just let him as long as he cleans up after. A bit of charity isn't a sin right?

    When your're not using your pots and pans, put them in a suit case, and lock that suit case. This should at the very least stop him if he isn't a lock smith.

    Don't wash the pots and pans until you need them.

    Then you both need to confront him together. Not aggressively - knock on his door, take him into the kitchen and show him that this is your cupboard and this is your stuff. Then take him to Wilkos and help him buy his own pans.

    Tell everyone to keep their pans in their room for a week or two. Then he will be forced to buy his own stuff which he will hopefully continue to use.

    Put superglue on the handles before he's due to cook.

    Maybe he can't afford to buy his own pans? You should get him a cheap set of three from Argos or somewhere. I'm sure he would really appreciate your act of kindness, and you would have your own pans back.
